I think he meant spiritual or religious (i.e. superstitious) beliefs.<quoted text>
I did sit back and reexamine my beliefs. I read the bible and realized that no loving god would be that evil.
It seems to me that when religionists use the word belief it is not belief in the general sense, as in "I believe this because and to this extent". They seem to mean that one consciously chooses to believe one thing instead of another. Also, religious belief is not a belief limited to the extent it is clearly supported by reason and evidence. It tends to be disproportionate or even absolute 'faith'.
