This is a question I just don't get it

Poor Semiret, he's foreign and has no idea if he "should laugh about the whole 'only playing music when they are out of ice cream' thing or not." There's also a Far Side cartoon that has had him stumped for almost 20 years.

What don't you understand? What have you politely gone along with whilst internally going WTF?

This may be controversial, and I mean no offence,
but I honestly do not understand why millions of intelligent people throughout the world don't question the religious beliefs that were drummed into them as children.
Is it really too much to just accept (or even consider) the provable theory of evolution over the frankly fantastical creation nonsense?
Is life really not worth living and enjoying for what it is without the concept of an "afterlife" to reward you for your good actions or punish you for your bad ones?
Is it totally beyond some religious zealots to realise that without the social partitions different belief systems have installed societies and communities would be more tolerant of others and many wars and conflicts would never have started?

I mean, I'm all for the positive aspects of religion but in the year 2005 with all the progress we've made would it be so far-fetched to expect people to think for themselves?
