Our beliefs govern our lives. A well known fact by many psychologists . Believing in god's will helps in patients recovery . Some psychological experiments indicate the power of thinking on human psychological and physical state. According to behavioral cognitive theories , there is an indirect relation between beliefs and behaviors. Beliefs affect way of thinking which enhances or suppresses behaviors. So. beliefs affect behaviors . The previous fact is well represented at Losing a dear person
so, your words say that you agree with me . I said that believes govern our lives.. I didn't only mention good effects of beliefs on our behaviors but also I mentioned bad effects saying "enhances or suppresses behaviors" . My illustrative example was about losing a dear person ofcourse in such case most of our beliefs are passive.
Ha ha. This is more like a conversation than a debate.
If you said what I said, pretty subtle there.
But we'll take Muslims for example to add on to my idea.
They want peace and will only declare war for self defense.
But Osama bin Laden committed terrorism due to the fact that the United States established military bases on Saudi Arabia and claims that it's a declaration of war against God.
I'm not religious, but I do like to "play God."
Again you agree with me that beliefs govern our behaviors. Bin Laden belief was not only peace but also the right to defend his country and his religion. according to his beliefs, the military bases on Saudi Arabia represent threat to their peace. So, his beliefs resulted in terrorist acts.
