In another thread, our dear atheist ally Jo made mention of certain thoughts and beliefs being sacred. And that got me curious, as I had never really thought much about the term until that moment. Therefore, this thread.
Pray tell, what exactly makes something "sacred" such that it is put upon a pedestal, beyond question, beyond criticism, beyond reproach, and beyond examination? Seems like a fairly dangerous concept to me, if I am understanding Jo's meaning correctly. Any and all input is welcomed.
