Essays on cults

It has been said that simply by studying or even just reading some of these myths, people can learn how to control their actions or at least think better of what they do. After all, a lot of these stories tell tales of how human follies, stupidity, and even hubris get people in trouble. In a sense, these myths serve as a warning for people on how they should and should not be. The irony of the situation is that most people still tend to go with their follies, choose to make stupid decisions, and have hubris. It is almost comical how these myths capture human behavior in the ancient times that are still alive and kicking today.

On March 17, 2000, 778 members of the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God died in Uganda. [32] The theory that all of the members died in a mass suicide was changed to mass murder when decomposing bodies were discovered in pits with signs of strangulation while others had stab wounds. [33] The group had diverged from the Roman Catholic Church in order to emphasize apocalypticism and alleged Marian apparitions . [34] The group had been called an inward-looking movement that wore matching uniforms and restricted their speech to avoid saying anything dishonest or sinful. [35] [36] On the suicide itself locals said they held a party at which 70 crates of soft drinks and three bulls were consumed. [37] This version of events has been criticized, most notably by Irving Hexham , [38] and a Ugandan source states that even today "no one can really explain the whys, hows, whats, where, when, etcetera."
