You are incorrect. Indoctrination is to teach a set of rules or beliefs unconditionally. It doesn't require a learner.
An example the media attempting to indoctrinate the masses by broadcasting.
I am not indoctrinated into Christianity.
I chose to believe.
So what is so wrong about people "choosing to be" Muslim or Hindu or Buddhist? Why do you call them "the wrong religion" while they in turn call yours "the wrong religion"?

You obviously cannot see what is crystaldamnclear: You're canceling each other right. When you each say the other is wrong then that renders both of you wrong and both of your beliefs are mooted out.

Conflicting religious beliefs will be one cause of the human race's self-extinction.

And it's really sad that we're letting what's basically a bunch of bullsh!t stories, lies, and gossip be the weapon we made ourselves to take our ownselves out.

Whatever Happened to the Homosapian?

Well, it gossiped itself to death!

<quoted text>You talk about people's brains being pickled - while having the gall to sit here and basically say that mankind can do nothing else but make itself extinct?
Why have belief or faith in anything, then?
It's all for nothing, anyway.
There is just no point.
So I say we speed up the process of our self-extinction.
It's inevitable anyway, right?
We have plenty of weapons and technology to turn this planet into a black ball of radioactive ash.
After all, it's all mankind can do.
It's far too much for us to create a utopia.
We can't do it, so we might as well get our self-extinction over with now.
We have no future.
Not here. For sure.

What? Do you even speak English? Do you have any knowledge of the words with which you posit such meaningless nonsense? Words have meanings for a reason, and you toss them about, ignoring the meanings, changing the definitions for your own pleasure, or to simply deny the fact of the matter. While I may agree with you on portions of politics, or find your opposition meaningless, your blatant misuse of the English language makes my skin crawl each time I encounter one of your posts.
Learn English.
Excuse me, but...

Indoctrinate:
1. To instruct in a body of doctrine or principles.
2. To imbue with a partisan or ideological point of view.

I have never called them the wrong religion. Ever.

In fact, I hardly ever even talk about them.

See above.

No, I'm pretty sure it'll be about money and power.

To what bullshi, lies and gossip are you referring?

Dunno, there's about seven billion of us, so....
Well, it gossiped itself to death!

Nice article about our travel through the galaxy.

Nice and scientific.

Humanity is doomed. We won't survive the environmental changes. Not as humans, anyhow.

Book your reservations now or keep watching Star Trek and dreaming.

None shall be offered, you linguistic buffoon. For what you have posted here opposes your assertion, which was "It doesn't require a learner." Your total lack of language comprehension is equal to that of a third grade student, attempting to learn what the words mean by writing random ones on pages marked with rules for the letters themselves. A poem to you is nothing more than a stanza of rhyme, a stanza of meaningless words thrown together.

While you have your heavy intellectual mask on.

If thoughts and ideas are broadcast via mass media as truths, and there were no dummies to hear them, would it still be indoctrination?

Would they be truths?

Would we have to supply a Topix atheist to make it either one?

Dr. Phil is not a real medical doctor. Unlike that complete and total waste of carbon molecules, I do not claim to be what I am not. Unlike that total waste of hydrogen and oxygen I do not make assumptions based on stereotypes. I gave you the benefit of the doubt, and even tolerated your inconsistencies, even to the extent of being relatively polite to you. However, as I stated before, your lack linguistic capabilities is grating on my nerves. Your pigheadedness is nothing short of astounding in such matters. You cannot accept being corrected, even by your own, but then, your own are unwilling to correct each other in such matters for various reasons and nefarious purposes.

You follow the media? You abide by their words? You are clueless if you do such, for the media lacks both substance and intellectual integrity. What they peddle is what is popular, and nothing more, they make their living by pretending to agree with a particular target audience simply to collect the numerical value that offers them profit. They are in their rights to do so, but the people who place any value on such as them deserve the complete and total lack of education they receive for it.

I got no problem admitting when I'm wrong.

It's you that feels the need to rant and rant to try to manipulate someone into agreeing with you.

Well guess what, I ain't no weak minded fool.
