Not quite pertinent, but I've always felt that human brain had a built in
hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is the name of the species strategy. The brain is
designed so that different
individuals can hold opposing beliefs, filling different niches. The
species doesn't care who is right or wrong, just so one of them succeeds.
The ultimate hypocrisy!
