I think that most people gain comfort from certainty, to have the truth is much like a warm blanket that one can wrap themselves in. It provides a sense of safety that provides a tremendous level of relief in this crazy world. When such certainty is threatened, it is often seen as an attack and retaliation, is almost inevitable..
I see this trend repeatedly in several ideologies, religions, politics, etc, etc. It is very rare, that I see anyone just let go and acknowledge that they have no certainty in this world, that they just don't know. It is little wonder why, I mean, who wants the comfort of certainty ripped away from them, who wants to be left out in the bitter cold? Certainty brings upon a sense of comfort, even at times if such certainty is based upon a sense of knowing everything is pointless.
This is just something I have been thinking of lately.. I wish I had a sense of certainty at times, I wish I knew things were a specific way and that is just how things are.
Meh, I do apologize - my thinking is a bit sloppy at the moment, I am just posting some random thoughts.
