    Sorry if this is a repost

    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.

    Does anyone here feel that placebos are never effective and a waste of time and money? Asking for a friend.

    Did you know the swastika is a 12000 yr old symbol the Nazis took for their own ?

    And you probably won't be suprised that the Nazis were into yoga

    If it works to make you better, it's working. My MIL was a STRONG believer. Personal miracles after praying to the saints and the whole 9 yards. 97 years old, left a card game to go to the hospital and died 2 days later. In death, all of the wrinkles in her face disappeared and her face looked like she was 30. Guess it worked for her.

    A bit of humility serves both sides well. You don't have to reconcile everything and roasting failures is fine. Zappa had a good point about the herd vs. zealots.

    Non-believer. I hear your stories and I don’t believe them.

    It’s all rainmaking:
    If it rains, you were right to pay the rainmaker.
    If it doesn’t rain, you didn’t pay the rainmaker enough, pay more until it rains.

    Either way, rainmaker gets a comfy house and a Cadillac for being smarter than the dumb animals he controls.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cargo_cult

    A cargo cult is a belief system among members of a relatively undeveloped society in which adherents practice superstitious rituals hoping to bring modern goods supplied by a more technologically advanced society. These cults, millenarian in nature, were first described in Melanesia in the wake of contact with advanced Western cultures. The name derives from the belief which began among Melanesians in the late 19th and early 20th centuries that various ritualistic acts such as the building of an airplane runway will result in the appearance of material wealth, particularly highly desirable Western goods (i.e., "cargo"), via Western airplanes.

    it's not the same. faith in god and no faith in god is that I know there is no god. that's it. I don't believe. I have no faith in not believing in faith. it's not a matter of faith.

    I believe XXXer is on the ball with the Church of the Clearance Sale. Not to the point of going full cargo cult & ritualizing prior to sale events, but definitely in terms of waiting for and observing them. Got a $100 cotopaxi bag for TEN DOLLAIRS this spring and not looking back.

    thats right man don't jump at the prices too early wait for your price, that is real faith that you can literaly take to the bank and I don't camp out for sales or nothing, just aware of whats goin on

    I always wonder how religion became a thing? 10,000 years ago I could see my self making shit and of course repairing things with aqua seal but i think my mind would just be empty of the big questions
