What I was gonna add. Dodgy

Now what am I gonna do? Make stuff up? There must be some part of what we all do that they do differently. Self-analysis, perhaps?

Quote mine for a conjecture, open the conjecture to further scrutiny once we put our spin on it?

Probably they get their info from religious sites, someone mentioned answers in genesis, which is a positively bullshit site. They don't even realize it's propaganda or try to get a different perspective. Once you hear what you want to hear, you stop looking.

Amirite?

It's natural in the sense that any person or organisation wants to protect their own interests. In matters of religion these interests can be political, , financial, social or psychological. Few people/organisations will have the courage/morality of accepting their losses as long as they can save something , even if it takes fraudulent actions to do so.

So as long as there are people around who have need for religion some will have the ambition to organize and regulate it and do what it takes to maintain it and make it grow.
In primitive societies this was the only way apart from military to get power.

Some might do it just for the fun of it.
