    Pretty much all of philosophy, psychology and rational thought is about pursuing facts and logic over instinct and intuition.

      Doesn’t make sense. By your logic, consciousness is unnatural. Psychological heuristics exist for the sole purpose of helping us understand and conquer the environment, so what qualifies you to decide which mental processes are bad or good?

        Consciousness is not unnatural, if you want to find truth it very often involves suppressing and/or going around your primal instincts and emotions because they are flawed. For example using measuring tools instead of just eyeballing something.

        no its not, platonic philosophy, which is the only genuine philosophy, is exclusively about giving expression to your intuition

        That’s primitive and unintelligent.

            If Plato were alive today he would not believe the same things, you would probably be mad that he’s a lib or has higher education. He was brilliant, but dealing with limited information

    No shit? How else would people come up with the idea of gods or the afterlife, since there's no physical evidence for that? Of course it's a quirk of human neurology, like the monster under your bed.

    Humans instinctively believe that the Earth is flat, that the sun revolves around it, that fire flows downwards in tunnels, that the best way to stop aquaplaning is to brake, that all nonempty, totally ordered sets have a maximum and that the equator has the biggest deserts instead of the biggest forests.

      I don't think that's an universal instinct, more like failure of education for northerners.
      On the other hand "what is the biggest desert on Earth?" is a common trick question that keeps tripping people up. Antarctica

          What I'm saying is that they probably just got wrong sources rather than wrong instincts.

          On the other hand "Earth is more arid above the tropics" is probably counter-intuitive (even if it makes perfect sense if you think about it.)

    I mean this fact is why I think widespread belief in gods is a result of a cognitive bias most people naturally have.
    It's super easy and natural for us to anthropomorphize things. Whenever you get frustrated with an inanimate object and hit it or yell at it in frustration you're demonstrating that cognitive bias.

    Nietzsche identified the cause of the human predisposition to dualism almost 150 years ago:
    >In ages of crude, primordial cultures, man thought he could come to know a second real world in dreams: this is the origin of all metaphysics. Without dreams man would have found no occasion to divide the world. The separation into body and soul is also connected to the oldest views about dreams, as is the assumption of a spiritual apparition that is, the origin of all belief in ghosts, and probably also in gods. "The dead man lives on, because he appears to the living man in dreams." So man concluded formerly, throughout many thousands of years.

    This is what babies actually believe, lol, nothing to do with Christianity or Shitslam:

    “ e.g. they start out believing they are god (newborns appear to be solipsistic), and soon believe their parents are gods, because they believe they cause every pain they suffer, that they cause the rain and thunder, that they can cause food or toys to materialize or disintegrate at will, that in fact they control literally every aspect of life and experience. “

    Dualism is a very basic observation that hasn't been proven wrong beyond reasonable doubt. It's obvious that your own consciousness exists, it's reasonable to assume that the outside material world exists due to its stability, and isn't controllable with thought like the "mental world" is. It is fairly reasonable to assume other people are conscious too.
    Spirituality is almost like an overcorrection for infant solipsism and lacking object permanence in that you assume non-animal objects have consciousness too, and also mental objects have permanence. Its an *over*correction because of course a lot of it is just ad hoc bullshit.

    I thought that was obvious. Humans are predisposed to be magical thinkers. Even most self-professed atheists have illogical superstitions. It's a tool the human mind uses to make sense of the world and fill in logical gaps. Some people just decided to make a theological structure out of it.

    atheists are too dumb to realize this points towards theism being an evolved behavior rather than the result of communing with an actual deity.
