18. Here's one reason....
Science tells us that the mind is essentially powerless when it comes to affecting exterior events. It goes so far as to suggest that it cannot even affect interiorbodily functions that are already governed by accepted medical theory or practise. Inoculate or die they say.
But don't misunderstand me...I do have faith in a science. The only one with any validity is sociology. It explains how groups of people will believe almost anything in order to be part of the group or to be accepted socially.
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to see how living in this culture is dependant on accepting specific rules regardless of their validity in your personal value system. Religious 'theism' has as little relevance to me as does the marketing of disease and human fraility.
Basic or advanced education is all about learning rules. No institution will teach an individual how to subvert its' own rules. Religions don't teach spiritualism and science doesn't actually teach how things work as much as it relies on promoting acceptable explanations that fit the general principle of the impotence of the human conciousness.
You may even suggest that this compliance is justified otherwise there would be global anarchy and the inherant evil of mankind would kill us all...
This, of course is just more institutional groupthink, promoted by the most insidiuos of all institutions that deny the basic worth of humankind, the church.
