I would say that blind adherence to an unchanging belief is simplistic at best. Either people have not been taught to think critically or they fear a change in underlying worldview.

While religion is a great example, politics is another. Many politicians have been in office for a very a long time (never mind the problem with that issue itself). How many times have you ever heard a politician admit to change his mind on anything given new data? Very rarely. And when they do, they are accused of being wishy-washy at best or a hypocrite at worst. No, they are expected to have the same opinions they held when they got into office 20 or 30 years ago, because by God you should stay true to your beliefs. If people's beliefs don't go through at least some modification over 20 - 30 years of new experiences and new facts (especially as quickly as science and tech moves), well then I find myself speechless.

I am speechless in order to avoid saying, what fucking moron still believes the same exact, unwavering shit over that span of time?

(Was that too harsh?)

Head meet desk.

Based on your description, it sounds like politicians are exactly who we need leading the nation!
