so they believe in that they don’t believe …makes sense
comment reaction stemmed from them reading/seeing this article here https://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/life/106066133/faith-to-faithless-the-group-that-supports-people-who-no-longer-believe
Would other way might happen?
Perhaps theist feel,there should really more likely be, some strange weird feeling,of what would suddenly be expected to shoot out through the end of humans big toe? (like “supernaturally” or something?)
Like, an so, the human brain is usually used for ?
A number of theist still fail to figure out,that human faith beliefs, are in fact the end result of human brain being programmed to believe in God.That’s why faith groups prefer, to retain the right, to start programming their children, to believe in a-God,while the children are still very young. Because while young human brains are also far easier to shape
It also explain why some children will become Christian, while others may instead become Islamist, or Hindu and so on
Its got so much to do with programming of the brain (and so number of slightly different program-editions are also being selected, to be used, so as to help program a particular flavor, of faith belief)
And because a brain remain malleable, then it follow, that re-programming also isn’t impossible
You’ve probably heard kid’s brains compared to sponges, but perhaps a more apt comparison would be Play-Doh — because while these organs are incredibly malleable at first, they get less pliable and harder to shape over time, as Dr. Jana explains. (Kind of like Play-Doh after you leave it out too long.)
“External experiences help to shape the architecture of the developing brain,” she says. And while it’s never too late to teach the brain new tricks, you can make a dramatically bigger difference in the early years of your child’s life.
“In the first five years, for the least amount of effort you get the biggest return,” she says.
That’s why all that “serve and return” is so crucial, whether you’re playing peekaboo or reading books or singing songs.
“All the stuff that’s cute and warm and fuzzy and nice to do with young children has more meaning and impact than people realize,” says Dr. Jana, and studies have shown that a “caring, responsive adult” is the “single most important factor” in a child’s development.
Getting back to the slowly-stiffening Play-Doh metaphor, you might be wondering if, after the age of 5, your kid’s brain is too tough to shape. Dr. Jana puts it this way:
“I always tell my patients, the last time I checked it’s possible to rewire a 100-year-old house, it’s just going to cost a lot more, take a lot longer, and not be as good as if you’d done it right in the first place.”

So this science can also help to explain many things about humans. For instance.
This science can even help to explain why exclusive brethren wouldn’t feel like there is anything wrong , with looking down their noses at non exclusive brethren, and are freely able to see non brethren, like as if non brethren are lesser valued type of human being,than what the-brethren people should be considered as being
This also help explain why,a brethren member, wont think twice ,about their act of running away from the scene of a accident,of what they themselves were actively involved in.And may even be prepared to try and hide evidence https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12015112
This help to explain why, few brethren would even seem to have a healthy sense of conscience either, in regard to the way that their own brethren group, has been actively involved, in trying to cover up sex abuse and silence potential witness, by paying people to keep silent, through use of confidentiality contract https://www.stuff.co.nz/world/australia/98220593/potential-witness-in-exclusive-brethren-sex-abuse-case-paid-to-remain-silent
And so on
Brethren minds, had been programmed to learn how to act in this manner
This science can even help to explain why generally our society will see little wrong with the way that the Brethren RRT works too https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/rapidreliefteam?source=feed_text
Because the brains of human within society, generally, have been programmed to believe that its is all quite ok , to observe/experience how church groups may not choose to help ex members of their cult ,while also purposely deciding to actively help the general public instead (so to therefore help the cult conjure up continued support)
The public is simply learned how (IE:been programmed over generations)to become fairly well accustomed to this kind of practice. To help highlight this fact,let me pose this question, how many Catholic, did you observe, who had been so speedy quick to promptly care to help provide relief to ex Catholics who had experienced sexual abuse?
Society is long been programmed to accept that Church groups will retain total freedom to pick and choose in regard to whom they will decide to help, or punish
Humans have long been programmed to fully accept this practice throughout generations
That even Pope Francis wont be heard condemning this practice either
Beliefs can still change. Because the human brain remain malleable.Kind of like play-doh Although it is always more malleable while human brains are still young.
Less malleable once the human brain gets older.
Which bring us to another understanding . One whats totally worthwhile thinking about too
Why do so many adult ex brethren still find it so hard to handle even hearing/seeing beliefs, of people who have alternative views ?
So whats with that then ?
Because the older the brain become. Then the harder it also is, to change
Could be correct
Perhaps some people might be best to spend far less time in church. And a little more time reading through science books? (do it for Christs sake.IE: so you do the figure of Jesus Christ, the honor, of then not needing to depict Jesus as a clueless ignorant bigot type faith figure.Like what well meaning theist, too often, still un-mindfully will tend to depict him as being like).
As perhaps it might then help do far more, for exercising our ability to learn how to begin to have far more empathy and compassion for other people too? (even people we don’t like.Because we can begin to at least understand them, better, and even if we may still dislike the way that their brains been programmed.We learn that babies are in fact not born as brethren extremist,or Islamist extremist intent on killing,or even as murders or as rapist or as thief’s, and so on)
Like… hope its ok ,for me,to be just saying it ? ..hmmm. Hopefully i wont need to be another ex eb who’ll promptly be banned ? .. hmmmm
People are so easily able to
leave escape brethrenism
How easy does the brethrenism-within ,then manage to finally begin to escape from within-them ?
Perhaps that’s a fairly interestingly important question worthwhile pondering ?
