  • Deliberate Belief: Diary of a Religious Crisis By MattBerry, Why do I believe what I believe If I were to persist, unquestioningly, with the presumptions of my own culture, then in Germany 1939, I most certainly would have been a Nazi If born into the Ku Klux Klan, I most certainly would have been a racist.On the other hand, if I were born into sainthood and conferred great value upon humanity, I would be accidental and thereforeWhy do I believe what I believe If I were to persist, unquestioningly, with the presumptions of my own culture, then in Germany 1939, I most certainly would have been a Nazi If born into the Ku Klux Klan, I most certainly would have been a racist.On the other hand, if I were born into sainthood and conferred great value upon humanity, I would be accidental and therefore without merit At some point in my life I must examine my cultural andmoral heritage at some point I must transcend the official message of my culture and identify those natural laws which influence my behavior and account for my beliefs.Thus far, the sum of my faith has been determined by having too few parts at its disposal In times past, the Hopi built his pueblo out of adobe and the Eskimo, his igloo out of ice How could it havebeen otherwise The Hopi did not have ice The Eskimo did not have clay Just so, I build my faith out of the facts available to me, the nearest facts, the facts of my cultural inheritance Suppose that I refuse to challenge this inheritance Is my belief system then than that of an animal in a zoo which has had its label securely fastened to its cage All are agreed, this is a leopard and that a cow just as we have the Christians here, the Muslims there, the Buddhists down the way And if I claim to have made my choice, do I do so with any difference than a duck chooses to quack and not to bark A duck quacks, a dog barks, I parrot my culture Do I want for myself A born Christian claims Jesus a born Muslim, Muhammad a modern Japanese, no religion DoI want for myself Truth does not begin with an answer onbehalf of which all questionsmustconstantly rearrange themselves Truthbegins with fearless questions.
