What's with all the no-chatty chat chat?

Why is it so difficult to accept that our beliefs are the cause of all our social problems. As Christian's who believe in Jesus, most of you will admit that every other belief that does not fit in with your own is in error, that is a part of a delusion that spawns from a lie. But it's not we should go one God further (As Richard Dawkins did) Go one belief further (As Richard Dawkins should)

Instead of asking, "what do I believe?", ask, "what do I want to believe?"
Belief is the easy way we've learnt to ignore our fears of the unknown. Our species must let go of believing itself if we have any chance to survive beyond this tiny little planetary system.

Does this mean you want to believe that you have no beliefs?

As Osho said "I don't believe in believing"
But I digress. You haven't offered me any evidence that the human brain is equipped to believe. It is equipped for imagination and fantasizing, but unlike beliefs they don't impose anything objective on the emotional side of our brains.

I am sitting now on 3 year's of freedom from Anti-Psychotic medication and interruption of the Mental Health Authorities. Due solely on my transition away from forming belief systems. I think 3 year's without a Psychotic relapse is :)

I'm a big fan of Zen. There's a lot we can learn from that, but Zen master or not, everyone believes in something, even if that something is we're just a bunch of atoms spinning around some po-dunk planet in a random and meaningless universe.
