Interesting, when you compare it to ET's books.

This information was presented in a social psychology class I took in college many years ago. It sounds like the ego to me. Nothing new here it seems, unless I am missing something. :)

It´s not that hard to admitt that you are wrong atall. Some people have been conditioned to think that everything written in the bible has to be taken litterally and therefore are having a hard time accepting when they are wrong for example.

Thanks for posting Carl. I enjoyed reading the excerpt from the book and even sent it to several friends. The story about the cult and Dec. 21 really illustrates just how far the mind will go to justify its decisions regardless of their rationality.
