Why do people use feelings to base their beliefs. I don't mean religion, but a factual issue.
Do you know anyone, who in a discussion over something that needs solid, hard facts can only contribute " because I feel that way" Then they are the ones who later cry the blues when it was wrong and caused them grief. Then they think you made a lucky guess.
Great questions, Penny!
Making decisions on feelings rather than facts is much easier in the short term, that's why. It takes time and commitment to search out the facts and make an informed decision.
The emotional part of you brain works faster than the logical part of you brain. Most of the time when people use their feelings as facts they just spit out the first thing they think of without putting much thought into it.
Very thought provoking question Lot of people give more importance to what their heart says as opposed to what their head says. I think its a matter of logical vs emotional. Logical people go by hard facts while the more sentimental or emotional types have strong beliefs that they find difficult to let go.
People naturally use feeling before using logic. For example, when someone is in a situation n which s/he must make a decision right now, no time anymore to think longer. Then, what s/he can do just follow heart.
I go with my gut feeling and that works well for me. Time is not enough to stop and think do what you think is right but with caution

Why must religious people impose their beliefs on others? Why can't religious people keep religion out of politics? Why must Muslims kill others over their beliefs? Why can't Christians keep their beliefs out of politics and out of schools?

Why do people of different religions constantly argue which is the the "true" religion?It seems like a never ending cycle. It seems like a war of words. I became caught in it at one time myself. I don't know that anyone will ever win it?
