There is no god

There is no god but reality, and its prophet is science.

  1. Cognitive dissonance, holding two mutually exclusive beliefs in your mind concurrently, is almost always treated as a slipshod or un-rigorous approach to thought and formulation of personal systems of belief. I, however, think that fiction is the loophole in that gut-wrenchingly tightassed approach to thought.

    Our lives are narratives shaped by sensory input. What your mother did was write a story that made her feel good, and not only is there nothing wrong with that, it's also healthy, cathartic, and creative. This is a discussion I'm very much interested in continuing.
