Is discussion of mass psychology, religion, today’s rejection of science by some belongs here?

    I have not had occasion to read or hear much Afrikaans, but from occasional news, if it is relatively close, I usually can extrapolate the gist of the posit. I must admit I am now more fluent in English than Dutch. It's been a long time.
    I came to US via Canada. My immediate family lives in Canada now.

    Judging by the avatar icon, it might have been Xelasnave's more respectable appearing younger brother???

    But, what kind of troll? From the eclectic luggage of the opening post, I couldn't unpack an agenda, though I suspected there was one.
    From the mention - and mischaracterization - of 'political correctness', I had a whiff of something off, but still couldn't identify it.
    I so envy Dr. Toad's nose! (and I've been around - and around - since 1996)

    11 "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:"
    With all due respect, what you have posted so far is very typical of those who venture on the board with something they really wish to express but need to set the stage to eventually express it.

    Even so ... welcome to sciforums and consider that you are not the first nor the last member to do as you appear to be attempting to do. IMO

    It is not that you are a troll but that you are posting with what is perceived as an "evangelistic" ulterior motive which tends to indicate that you may be, aggravating those who are waiting for the "great revelation" of your opinion towards the debate: science vs religion. Perhaps you fail to see the hypocrisy you imply when you title a thread in the way you have and then quote the Bible passage that you chose in such a candid manner? "Strong delusion", Pretending to be something other than what you are, would indeed be one such fraud yes?...

    The forum category that perhaps would be more applicable would be the Comparative Religion is my guess, as this is where your debate about the merits of "religious" dogma whether being traditional religion or scientific dogma and the effects on the masses would be worth undertaking.

    It could be argued that both can be believed with such devotion. yes?

    Regardless if you wished to entertain an honest debate on such a serious topic then perhaps it would be wise to start with honesty and post in a way that declares your personal preference/bias or open mindedness in a way that invites open discussion.

    Suffice to say that Mass psychology - hysteria is a serious global concern regardless of apparent causation. ( social media, globalization etc) IMO
