  •  Sure, but the practices reflect beliefs (0+ / 0-)

    the beliefs reflect ideas about what is right and proper.

    For example let me ask why the practices related to prayer are as concerned as they are with the time of prayer, with the entire community going through the same motions at the same time relative to the position of the sun.

    I can see that religious practices measure, weigh and judge, behavior in much the same manner as contracts define property.

    Why are the practices not to be viewed as illustrative of the properties of beliefs?
