I think Kyle mentioned that when we're talking about perception, one's worldview
is their primary frame of reference when attempting to understand all the external "stuff" (and perhaps the self as well).
The topic of religion, then, definitely comes into play since often it shapes and molds our experience and perceptions of what is and is not acceptable, good or bad/evil, etc. I enjoy hearing what other people have to say about religion since I have limited knowledge of other religious practices and beliefs-I'm from Nebraska, I mean, c'mon. I think it's good to clarify misconceptions and speak openly and learn from one another about religion. Certainly, some religious dogmas, parables, doctrine, etc. seem absurd and we wonder why people would claim, as truth, something that seems so obviously irrational and illogical. But there must be something
to be gained from someone else's interpretation/experiences otherwise, why partake in the podcast (the dialectic) at all?!
Tig, Kyle, David, and Aaron, Thanks for making me look like a fool with a big smile on my face as I listen to PB on my headphones. Whether I'm riding my bike or driving along the highway, I'm always hyper-aware that I likely look ridiculous
to oncoming traffic but that doesn't stop me from enjoying the best podcast out there!
