Video raises interesting points


Seth brings up some interesting points. Lets discuss why we as a society can not objectively view ridiculous claims.

Aw man, I didn't realize that Jedi was a legitimate option. I may have to rethink this whole non-religious thing.

Edit: If you read their doctrine it actually makes more sense than most religions. http://www.jedichurch.org/jedi-doctrine.html

It is amazing how people can selectively suspend rational thought. They would never think of turning off their skepticism when buying a car, but when it comes to betting their immortal soul, they just figure their parents must have been right.

I don't know about that. It kind of invites people to distance themselves from their current position and try to get a bigger perspective of things. I shows them that "normal" is often just a cultural viewpoint.
