Beggars Belief
Starbuck [13:45] Comments: 4 []
Belief in gods is one thing. Hell, we're hardwired by evolution to believe in all sorts of things that aren't actually there - it gave meaning to the nonenlightened human "spirit" back when supposition was all there was.

And considering its treated with reverence not ridicule, its no surprise people fall under its spell, whether through direct brainwashing or just the simple osmosis of ideas.

But in the 21st Century United Kingdom, supposedly one of the more rational countries in the world (yeah, right), it beggars belief that .

Not good news; belief in gods will drag us to the dogs (that sounded a helluvalot better in my mind than it looks on the page!)

The general thinking is "Sod the evidence, its written in scripture." Erm, written in scripture by a politician. Hundreds, thousands of years ago.

And don't get me started on Reverend Blair's mission for faith schools.

Next stop - Flat Earth Theory. Can't wait.

It all starts when we're not taught to question...

Sounds like they're upping the mind control drug dosage in the water.

Or maybe the earth really is flat and the drugs are convincing us that it's round...! Curves and balls everywhere man...

[UK Lost Spoiler from E4 First Look]

But since we all just exist in Hurley's mind anyway, what does it matter...

Anyway, back to belief, I was discussing (ranting) with the wife down the pub about belief, politics, religion, and possible explanations for the Fermi Paradox which though seemingly fantastical are actually "relatively" more likely. But with that single sentence I've exhausted myself within this Comment... ABORT.
