while ‘only’ 4 per cent endorsed the notion that ‘shape-shifting reptilian people control our world by taking on human form and gaining power’. (Still a somewhat unnerving 12 million people.)
This, somehow, is more unnerving than something like half a planet believing the clearly deranged and dangerous lunacy that comprises the old and new testaments and qaran? Example: That nailing a guy to a tree absolved the sins of man from all eternity. Now we can do whatever we want so long as we wish for that very same guy to make it okay again then commit an act of cannibalism by drinking the blood and eating the flesh of his 2,000 years dead body.
The lizard aliens in human skin at least have the (remote) possibility of scientific verifiability and examination.
Jesus loves me but he doesn't think much of you.
Eating bits of your enemies is frowned on by most folks these days. Ritualized cannibalism is, however, a sign of being a well brought up and modern person who is a well adjusted, caring member of society.
I was first personally exposed to that practice sometime around 7 or 8 years old and thought it was pretty creepy.
Nailing people to trees, it should be pointed out, has come to be seen as inappropriate in the modern world. Unless, of course, condoned by some official group approved of by the US.
