One thing I’ve noticed is almost always, the same people who are religious also believe in other supernatural or otherwise far-out things, such as ancient aliens, ghosts, conspiracy theories, etc. And it’s not so much WHAT they choose to believe, it’s the METHOD they use to determine what is credible, which in many cases, is faulty. For example, saying: “I believe because lots of others believe,” or “I believe because it’s how I was raised,” or “I believe because some smart people believe.” These are all BAD BAD BAD reasons for believing anything. And yet, they are generally the most common reasons people use.
