Question for consideration...

Recommended Posts

Well, if you take counsel with God, I'd say that's pretty reliable. As far as spiritual advisors, while they certainly have extensive knowledge of their respective religion, the problem lies in their human tendencies (meaning they pretty much always build the advice in {insert Holy Text here} around their agenda, rather than building their agenda around the written word of God).



One person's interpretation of waht God is saying can be completely different than another persons.



And every religion interprets whatever holy text they believe in to meet their own personal agenda.

Yes, you just paraphrased what I said.

How do you feel about political leaders turning to psuedo-science for advice?


As long as they don't blindly follow the advice, I have no problem with it. Same thing with religion. As long as they don't blindly follow, i don't care. Everybody needs advice sometimes, and everyone has the capability of giving good advice. Heck, most of the time, psychics and such don't really give advice but help you realize what you want to do. Works very similar to prayer.

Either way, at least is isn't as bad as Caligula.

But aren't they going to bad sources? I mean, it's like going to McDondalds for tacos. It's not really relevant to the matter at hand. Don't they have a whole crew of specialists in their cabinet to turn to, or to even consider, "Hey, what's best for the people?" than to turn to something where you either don't get results, or you could have arrived at on your own anyways?

Aside from the potential moral reprocussions of clairvoyant advice for politcal figures, in a free country you can do as you please, and if psychics are your thing then the government of a free country cant do anything about it.

Well, they do technically work for us. Who's to say we can't say it's bulls*** and find a way to get more informed sources than hoodoo as reference for our leaders?

Granted, it does fall on the people's shoulders for electing a nut.
