On the Sets of Beliefs


It is easier to replace a belief with another than to replace what binds some beliefs together with another kind of tie.

Because the tie between beliefs is an indefinite set of complex human actions and not only the product of mind as it is the belief itself.  There are involved feelings, gestures, words, and ways of life in any set of beliefs. For instance, for the believer in a set of religious doctrines, such a set is not composed only of doctrines, but also of the multitude of acts of praying, singing, or going to the church; also, the same set is present in his social relations.

For this reason, one who wants to change the tie between someone’s beliefs might assume the harmful duty of changing his life.

Nonetheless, nobody has a single tie of beliefs. Because all the things we meet in life are tied and the man do not acquire only disparate beliefs about such things, but there are assimilated their ties, too.

In this case, it is sufficient to turn someone to another set of beliefs than that he claims loudly as a creed.

Such another set is the multitude of judgments about the life of our body. The judgments about things which are pleasant or not appear to be unified as strong as a set of religious beliefs. They encompass one’s entire life, too. And it is not surprisingly that the religions primarily fight with carnal or bodily sins.

However, just a few dare to show the bodily life as a set of beliefs able to replace the intellectual beliefs.
