Belief Systems & Fairy Tales

BELIEF SYSTEMS are sort of fairy tales that are used as a substitute for reality when (1) reality is not known or (2) reality is preferred not to be known. Although a belief system may be a logical construct, it is not necessarily true. Truth has no relationship to logic. Logical constructs can be designed to prove anything. The classic example is the science which "proves" that a bumble bee cannot possibly fly. Clearly, the bumble bee lives in a different belief system because it seems to have no trouble at all flying around. Essentially all the population of Earth lives under one or more of many belief systems.
