As a child, I was sorely puzzled by the behaviour of other children. At age 67, I am ever so slowly learning about the behaviour of people, including myself.

Anybody who tries to bamboozle me with sloppy arguments will be rewarded with an intellectual spanking.

Why do people stay with a belief system (aka a religion) even though they question it.
anglophone comments on Nov 25, 2020:
IMHO, it takes three separate aspects of personality to be in the habit of independent thought. 1 is cognitive ability. 2 is inclination. 3 is self-confidence. By way of a contrapositive demonstration, think about the local village idiot, a mentally lazy person, and anybody who is frightened by their own shadow. If any one of those three aspects of personality are missing, it seems to me that such a person cannot engage in independent thought. Just look at the number of panhandlers in Florida.
