    •  Yup. Mass suicide over religious beliefs... (0+ / 0-)

      ... is a prime example of what I'm talking about.

      I never understood that either.  After thinking about it for a very long time, I had to console myself with the thought that at least these poor, deranged individuals took themselves out of the gene pool.  Their children certainly didn't deserve the fate of the adults, but..., if any were old enough to actually believe (be brainwashed) into the cult, maybe it saved us all from more idiocy being inflicted on us after their deaths.

      I believe each person must be taught to think for themselves, not be indoctrinated into a specific group-think which is what religious crowd brainwashing exemplifies, altho it can also be applied to political group-think (i.e., politicos & media after Dumbya and Dickie mentioned war after 9/11).

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
