the end is nigh 2!!!
RE: the end is nigh 2!!!
LOL, Drich still thinks that Jesus will come the 2nd time! When everyone knows Jesus already came 2nd time and already went back where he came from.

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

LOL, I wonder how an evil psychological experiment on a crank would fare; give the crank sufficient "evidence" they require for their ridiculous claim (e.g. orgone energy) and see how they react when it is shown to be just an artifact of their own convictions, beyond any doubt.

Would their minds melt?

I remember an instance in the very serious documentary Behind the Curve on Netflix, where some genuinely curious flat-earthers devised experiments in attempts to disprove, if I remember correctly, "the spheroid hypothesis" of Earth. First by using a gyrocompass and 2nd by laser measurement ... both independently proving a curvature of Earth, giving convincing evidence that a 24 hour day is a full spin of the Earth on its axis, which can only be explained as a spheroid with an inertial spin.

The documentary has 2 simple layers. The obvious one being the theories and beliefs of the flat-earthers being presented in the documentary, and the 2nd how their beliefs were formed in the first place. For some reason, that I don't quite get myself, is that conspiracy beliefs are enticing.

The primary utility of conspiracy theories, god in the sky being the grandaddy of all of them, is the comfort they offer the afflicted in a complex and seemingly chaotic world.
