Good one. I like many of QualiaSoup's videos. I stole this one, by the way.


Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Shared as well. I thought the summary was well done. I listen to that part a few times now.

It's bad luck to post a comment in a thread with a twelve letter title... taking one for the team here.

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini

First conclusion, superstitions are created and followed by bird brains.


Edit:

I haven't come across QualiaSoup before, that's thanks for the post ThorGoLucky.

edit to correct typo error

There are only two types of religious people, the deceivers and the deceived. SS

What matters is how a person take this information in them. It's up to them to believe or not.
