Norman Mailer thinking for himself

“For instance, my belief in God and the Devil comes, to a good extent, from the fact that the majority of people, through all of recorded time, have believed in both evil spirits and good ones and, finally, in a god and a devil accompanied by angels and demons. If the majority has such beliefs, one does well to keep some respect for such notions.”

"When enough people share a delusion, it loses its status as a psychosis and gets a religious tax exemption instead."
- Ronald de Sousa (author of
Why Think? Evolution and the Rational Mind)

Which still doesn't explain the whole Scientology thing. A famous mass is not a critical mass!
