QotD / Taleb on the benefits of religion

Талеб жжот!

Nobody seems to notice that over the millennia religions (all religions) have saved people from death — because it protected them from doctors and “science”. Because of the illusion of control, we feel like “doing something” when facing a problem — “seeing an expert”, etc. If religion is at least neutral then it is a great way to stay out of harms’ way: science, faux-experts, quacks, etc.
