Thank you, interesting post, but what an odd analogy. The rat was exhibiting a behaviour which, once learned, enabled its survival. I think that would be the conclusion, based on evolutionary biology, wouldn't it?Quote
Are you saying that my Christianity (or any organized Religion) is the wrong (superstitious) behavior that finds the reward anyway--or that there is no reward?
How would you tell the difference between wrong superstitious behaviour and right superstitious behaviour? I've never heard of that comparison. Superstitious behaviour is superstitious behaviour, it has no moral code. Human beings imagine there are spirits/gods acting outside of nature which, over the millennia, they have decided need placating or worshipping, or consulting, or being deferred to. Not me!
