Preachers and politicians appeal to the emotional sides of people. Scientists appeal to the thought side of humans. Since life is mainly about struggling, suffering, reproducing, and dying, man seeks escape from the pain of this reality. That's where religion, drugs, and any other diversion finds value to humans.

We can be described by our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Most people aren't capable of critical thinking. That's why politics, religion, and marketing work so well.
