critical thinking applies to relgious folks too now. someone who is religious also has found what works for them and even tho they may look around, they are for the most part content.
to me this is similar to the notion that when high art films about war or poverty don't do well it's a reflection of society being dumb. when those same dumb people see what the fiilms are about on a daily basis.
don't make me drop confirmation bias before 11am on ya'll...
Believing a religion requires faith not critical thinking or reasoning.
“Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things"- Marin Luther
