The human mind is capable of logic and analysis but applying these is a choice which must be adhered to with effort.

It is unnerving to observe the ease with which almost anyone has areas in which they might delude themselves into giving credibility to the least supportable assertions or shamelessly discountable lies, when delivered with sufficient "show" of conviction by a charismatic person. Similarly insidious, is when they are attributed to timeworn texts of murky origin.

Unexamined, reverential loyalty is nearly impossible to displace from without, as it is not founded on facts. As such, it is impervious to the clearest evidence of its own inconsistency with proveable facts. Moreover, “beliefs” that are disconnected from reality seem most prone to sparking anger, even violence, when challenged.
