This is what generations of religious brainwashing does to people, as KRKBAB says in Comment 14. They can't even fathom the ridiculousness of what they are saying. They really believe that if they don't mutter the phrases they have had pounded into them, they will suffer in an afterlife. Why did 900 people kill themselves in Guyana? Because their "god," Jim Jones, said so. That was more than enough so as to avoid a painful afterlife that their leader said awaited them if they disobeyed.
