Belief systems and religions are a strange issue in our existance. They can either make you or break you. What you believe is the truth form your reality which becomes so part of you that it can drive you insane, makes you sick or liberates you. Everyone wants to know what the truth is and we are all on a search. However, how deluded we often are along the way.

Below are 3 videos that show exactly what I am trying to say. They are not intended to offend anybody's sentiments and beliefs but with these short videos I like to be able to get blog readers to be aware of the mechanism of beliefs and treat it as such - just beliefs. And if need be, there should be the courage to dump these beliefs however long we have been attached to them. Otherwise we are only deluding ourselves by feeling that we need to be loyal to some tradition or other by sticking to our beliefs.

And now check out the next one from Professor Richard Dawkins, author of the book The God Delusion. Here he is answering someone in the audience who was enquiring about the validity of his belief in God. He needed only a short answer for that. But again, will he be able to listen....
