> So can anyone explain what is going on?
I think some of what is going on is the expression of fashion and taste. Some
folks just like The Unexplained, Mysteries, X-Files, Twilight Zone, spooky
kind of stuff because of its entertainment value. If religiosity is properly
and finally debunked, then spookiness just won't do, and we're left with
whatever awe-inspiring facets of the universe that real science can provide,
which seems rather dry in comparison.
Useless hypotheses, etc.:
consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, CYC, and ELIZA
We won't move into a better future until we debunk religiosity, the most
regressive force now operating in society.
