All religions are cults
Technically yes, but it's still nice to keep a distinction between "sane religion" and "insane religion" for the purpose of convenience. In the same way that humans are animals, but nevertheless we distinguish ourselves from them for convenience in debate. Let us say that Western religion is cult like, and Scientology, The Branch, etc, are "true cults"- religions whose practices are so distinct from typical worship they cannot really be called "religion".
I studied Hitler and WW2 very deeply and the fact is Hitler was just as Christian as an American Evengelical.
That's a bold claim on a dubious topic.
I would like to hear evidence for this beyond He said in Mein Kampf blah blah blah. Religion is a powerful tool, and a man as smart as Hitler would have known that pretending to be Christian would have netted him key support. Futher, Hitler did not support Catholic or Protestants, he supported his own church that eliminated the gospels and Jewish origin.
To be honest, if I may have permission to make up a word here, I'd say Hitler was a Christo-Nazi. A believer in an unorthodox, probably Aryan Christ who merged vague concepts of Christanity with Nazi doctrine. And to me, "Christo-Nazism" would be a cult (a true cult, as I made the point earlier).
Well, I tried. I guess I should just kill myself now, seeing as the one thing in my life which would give me any meaning whatsoever has now been taken, rendering my life's endeavours fruitless.
(This is the part where you give me a sympathy upvote, it's like a virtual pat on the head.)
I know a gamete is a cell, but 1 gamete + 1 gamete = 2 gametes, ie, a clump. With humans, 50 trillion diploid cells all combined are a clump, but each one is of course not a clump.
On second thought, maybe you need more than two to be a clump, eliminating zygotes mostly (and even then they have a single cell stage, if a very small one).
Fuck I dunno, why don't we just give it a unique name? Like Trevor or something. So human life would be
Single cell ------------------------> Trevor ------------------------------> Multi cell.
I like it ;)
