My Irrationality Is Based On My Experience

At an early age I was exposed to religion and I did my best to adhere to its precepts and indeed I found it to be inspirational.

But as I became better educated in science and especially physics I began to realize that my religious beliefs were irrational and I abandoned them in college.

Then some years later I began to see that there was a glimmer of possible truth despite it being irrational on the basis of science. Then finally I had some irrational experiences of my own, and they are continuing.

What I have learned is that only a small part of the world is truly rational. The irrational, on the basis of accepted science, does seem to exist despite what scientists say.

So irrational beliefs based on irrational experiences, in my mind, makes irrational beiefs acceptable. Much of the world has experienced them. In fact they have become subject to scientific investigation.
