  •  Creating Social Reality (0+ / 0-)

    I added a video on the bottom of the post about the psychology of creating "Social Reality."  It explains a lot about the phenomena created long ago and how it is still present today.  I call it "how we push each others buttons."

    As far as guys believing in monsters being allowed to vote many in Congress believe the Earth is 6,000-10,000 years old and that a snake actually talked in the Garden of Eden.  isn't this comparable?  

    I'll give you a clue as to the motivation behind the current trend in "Bible Literalism."  

    If we see Adam & Even in the Garden of Eden story metaphorically rather than literally then we dismantle the Original Sin argument entirely.  If it is only a story then it didn't really happen.  Without original sin there is no need for a savior to die for our sin and no Christianity.  Thus the reason to double down on the irrational.
