For thousands of years, we built shelters for ourselves to keep out the cold that is our fear of death. These shelters were religions, institutions, social and sexual mores, etc. Now there are people who seek to tear those shelters down because they want everyone to be "rational" and "modern" and see the truth which is obviously that it's cold outside. People who believe that in shedding our traditions, our belief systems, our old ways of life. The thing is, we've all long forgotten just how cold it is outside or why we're even living in shelters at all. And so a lot of us have left our shelters, our identities, to follow these fools. Now we just huddle together with no security, trying to stay warm. What's going to happen to us?

what the fuck is going on in the picture
as the poster above said, rationality is the bane of humanity. we ARE merely animals, and we've chosen to take life into our own hands rather than live by the laws of nature and fair survival alongside other species. we're sick in the head, you see?
>rationality is the bane of humanity
Do you even realize what you said just now? You used rationality to make such a statement. Logic, reason, etc. is part of what distinguishes man from beast. Nature designed us with rationality and I'm damn glad it did. If you believe so strongly the erroneous claims you make, go get a lobotomy and have some doctors scoop out your fuxking frontal lobe so you're nothing more than an unthinking invalid. Why are you so fucking stupid?
Yeah, these helped explain existence, and why things occurred that were difficult to find the causes of (i.e. storms were Zeus/Poseidon rather than moisture and temperature fluctuations moving air rapidly).
We're trying to do that through scientific method these days.
Ethical teaching and enforced laws tend to work better these days.
We have those. Wot?
>social and sexual mores
These have always been subjective, and ever-changing. For example, it was considered a social more in ancient Hellas to wait until a girl had her period before fucking her. These days, we wait until they're of a random age of consent in various countries. Don't get me started on boys.
>"rational and modern"
Behaving in a well-thought out way that is also acceptable in our current societal context is a good thing.
By the way, why are you having nostalgia for those days? If disease or starvation didn't get you, old age at 45+ would. You certainly wouldn't be able to read, much less express your opinion without punishment, and your rights as a human would not exist beyond the mercy of whoever commanded the most soldiers.
Not that today is perfect, but damn I'd prefer to live now.
