Dogged Religiosity

When the ancient Mayans were faced with a century-long drought, they had only one way to deal with it — human sacrifice. Of course, sacrifices had no effect, but that did not deter them from escalating the intensity of the sacrifices. They refused to look for alternative solutions. The is one more example of how religion makes people terminally stupid.
