OMFG!

If you thought that creationist and IDers were bad enough, with their clinging to 2500 year old myths and rejection of a 150+ year old, completely accepted scientific theory, try these idiots on for size.  Yes, they are geocentrists.  People who actually believe that the sun, moon, planets, stars, and galaxies revolve around the earth!  Read that again, I’ll wait.  Have you picked your jaw up off the floor yet?  Good. 

This is a perfect example of how religious belief, or any dogmatic belief for that matter, can warp peoples’ ability to see the world as it is.  In fact, it shows that dogmatic belief is not just weird or wrong, but delusional.  Normally, people who are delusional, people who, say, believe that an invisible dragon lives in their garage, or that fairies are dancing at the bottom of their garden, are sent for psychiatric treatment.  For some reason, when those delusional beliefs are related to religion, they become perfectly acceptable matters of “faith”.  

Here we have a group of people who’s “faith” tells them that, contrary to proven evidence to the contrary, they entire universe revolves around the earth.  Despite all the space probes that been sent to other planets or in orbit around the sun, they believe that the earth is the center of everything.  They are deluded by their “faith” into ignoring, in fact rejecting, reality.

Dogmatic belief, of which all religious beliefs are comprised, lead to delusional states of mind.  While they delusions are usually harmless, such as believing that the earth is the center of the universe, when people make public policy and laws based on their delusions, the results are often dangerous.
