It's almost as if they have shut down the higher brain centers-- not unlike someone who is perpetually high or entirely intoxicated.<quoted text>
It's because they don't have this thing in their brain that other people have. It's called "logic".
It's weird, right? Like no matter how much evidence comes up against their religion and how many impossibilities and contradictions their holy books contain, they can't even fathom how anyone couldn't believe in god.
It's a level of brainwashing that is rather disturbing to me.
