"maybe you could point out a few of my superstitions "
Belief in the supernatural... i.e. a "God"
"As for delusions of grandeur"
The idea that everyone has a "religion" because you do. The idea that you may not really have a handle on the thinking of those others doesn't occur to you. You search for meaning; therefor everyone else does.
...oh, and you're not brainwashed. You came up with that whole "God" thing on your own.
"30 States and about 20 foreign countries and met thousands of people with diverse cultures"
So you feel that:
a. you understand them
b. this is a scientific enough sampling to represent the billions currently here and the 10s of billions that went before?
Again, your assertions are essentially bullschitt. If one doesn't believe in God, then politics is his "religion". What the heck is the matter with you?
