The Power of Belief
My great grandson cut his finger. Not badly, he'll be OK. His father says "It's going to hurt for a while. There's nothing we can do about it."

He comes to me in tears. "Grandpa, it hurts."

"Aw," I say sympathetically. "Would you like a nice placebo?"

"Uh, huh."

So I search the medicine cabinet and find an ointment which I apply to his finger.

"All better now?"

"Uh, huh."

All smiles too. Angel

Humans arrived on Earth on 22 October 4004 B.C. A few of us are still trying to repair the ship.

Religion, wrapped up in a nice neat nutshell. Thumbsup

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Religion is the greatest of all placebos!

Plus side-effects. Worst when you get stuck, already adopting the values at one hand, your rational thinking keeping alarms on at the other hand.

Want something? Then do something.
