One of many reasons why I hate religion.
Was reading an article about the new "Mega Earth" they discovered and of course, people had to connect it to the bible somehow and make comments about God and what not. Why do they feel like they have to connect events to the bible and preach everywhere. Sometimes I feel like they troll and make stupid comments about religion on scientific posts just to piss people off. Examples below.

They seem to be trying to convince themselves that they're still not crazy.

Well they are not doing too well. Making themselves seem even more crazier.

This.

I think discoveries like the mega Earth introduce cognitive dissonance so their minds immediately go to the subject of religion. Then, true to form, they think "oh yeah... it's God's work... not inconsistent... actually more consistent... yup, that's it" and create posts to validate their thinking with others.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

I often wonder at how scary and stressful life is when you have to validate yourself constantly. With that little voice in the back of your head desperate to avoid anything that might break your already fragile grip on a fairy tale.

That explains it very well.

I couldn't imagine, with an extensive family history of heart disease that stress would probably kill me.

They don't allow Christians at Halloween costume contests because it's not fair to anyone else because they would always win lol
