Nietzsche, Friedrich wrote:134
Now if, as has been said, the Christian has got into the feeling of self­-contempt through certain errors, that is to say through a false, unscientific interpretation of his actions and sensations, he also notices with the highest astonishment that this condition of contempt, the pang of conscience, displeasure in general, does not persist, but that occasionally, there are hours when all this is wafted away from his soul and he again feels free and valiant.
What has happened is that his pleasure in himself, his contentment at his own strength, has, in concert with the weakening which every profound excitation must necessarily undergo, carried off the victory: he loves himself again, he feels it - but precisely this love, this new self-valuation seems to him incredible, he can see in it only the wholly undeserved flowing down of a radiance of mercy from on high. If he earlier believed he saw in every event warnings, menaces, punishments and every sort of sign of divine wrath, he now interprets divine goodness into his experiences: this event appears to him to exhibit kindness, that is like a helpful signpost, a third and especially the whole joyful mood he is in seems to him proof that God is merciful.
If he earlier in a condition of depression interpreted his actions falsely, now he does the same with his experiences; he conceives his mood of consolation as the effect upon him of an external power, the love with which fundamentally he loves himself appears as divine love; that which he calls mercy and the prelude to redemption is in truth self-pardon, self-redemption.

Desperate to preserve his piety, his hope, transformed into right, to eternity, the Judeo-Christian/Muslim man interprets his ego into a universal "truth".
His love, his value, his self, his pleasure, externalized as an idea(l) he can then strive towards.
Selfishness transformed to selflessness; hunger produced by lack, transformed into overflowing abundance, and the maintenance of self, creating excess, transformed into a external overflowing he only wants to be a part of, and to taste, and to attain.

Quotes Vacher10
Vacher de Lapouge, Georges wrote:It is virtually impossible to change by means of education the intellectual type of an individual, however intelligent he may be. Any education will be impotent to provide him with audacity and initiative. It is heredity that decides on his gifts. I was often surprised by the intensity of gregarious spirit amidst the most instructed men…
Each minor manifestation of an independent idea hurts them; they reject a priori everything as pernicious errors that has not been taught to them by their masters.

Quotes Richet10
Charles Richet wrote:Stupidity does not mean that a person has not understood something; rather it means that he behaves as if he did not understand anything. When a person moves headlong toward disaster in order to satisfy his prejudices, his errors, his defective and false reasoning—this is inexcusable.
It is far better to be deprived of intelligence than to make poor use of it.

Quotes Downlo25
Marx, Karl wrote:The Jew has emancipated himself in a Jewish manner, not only because he has acquired financial power, but also because, through him and also apart from him, money has become a world power and the practical Jewish spirit has become the practical spirit of the Christian nations. The Jews have emancipated themselves insofar as the Christians have become Jews.
