Post hoc and faith
1 : relating to or being the fallacy of arguing from temporal sequence to a causal relation
All faith is a post hoc fallacy, where "faith" connects unconnected events. We prayed, and God saved us. He survived the car accident; it was a miracle.
Add to this supernatural belief, which is not rational: "He lived a good life, so he's going to heaven instead of hell." Sympathetic lies to address an emotional vacuum.
Life, God, and existence do not care about human foibles. We act in the dark, we are responsible only to ourselves, and there will never be a Judgment.
Taking these as our principles, we can better manage humanity and Earth: rationally.
