God damn this is fucked up.

It just goes to show you can make people believe almost anything, given the right conditions.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

It also shows the power of social pressure or the threat of not being accepted as belonging / having social reciprocity withheld. We are intensely social creatures and when our pack instinct is elevated and our individuality repressed, as well as emotion aroused and intellect repressed, things like this are much more likely to happen.
