Ignoring the point as to whether it is possible for two worldviews to be completely inconsistent, the solution is to switch worldviews depending on the circumstances and the goal.

I thought a lot about this the last few days and I like this statement. The more I think about it, the more I am sure that no person has a single consistent worldview. I don't even think it is possible anymore - We all operate with many views and let our emotions decide which to use at what time to achieve a goal. Multiple inconsistent worldviews would be the norm in this case. Prof. Tim said it right a few days ago, I don't have the message so ill paraphrase

"Knowing and that the views are inconsistent and choosing which to use is the difference" (I hope that is not too far off)
