Some people use those books themselves to justify wrong behaviour. There are self-help books and inspirational books more helpful than the bible, but to each their own I guess.Why do we need a book? Because it codifies what we believe to be the propper way of being.
Some people just get this automatically.
(that's the claim in the verse and yours) I think it is learned in society in the specific culture, culture need these stories to exist.
Some people will justify their own wrong behaviour to themselves, then having a book helps.
Question Riet, I've noticed you can see both sides of the fence in these situations. Regarding how to perceive the world, determinism vs free will, religion vs irreligion. What makes you willingly choose the one side over the other? Example, why would you choose to believe in the bible or in some form of the supernatural rather than be sceptical about it?
