Belief and Rationality/Irrationality

22:50 03 Mar 2007

Do people have rational reasons for believing things that are irrational?

For the purposes of this discussion, I’ll define “irrational beliefs” as “belief in things that are demonstrably untrue”. For example, the belief that the Earth is less than 10,000 years old. I regard this as demonstrably false because it’s either untrue, or almost everything we understand about the physical laws of the universe goes out the window.

Robert Anton Wilson, RIP

He died last week, after a long illness. His work has been a big influence on my life, so I wanted to mark his passing.

Robert Anton Wilson in need

Not sure how many fans of his read my blog, but he’s dying and is apparently in need of cash. If you appreciated his work, you can donate money via PayPal (details can be found at that link). He’s certainly added a lot to the richness of my life through his work, and I wish him all the best.
