Re: Why can't people give up pre-dispositions?
Nameless, help me understand this, would you provide a concrete example: "There are some cunning people who know this and so they substitute real internal change for artificial external change which redirects your energy to them."
Change is, of course, a great thing, though not always well prepared for, nor as pleasent as desired. I believe the best "change" results from learning, and not limiting one self to a set level of belief.
People can give up pre-dispositions, yet for a variety of reasons most have been taught that being predisposed is an "end of process" option or achievement. As always, it's to do with individual choice and whether or not to choose to "rest on a plateau" or continue to climb and explore.Connecting-to-the-Value-of-Why 2005-2008 ©

It's one factor that can help explain the religiosity gap.
- Sociologists have long observed a gap between the religiosity of men and women.
- A recent study used data from several national surveys to compare religiosity, risk-taking preferences and demographic information among more than 20,000 American adolescents.
