What Charles Miller is that the ability to hold irrational opinions is taught at an early age by a large number of schools in the states. That whole Creationism thing just cracks me up every time I hear somebody mention it (God given right Charles? What were you thinking when you wrote that!). To answer Lonita in the comments who mentions the right to bear arms, that’s an irrational belief as well. My understanding is that you get to keep and bear arms in order to be able to defend yourself from the tyranny of the government; now, is that really a practical attitude to take in an age where arms capable of doing this must, of necessity, include tanks, aircraft, chemical and biological agents and so on?
