Stupidity hits nail on head with beliefs
9 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's different versions of this film. The more recent ones are much better. It's like they realized they were onto something. Anyway, I found the theory of belief systems leading to stupidity to the most convincing. It's true. Religion, politics, preaching, they all make us stupid. The more you believe in something, the more you mind is closed to new truths, this you become an ignoramus. Also, makes point that Bush is stupid, but that the people who call him stupid are stupid too. Which is essentially, the whole thing in a nutshell. Anyway, I'm glad that somebody looked into it. Otherwise, I have every reason to believe we'll keep getting stupider and stupider.
