  Types of Belief Systems

We evolve Belief Systems in 4 ways:
by Emotional Appeal
by Social Custom
by Factual Beliefs
by Intentionality

Belief Systems: Type One (Emotional Appeal)
The Family-State-Church emotionally appeals
to fear, sympathy, distrust or hatred
to mold us into a desired behavioral state.
In effect,
the The Family-State-Church intentionally cripples our ability
to observe and reason.
Therefore, we become emotionally dependent and fearful
experiencing shame/regret for conduct
not in accordance with "the program".
We believe out of fear what we are told, such as:
"You can't..." or
"You are going to get a spanking if you..."

Belief Systems Type Two (Social Custom)
As we grow older,
The Family-State-Church appeals to our needs and insecurities.
We learn the logic behind social custom & common knowledge, "fact".
The Family-State-Church often converts Type 2 to Type 3 beliefs.
We believe out of (our learned) need for social acceptance:
"You probably ought to..." or
"Sometimes you have to..."

Belief System Type Three ("Factual" Beliefs)
The Family-State-Church puts forth so-called factual evidence.
Subtle obfuscation occurs as a conclusion is not based on a belief,
but on science, technology, bodies of hard evidence.
We believe without question the dictums, such as:
"For every action there is an equal and positive reaction." or
"Seeing is believing."

Belief Systems Type Four (Intentionality)
We override The Family-State-Church.
We intentionally create our own beliefs.
These beliefs are temporary and changeable
as there is no "hard reality" to reflect.
Belief systems are art forms, hence, fluid
and enable us to explore other systems.
We believe simply because:
"I decide." and
"Things always work out for me."
