Any credo takes its power from the common belief in the force of any beginning.
Any beginning exercises force upon human beings because of the previous ignorance about the fact which begins.
It is the single innocent form of ignorance and thus the beginning does not prove guilt to anyone.
The beginning in credos primarily consists in the change suffered by their advocates. No one knows himself as an advocate, since the human life is larger than the limited function of being supporter of an idea or belief. Such large life accustoms us with the sense of being responsible for states already begun.
Constantly, we do not know what does mean a beginning for ourselves.
Moreover, since the highest beginning of the life itself is totally unknown, every beginning is believed as being a start of life.
Thus, a credo surprisingly makes us to believe that we can establish a veritable beginning of our life. It is not difficult to understand that many times a credo is defended with your own life: the renouncement to a credo is equated with the abandon of the life itself.
Still, that larger life put always the man to face various kinds of endings. The force of beginnings is diminished by the consciousness of the current endings, saliently pointed out by the phenomenon of aging.
For this reason, the non-religious credos are more liable to renouncement than the religious ones, which fight with the endings through the belief in an eternal life.
Consonantly, the non-religious credos are able to claim for them the lesser impressive status of objective beliefs, which might set them farther from an area of personal life that is affected by endings.
