I don't understand the draw at all. I remember feeling quite relieved when I realized it was all BS and the itinerary was wiped clean of all the silly stuff I was expected to do. Why anyone would really want to have their entire existence mapped out for them and gleefully adhere to someone else's arbitrary rule system is beyond me.
My stepfather has a masters in nuclear science and still believes that radiocarbon dating is flawed enough to be completely unreliable . The man understands the science on about 10 levels higher than I can yet he dismisses the whole concept based on willful adherence to what 1 book says. That's a special kind of nagging, persistent ignorance that I remember myself, and will never miss.
