Is this the appropriate time to start arguing about how you can't hear them fly by in space?

The pilots are making motor and laser noises over the radio. "Zeeeerooooom pew pew pew BROOOOSH."

I was thinking their on-board computers were making the noises to give them some audio feedback as to their surroundings. But the pilots doing it themselves works too.

Minor point:  the Pacific cargo cults were worshiping actual tangible beings; of all the religions on your list, theirs had the best chance of getting what they prayed for...and actually succeeded, in some cases, albeit by accident rather than prayer.


Hey, you know what's better than cargo cults? Ancestor worship.

At least you know the people you worship are real and are directly responsible for your birth.

This post is fair neither to cargo cults, nor to LaVeyan Satansim.

1) Cargo cults were based on actual observed phenomena, unlike other religions, which consist entirely in made up bullsh*t. Maybe the primitive islanders got it wrong, but they sure as hell looked up in the sky and saw giant f*cking birds dropping valuable loot out of the sky. Please don't insult these primitive empiricists by comparing them to other religionists. They had a real foundation for their beliefs.

2) In his Satanic Bible, LaVey admits straight up that his "religion" is bullsh*t, consisting in silly rituals aimed at fooling stupid people into giving away sex and money. He might be prosecuted for fraud, but it's pretty hard to make that case when his "Bible" says straight up there is no God or devil, and that his "spells," if they have any effects at all, have only psychological effects. Please don't insult this honest man by comparing him with the hucksters from other religions who've perpetrated actual fraud on countless millions throughout world history.

It's as historical as Catholicism.  Just because the RCC's made-up stuff is OLD and was written-down for longer doesn't make it any less made up or any more historical than the made-up stuff now or any better than the stuff that had to be pieced back together from what the RCC hadn't burned and purged.

Uh-huh, so because Catholicism is younger (but doesn't have a gap) and because it's ancient traditions are creepier to today's sensibilities than the ancient traditions resurrected by the older (but with a big gap) pagan religions...Catholicism has more gravitas?  And let's be fair here, I'm pretty sure the Romans were creeped out by symbolic cannibalism too.

This is like that time I was trying to get a straight answer out of this guy called "nimbo1" who claimed that Protestants were WRONG because they were new and made-up, but Judaism (which was older) was WRONG because they'd lost their way, somehow.

Mind you this was back during JPII.

Cargo cults shouldn't even place. Yes, they're an extremely strange justification, but at least the phenomenon they're trying to justify actually exists and is observable. That alone puts them above most other groups.

One of the little details I liked in the Mass Effect universe is that they openly talked about how they had audio emulators for space travel for people watching, because people just instinctively expect sound. They just had computers produce the same sounds for space flight that they would have for atmospheric flights so that people would be more comfortable with it, i.e. for exactly the reason that space flight in computer games and movies so often has sound effects. There's a few scenes where one character or the other talks about turning off the audio emulators to watch ships glide by silently.

I enjoyed that little bit of lampshading.

Now, as far as the pope doing miracles, that is part of becoming a real saint on the church. I would not be surprised if he encounters many religious Italians during the day who quite frankly are delusional and waiting for someone to enable their belief.
