RE: Church rituals and ceremonies
I think ritual always contains an element of accepting dominance and ultimately of psychological manipulation that can border on mind control. By accepting that there is a right ritual to perform you displace some of your personal autonomy with the group's way of Thinking and doing. The ritual reinforces the importance of the group over the individual. While this may be beneficial when we are talking about rituals such as complying with software development processes it always involves a displacement of the self and the reinforcement of the group.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
