    The Wakefield study is a prime example of that.
    The original source of the “link” between vaccines and autism, Dr. Andrew Wakefield performed the study while employed by a law firm that was preparing to launch a class action lawsuit against vaccine manufacturers.
    That’s not even getting into the all but nonexistent test protocols and the doctored results…

    A lot of it can be traced back to the wide-spread introduction of “Stranger Danger” public service announcements and “education” programs, convincing parents and children that there are kidnappers and perverts lurking behind every bush, waiting for an opportunity. This ignores that fact that the vast majority of abductions and molestations are committed by someone the child already knows.
    There was one case of a lost 11-year-old Scout who avoided rescue searchers because he was afraid they wanted to ‘steal him’.

    Note the date on the comic. It was still the Sears Tower when this comic was written.

    It reminds me of one of Jeff Dunham’s routines.
    Two of his dumies are having a conversation in Spanish and he tells them that he feels left out when they do that because he doesn’t speak Spanish. Both dummies do a double take and one of them looks out at the audience and starts singing the Twilight Zone theme.

    For a long time, that was the main tactic of the Church of Scientology. Whenever someone would publicly criticize them the CoS would start launching multiple law suits against them. Even if they lost, the target would eventually go broke from the legal fees, while the CoS had virtually unlimited resources from decades of bilking their usually rich members out of huge amounts of money.

    IQ and average education have been steadily increasing.

    “More harm has been done by people panicked over societal decline than societal decline ever did.”

    “You’re like the religious zealots who are burdened by their superiority with the sad duty of decrying the obvious moral decay of each new generation. And you’re just as wrong.”

    Now that I think about it this reminds me of Henry Kuttner’s short story “Hydra”.
    A man discovers a book that teaches the secrets of astral projection, but the book turns out to be bait in a trap. Anyone using the techniques is eventually drawn to the realm of a Great Old One who dwells on the astral plane, which then devours the traveler.

    It’s possible to critique a depiction of mythology without believing in the myth.
    For example, the depiction of Athena on “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” was inaccurate, portraying her exclusively as a deity of scholars and omitting her role as goddess of war (presumably to avoid overlap with Ares, one of the villains of the show).
    That doesn’t mean that I believe that Athena actually exists.

    Not just the wings. There’s a reason why, when an angel appears to humans, the first thing they usually says is “Be not afraid”. They don’t look remotely human.
    For example, Cherubim (Cherubs) don’t look like winged babies. More like dozens of wings and eyes in a roughly spherical mass.
    Or the Ophanim, which appear as two perpendicular concentric wheels lined with eyes.
