Dear Mary -
I do agree with this assessment;
"Often we take
a statement to be true not because we know it is true,
but because we like it, or our family believes it,
or because it's in a holy book -- not for any "logical"
reasons. We become emotionally attached to our beliefs
first, then use logic to justify them. "
For this reason we go round in circles about various topics. It's hard to let go of what you want to believe ... but it's not a quality of truth that we neglect logic, it's a characteristic of a dishonest search.
Will you still love me in the morning???? :)
