Maybe that's because negative thinking is a symptom of illness?

Yes, organic chemistry is a marvelous thing. Neuropsychopharmacology and
pharmacogenomics are fascinating specialities. The blue pill and the red pill
(a la The Matrix) control the chemical processes in human brains very
differently. Nothing mystical about it though. Has to do with hormonal
balances and brain chemistry.

Right! Think positively: We _can_ debunk religiosity!
Useless hypotheses, etc.:
consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, CYC, and ELIZA
Everything that can happen has already happened, not just once,
but an infinite number of times, and will continue to do so forever.
(Everything that can happen = more than anyone can imagine.)
We won't move into a better future until we debunk religiosity, the most
regressive force now operating in society.
