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.”
Norman Mailer on finding god (in his own imagine, no doubt)
"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!
