Superstition and how it hurts humanity, another example.
I was watch a show called "Seconds From Disaster" On the National Geographic Channel.
Now I caught it in the middle so I do not know where this terrorist attack took place, other than it was a region where Hindu's dominate. The suicide bombing killed 200 plus people. In south east Asia.
BUT here is what kills me. Because of the stupid fucking superstition Hindus have that the dead's ghost's spirits must be released by dumping the rubble and remains into the sea. And if they don't do it quickly the dead will haunt the affected blast zone. They wanted bulldozers to move the rubble right after to insure the spirits wouldn't haunt them. If the investigators of the crime had given into their demands, the murderers and collaborators would have gotten away with murdering 200 plus people. However, to the credit of rational people, the investigators convinced the locals to hold off on their ritual so that they could find clues to find the killers.
Yet another reason that superstition should be questioned. I am still as I type this watching the episode, but I am quite sure that, it is detailing the clues and forensics as I watch, the show will conclude with the capture of the collaborators.
These idiots would rather placate their superstition and pretend ghosts exist, that ghosts haunt them, and let murder's go free?
WHAT THE FUCK?
