A Meditation on Faith: Egocentricity

The entrenched popularity of religious zeal, partisanship, and nationalism…

… has little to do with the veracity of their doctrines or the virtue of their moral foundations.

Their popularity has everything to do with the strength of their self-serving wish fulfillment.

And so, your piety, allegiances, and patriotism are not virtues in the least, but symptoms… symptoms that you still have much more to learn about life… and especially about your own ignorance and prejudices.
