"Often those with different mindset are regarded as nuts by rest of the people."
Not that this proves or disproves anything in what we usually call an objective sense, but native american tribes often chose homosexuals or other
deviants from statistical norms, as shamans/medicine-men on the idea, that as they already were somewhat apart from 'standard' they would also be
closer to 'the other' non-standard world.
It was part of their job-description to keep up the 'weirdness' by doing things contrary to cultural norms.
Without going to the unnecessary extreme of misguided inverted 'logic' where insanity=genius, I'm attracted to a situation, where 'nuts' can be
the movers and shakers questioning doctrines (questioning isn't the same as disproving though).
