"Or, again, perhaps some of the dualities produced by language give rise to BOTH (and more) delusions. Speaker vs listener; watcher vs watched; celestial pronouncements vs prayer... Language is wonderful - almost magical. This is largely because it…"

"Lots of interesting points of view here. The title of Johnson's book, "God is Watching You," probably phrases the idea to forcefully for many. Some people clearly don't ascribe anything going on in their heads to an inner…"

"Even feeling there's just one "person" in your head is a delusion. I'm not sure you're allowing room for more than one perception of imagined consciousness here. Sure, I know all the voices in my head are my own, but many…"

"Thank you. When you can do 47 words without it being a run-on sentence, that's what it's all about, isn't it? ;)"

"Can you justify that statement? I don't feel watched in the slightest either. I'm perfectly happy in the knowledge that there are NOT two people inside my head. This is an illusion - just like God."

"I think in psychology they might say that's a trait of being "well centered". I do sometimes here arguments, and sometimes their voice actually comes from my memory of what other people said or might say. I wouldn't be surprised…"

"I'm struck by how little attention is given to indoctrination at young ages. Religion doesn't come up as a choice when one finally is old enough to think more rationally. It starts when we're most sensitive to parental and peer…"

SteveInCO replied to Casey Dorman's discussion 'A scholarly argument in favor of belief in God - Is it valid?'
"If that turns out to be the case, then the whole argument is blown out of the water.  It would be an indication that this "feeling watched" thing is NOT inborn with religion piggybacking on it, but rather that religious indoctrination…"
