Believing the Unbelievable? We All Do. Why?

Believing the Unbelievable? We All Do. Why?

I have always been amazed to learn what people believe. How could they possibly believe this or that, which I regard as unbelievable? With years comes wisdom, or at least a bit. Unbelievable?

Beliefs and Stories, Not Facts, Actually Rule the World

Beliefs and Stories, Not Facts, Actually Rule the World

What happens in our world is not based on facts. Beliefs and stories actually determine situations, events, and outcomes. What we think of as facts are mostly based on our perceptions, which in turn are based on what we are told, our personal feelings and biases, and our beliefs. Stories, often agenda-driven, shape much of what we believe and trust.
