We know intelligent people believe in God… but why? How do smart people end up accepting so many forms of irrational dogma?
That’s why I always have a lot of respect for people who manage to break through all of that nonsense. When everyone around you is convinced of the truth of religion, it takes a lot to admit to yourself that they all might be wrong. To say that out loud and actively fight against irrational dogma? It’s never easy.
