It's true, our habits serve to create predictable routines from which we, and those counting on us, feel safe. Habits give us a sense of sameness and solidarity (i.e. holding hands around the camp fire at summer camp, singing ’Kumbaya‘).
It's also true that our habits direct our attention away from a serious examination of the evidence. What is also predictable is a kind of captivity awaiting those who act out of ignorance or anything short of wisdom.
“Therefore my people go into exile for lack of knowledge; their honored men go hungry, and their multitude is parched with thirst (Is 5:13).”
