Belief Systems

It must be true - it was in the newspapers 


I Believe - by Joe Sinclair

What are beliefs and what is a belief system?  Starting from the premise that beliefs are assumptions that we adopt to help us make sense out of experience, Joe has described aspects of his own belief system.

He deals with his perception of the differences between belief and faith, and then proceeds to contrast belief, reality and reason - using, in large measure, arguments from the eighteenth century philosopher David Hume both to disparage and to validate his own belief in "rational miracles".



This is the first of a series wherein others will describe their own beliefs.
