My sister had a religion report she had to do for school the other day. She and her partner chose to do their report on spiritualism. She said others in her class did Church of Christ, Judaism, Islam, the usual stuff. So, when it came time to present their report, she said that the people in her class asked, "Well, how do you know?" and said that, actually, "it's just a trick of your mind."

Is that so? So why is it that people can apply that logic to other people's religions (wrong religions), but cannot or choose not to apply it to their own religion (the right religion). Makes no sense, man. If my sister had asked them the same thing about their Church of Christ, would they have been offended?

The belief systems that survive tend to have an "immune system" that rejects threats.
