Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's precisely the reason indeed.

Religious and sexual and vision of the world, and the basic mythology..e verything is indoctrinated.. so there cna be no study because there is no aberration.

On the other ahand doing upon your children something that the rest of the community consideres awful is the starting point of trauma.

It can be sexual or religious (if you teach something that is considered taboo by the rest of the community).

So religious indoctrination would be awful only if society considers it as such and the children react to the general environment as they would react if he would kno he has been violated.

And then we ahve violence of course.. which is an obejtivize language and can be studied.

For that reason Dawkins has not the slitghtest idea he is talking about... religious is standard indoctrination as any other we have in our lifes and maks us what we are... sexual assault enters the realm of doing somehting cosnidered awful and disgusting by the society to your own children which indeed can be studied and finally violence which is a language on its own can also be studied

Violence on sexual assault is the worst kind of nightmare.. and it has nothing to do with the huncreds of nomral indoctrination we receive.. religious included...

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
