Religion works the same way.

People are dumbfounded by coincidence and chance and are all too willing to attribute it to the supernatural and mysterious. On the other hand you have a "skilled" person who will feed their ignorance to turn a profit or gain their trust.

How can this NOT be evil? The religious are one of the last mass criminals to be prohibited.

"God loves you and tells me he wants you to put a dollar in the hat"

"I'm getting the name frank"
"yes, frank is my dead husband"
"He, he loves you and wants you to be happy"
"Oh, yes thank you"
"thatl' be $10.00"

I don't see any difference and I don't think it is anything other than theft, a clever theft but still it is certainly criminal.

It's apparent that the understanding of this type of evil and it's victims are the reason why atheists are morally superior. Who with a conscience or a functional brain can take part in this!
