The powerful tribal chief, Aaron, once told Shifu Miao Zhang that "Our tribe's god is very powerful and helps us defeat others. I once threw my staff on the ground and it turned into venomous snakes. Another time, I shook my staff in anger and made all the water in the wells and creeks turn into blood."

Miao Zhang looked at Aaron and softly said, "I've used my cane to dig up roots to feed some hungry children. Fortunately, chief, our gentle gods mostly leave us alone."

Facing a record suicide rate and thousands of veterans seeking treatment for post-traumatic stress, the military has been searching for ways to reduce strains on service members burdened with more than a decade of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The red state voter Fark trope is pretty tired. I'm replacing it with this one:

"Durr neocons. I am SO posting this to the Journolist. How can I shiat on "values" today? [limp wrist wave] Did you hear about the Marine Corp. soldier who lost a leg and wanted to climb a mountain and someone dared call him a 'hero'?! Outrage!! Durr flyover states! Let's go to the airport and spit on some baby killers returning from Bush's war of genocide!

You'd still have the worst medieval Popes without religion, only they'd seek their power from some other organization and be called Kings or El Presidentes instead. What you would probably not have are the Gandhis, MLKs, and Tenzin Gyatsos.

Blaming religion for what cynical, exploitative, dishonest people do with it is broken thinking.

Nothing to see here. Guys from the Corps have been studying Eastern Martial Arts for decades, the whole meditation/oneness thing is part and parcel of all that. Anyone with a hate-on for Eastern religion/philosophy would never take a Judo, Karate or Kempo/Kung Fu class in their lives. It'd be like someone from the KKK spending their vacation going to a New Orleans Jazz festival.

A disciple of another sect once came to the AI Master Drescher as he was eating his morning meal.

"I would like to give you this personality test", said the outsider, "because I want you to be happy."

Drescher took the paper that was offered him and put it into the toaster, saying: "I wish the toaster to be happy, too."

I think that's the best of the AI koans.

A novice was trying to fix a broken Lisp machine by turning the power off and on.

Knight, seeing what the student was doing, spoke sternly: "You cannot fix a machine by just power-cycling it with no understanding of what is going wrong."

Knight turned the machine off and on.

The machine worked.

Fair point. Maybe religious people should take a harder look at their leaders to try and prevent the perversion of their beliefs. I agree completely that an evil person can be evil in any environment that gives them power. We should all be more wary those we give power to, and try to prevent our organizations from becoming havens for those who would use power to harm others.

To be fair, one of the stories of POW abuse I heard was that they fed them natto. Natto is fermented soy beans. It looks like hell, smells like amonia, but it's actually a staple food and has vitamins out the wazoo.

You can't trust everything you hear.

Stuff like this was actually popular at the squad/platoon level for variety after a week of lifting/more standard forms of PT. At first, most people thought it was kind of dumb, but the few people who tried it attested to the level of difficulty and apparent benefit in flexibility, which drew the others like moths to a flame.

And that's the answer to getting Marines to try anything, by the way. Just say it's really hard, but turns you into a total badass.

I'd guess that the relatively low first hand exposure to the actual human effects of their operations would tend to make them a bit less in need of spiritual exploration.
