Faith is a power tool. Faith is used to get people to think and do what you want. I can think of very few things better tailored to control people and take advantage of people, than faith.

Where does faith’s power come? I don’t think it’s so much in belief itself but, to quote Daniel Dennet, the belief in belief.

If a faith can get itself believed, well that’s all well and good for it. But if it can get itself feared, then its salespeople REALLY have something.
