I don't understand the people ridiculing this thread.
Do you deny that cults exist? If you acknowledge they do, then wouldn't you agree that they all rely on their ability to brainwash their followers
through various forms of conditioning, brainwashing, and mind control? And if you agree with that, then why is so absurd to believe that twisted
group of bored, wealthy individuals with nothing better to do with their time would come follow occult beliefs?
I don't believe in Satan or follow religion, but I do believe, that there are people who follow a different kind of religion than we are used to and
the teachings are often so twisted they realize they have to keep them secret.
That's not exactly far fetched, is it?
ETA: I think the main disconnect here is the insistence of some to assert that these Occultists somehow have any real mystical or spiritual power over
any of us. This, to me, is the reason why so many scoff at the idea of the existence of secret societies, which makes perfect sense. The only
"power" those who belong to these societies have is the fact they are very exclusive and generally require wealth. This makes it easy for those who
know the right people to get into positions of power ahead of more deserving individuals. Like my fiancee who works for a dairy company in town says,
"It's no coincidence that those who hold the highest positions at my plant also go to the same church together." It's no different.
