PSYCHOLOGY OF CHAIN LETTERS REVEALS THE TRUTH ABOUT CHRISTIANS AND THEIR BLIND ACCEPTANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
An important study conducted in the late 1960's reveals that claims made in a superstitious chain-letter, were consciously feared by 83% of test subject, of all age ranges. Here are the most powerful psychological components:

1. A writing which claims to be true sometimes on god's own word.

2. Passages which urge the reader that they will find the truth "deep down within themselves." (classic brainwashing)

3. Claiming that belief in the letter will bring unlimited fortune, and that disbelief in the letter will bring inexplicable torture. (heaven & hell)

4. Claiming that the letter has supernatural power, and has taken and saved countless individuals before with narrative examples.

5. Claims of the infallibility of the letter.


Now, my question for Christians, is that, it seems that a chain letter has the EXACT SAME qualities as the bible, as each of them pull believers towards themselves with their claimed authenticity.

How would you explain to a non-believer that the bible is anything other than an extended chain letter, if they both have exactly the same qualities, and are to a rational mind totally unbelievable?


Thanks, I really appreciate anyone's input...

not all Christians forward chain letters....like myself, if it isn't OF God then it doesn't matter, chain letters are NOT of God.

they are no different than those stupid ones that say if you don't forward to 10 people within such & such amount of time that a close member or your child will die.....those are sick jokes!

that is so off the point, dude... The point is that chain letters use the EXACT SAME PSYCHOLOGICAL TECHNIQUES to garner supporters as holy texts...

The bible, the Koran, The Bagavad Ghita all employ the same psychology to the letter.

Here's a new question that I would like Christians to answer if they feel:

Let's say that HYPOTHETICALLY, the bible was all just superstitious B.S.. Would you doubt that it could have become just as popular as it is now?

Think about Islam, Buddhism, the other "false religions" before you answer this question.

Think this asshole-
Evidence for Survival After Death Index


(1) People have NDEs while they are brain dead.
(2) Out-of-body perception during NDEs have been verified.
(3) People born blind can see during an NDE.
(4) NDEs demonstrate the return of consciousness from death.
(5) The NDE study by Raymond Moody has been replicated.

(7) NDEs can be considered to be an objective experience.
(8) NDEs have been validated in scientific studies.
(9) Out-of-body experiences (OBEs) have been validated in scientific studies.
(10) Autoscopy during NDEs have been validated in scientific studies.
(11) A transcendental "sixth sense" of the human mind has been found.
(12) NDEs support the "holonomic" theory of consciousness.
(13) The expansion of consciousness reported in NDEs supports consciousness theories.
(14) The brain's connection to a greater power has been validated by indisputable scientific facts.
(15) The replication of NDEs using hallucinogenic drugs satisfies the scientific method.
(16) NDEs are different from hallucinations.
(17) The replication of NDEs using a variety of triggers satisfies the scientific method.
(18) Apparitions of the deceased have been induced under scientific controls.
(19) People having NDEs have brought back scientific discoveries.
(20) NDEs have advanced the field of medical science.
(21) NDEs have advanced the field of psychology.
(22) NDEs correspond to the "quirky" principles found in quantum physics.
(23) The transcendental nature of human consciousness during NDEs corresponds to principles found in quantum physics.

(28) Groups of dying people can share the same NDE.
(29) Experiencers are convinced the NDE is an afterlife experience.
(30) The NDEs of children are remarkably similar to adult NDEs.
(31) Experiencers of NDEs are profoundly changed in ways that cannot occur from hallucinations and dreams.
(32) NDEs cannot be explained merely by brain chemistry alone.
(33) NDEs have been reported by people since the dawn of recorded history.
(34) The skeptical "dying brain" theory of NDEs has serious flaws.
(35) Skeptical arguments against the NDE "survival theory" are not valid.
(36) The burden of proof has shifted to the skeptics of the survival theory.
(37) Other anomalous phenomena supports the survival theory.
(38) NDEs support the existence of reincarnation.
(39) The scientific evidence supporting reincarnation also supports the survival theory.
(40) Xenoglossy supports reincarnation and the survival theory.
(41) Past-life regression supports reincarnation and the survival theory.
(42) Contact with "the deceased" has occurred under scientific controls.
(43) After-death communications have been reported by credible people.
(44) Dream research supports the NDE and survival theory.
(45) Deathbed visions support the NDE and survival theory.
(46) Remote viewing supports the NDE and survival theory.

Wow, I can tell by the emotional charge of these posts that my point has not been lost.

I must have hit a sore spot, and I'm sure these words will resonate with you, I hope they save some of you from blind superstition in the future.


As for being an atheist, I'm not by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I had an NDE in April of 2004. My own perception is that God is the most natural and true presence in the life of every creature, including the "atheist" who you claim will go to hell.

However, that doesn't keep religion (particularly western) from being a poisonous lie, in fact it advances this theory. God is home, there is no hell, there is no heaven...

And belief is a prison.

Islam and Christianity start from about the same place and split at Isaac and Ishmael. Same GOD at one time. That makes up 54% of the worlds population. Thats not counting the Jews who also have the same GOD. 16% are non believers and the balance is whatever. So 54% of 84% who believe in a GOD belived in the same GOD it just got messed up at one point. But then we humans mess everything up. We are good at that and then we blame GOD.

Huh? Who is blaming god? Lemme tell you , the split between Christianity and Islam is much deeper than you think.

Most Christians and Islamics would tell you that the other religion was misled and is no longer worshipping god. (the same answer, unsurprisingly)

Re: PSYCHOLOGY OF CHAIN LETTERS REVEALS THE TRUTH ABOUT CHRISTIANS AND THEIR BLIND ACCEPTANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can see where you are coming from. But with chain letters there is a selfish fear that blackmails you into obeyance.
With a non-literal interpretation of the Bible(at least) there is no fear for all is God or Good. By understanding that
God is energy, that there is no separation, then all acts are within accordance with Gods will.
The chain-letter is a device dreamt up by bored but creative individuals that have seen too many horror flicks. They operate on fear and want of the reader. Base emotions. Whereas true spirituality wants for nothing, fears nothing.
It is man's base emotions that create wars in the name of beliefs and brings dogma, to organize those beliefs in order to control.
Not sure if this is a coherent response to the question. At least it is not a flipped out one!
