Thoughts on religion and such

In the course of a discussion about libertarianism with liveavatar, we got to talking about "religion" in a broader sense as an organizing principle in society. In trying to define the broader sense, we came up with: the set of core beliefs that one holds as axiomatic.

And that got me thinking. I have long believed that, given sufficient logical evidence, I am more willing to change my set of axiomatic beliefs than most people. But I know that that's not always as true as I'd like, and now I'm wondering if that very belief -- that I'm willing to change my axioms -- is simply one of my core axiomatic beliefs...

Not much of a point here, perhaps. But psychological infinite regresses are potentially interesting to ponder. And perhaps I now have to reexamine that axiom.
