should have sticky elements.
I’m not into denigrating people for their beliefs. I may not agree with their chosen philosophies, but I have to respect them as one human to another. I see a belief system as a person’s connection to others and the world around them. Differing concepts of the afterlife and the existence or not of a God mean nothing when it comes to my acceptance of the person in front of me. The connection is what most impresses me. A good belief system needs to have glue in it to bind the believers to the rest of humanity, with no reserves.
