I was hoping for an expose on why astronomers pursue the big bang model and the how the media asserts this model as reality, in contradiction to every prediction and observation going on decades and the ad hoc solutions to save the theory that defy all comin sense and violate basic scientific principles (dark matter/energy e.g.). It’s coherence with biblical creation myth is no doubt a big part of it. Interesting piece though.
Ron this is pretty thought provoking, and one could question whether many congregative activities, such as organised prayer, reinforces this ; indeed one can even think that political rallies infuse the partisan with enough ‘charge’ to act for the ‘common shared mind’, for a period of time, until the next recharge.
So yes I can certainly see that this theory of yours, as applied to the current political situation is likely quite a powerful model.
(p.s. A somewhat micro-level observation: in my own hiring practices, I deliberately assign a larger hurdle for my co-ethnics, to prevent precisely the undesirable outcome of tribalism for a job that simply requires a high level of cognitive ability.
