Remember the seven cardinal sins? You’re given the serious task of adding a new one to the list – another trait or behavior you find particularly unacceptable, for whatever reason. What’s sin #8 for you? Why?
The sin I would add to the seven cardinal (deadly) sins is self-deception. By definition self-deception (n) is the action or practice of allowing oneself to believe that a false or unvalidated feeling, idea, or situation is true.
A lot of evil can come out of the lack of willingness to understand other people’s perceptions on life. To believe in something that has substantial evidence against can lead to a life of delusion and distrust.
Instead people should accept reality of human nature and work towards a similar goal of technological, economical, and educational progress.
***Sin (n): 1 an immoral act considered to be transgression against divine law. (v): 1 commit a sin.
