I just saw that on FB. I like it.
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by the rulers as useful

Pseudo-scientists, pseudo-mystics,

Looooooooool at Scientology at the center. :rolling:
Which means that to me the offer of certainty, the offer of complete security, the offer of an impermeable faith that can\'t give way, is the offer of something not worth having.

Take the risk of thinking for yourself. Much more happiness, truth, beauty & wisdom, will come to you that way.

I saw that on Facebook this morning. If I commented on it, it would appear in my newsfeed and would offend 3/4 of my Facebook friends so I couldn't. It's hilarious.

I think that there should be an entire section for Conspiracy Theory Bollocks. I see that "Moon Landing Denial" and "Chemtrails" are in there, but there are so many others, including 9/11 Truth, Reptiloids, HAARP, Illuminati/Bilderbergers/Skull & Bones, etc. And now, we even have Newtown Truthers, for crying out loud.

I am surprised the  Grand Daddy bollocks of them all "GOD" is not in it. You can't just play semantics with the trinity, that's three gods. I would have at least placed GOD in capital letters just above "miracles" in the religious bollocks set, or even dead center above Scientology perhaps. What an oversight!!

Alien abductions is also a minor oversight not a serious an oversight as God but it would be a very overcrowded Venn Diagram if we tried to fit all the nonsenses in.

Probably.  Freaks me the hell out and doesn't seem terribly scientific.

And I have a real problem with people who claim that manipulating the body can treat non-musculoskeletal conditions.  It's like buffing a car's hood and claiming that the engine will work better.
