When the day comes that the people you depended on for your spiritual reinforcment vanish,or lose their belief, will you think that they have gained some sort of understanding?
Or instead will you see it as an invasion by demons taking your friends souls?

But when having discussions on topics recently, people seem to be taking information from more of a reactionary standpoint, then one of critical thought. Books, newspapers, magazines, t.v., cell phones, Internet/Web, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, etc. are all forms of media that we use for information, whether or not it is true or factually based.
We all seem to be reliant on these forms, so much now, for our information that we take for granted what it is we are reading, seeing and ultimately believing.
I have seen threads, even on this site, that haven't one shred of truth to them that can be verified by source or science, yet many cling to these posts like god or aliens had come down and told them personally.
This is something that I didn't see here in 2005 and unfortunately has been getting worse and worse up to now. I see it as a social trend, I could see it at a deliberate attempt of disinformation, but in the end I see it as sad!
