A Quote by John Gile on rationalizations, beliefs, and god

Our philosophies of life
     often evolve from our way of life
           and not vice-versa.
In outher words,
     our philosophies of life
           are often mere rationalizations
                  for our behavior.
Rather than examining our beliefs
     and thinking about what we should be doing.
we do what we feel like doing
     and then put our minds to work,
            like defense attorneys
                   to come up with a good case for us.
