Do you think #Zeitgeist is a good example of effective but not credible arguments? http://mys.tc/2ma

Sander van der Linden, in a Scientific American post, reviews the environment of #conspiracytheories  and #psychology detailing the correlates with adhering to the conspiracist world-view as: believing in other contradictory conspiracies; "higher-order beliefs" (such as general distrust of authority);  rejection of mainstream #science; and disengagement from society and politics, which they attribute (to some degree) to "fundamental attribution error," where people are biased towards seeing most events as intentional. 

Sander makes an interesting point about conspiracy memes and culture, softening the negative correlates in the article:

"Yet, such pathological explanations have proven to be widely insufficient because conspiracy theories are not just the implausible visions of a paranoid minority. For example, a national poll released just this month reports that 37 percent of Americans believe that global warming is a hoax, 21 percent think that the US government is covering up evidence of alien existence and 28 percent believe a secret elite power with a globalist agenda is conspiring to rule the world."

This ties in with my recent paper on psychological religious disorders [http://mys.tc/2m4], where I found that clinicians could only diagnose belief as delusion if it wasn't one “…ordinarily accepted by other members of the individual's culture or subculture (e.g., it is not an article of religious faith).” 

Interesting read. Check it out: http://mys.tc/2m7

The #royalbaby   will be raised in a castle, under a microscope, whereas most American babies will be raised in tract housing, under a satellite. #nsa

Sry for any delays in visiting MysticPolitics.com as there is a low-brow attempt to take it down in progress.

Religion is part of a culture.  Religious leaders emerge just like warrior leaders or money leaders.

In what the FBI's lawyers call the "going dark" problem, they claim without mandatory "wiretapping backdoors" the FBI would be forced to shut down investigations, with proposals for "...a kind of digital-age wiretap that could read, for instance, Facebook messages or Gchats."

Uncover the Faiths and Religions behind Politics and Conspiracies!
Introduction
@MysticPolitics |  Uncover the Faiths and Religions behind Politics and Conspiracies!

Mystic Politics mission is to instigate debate on politics, religion, and science towards a more informed society.

Our goal is increasing the authority of alternative media and citizen journalism, to change the geopolitical narrative and the way in which you see the world.

We hand-pick every article and video republished on the site to spotlight political corruption, government conspiracies, religion and politics, and the dichotomy of science and faith.

Mystic Politics is designed to ease you in filtering out the noise of mainstream media, and putting these topics in an easily readable/shareable format on any of your devices. http://mysticpolitics.com/
