For those of you who have seen a good number of my posts I suspect that you would probably conclude this, but; I don't believe in anything magical, spirits, superstitions, gods (that's a given), demons, astrology or whatever other woo beliefs are out there. In fact, the only difference between myself and one who takes the entire philosophical naturalism position is that I don't make this explicit assertion: "there is nothing outside of the natural world " although I don't believe that there is.
I promote science education, critical thinking and scepticism on a daily basis so I tend to seek out silliness where I can find it that I may be well-informed about the crazy things that people actually believe. By doing this I continue to improve my skills at combating bad ideas and untrue beliefs.
The funny thing is: that everytime I think I found the most ridiculous belief that exists, some time later I find something even more ridiculous.
There are people who don't believe airplanes exist, for instance ,they think they are sky demons. And the flat earth people, and the synthetic moon people, the spirit science, etc... And each time it seems to get more and more into the realm of science fiction and fantasy. Almost like there is some sort of twisted gullibility contest circling the globe.
I sort of just want to get to the bottom. If only for laughs...
What are the most preposterous, ludicrous and wacky beliefs that you guys have ever heard of apart from the mainstream religious horseshittery? I'd be curious to know just how far the rabbit hole goes.
