And time and time again, I've asked you to post *just one*, of these supposed "lies". Seems to me someone is lying about lying. If you have beef with me, take it to PM. No need to litter the board with your pointless/fact-less posts due to some grudge you may or may not have. And just to throw this in, I guess you mean your backing your posts because "you said so" should be good enough for everyone.
It's natural to fear the unknown(different).
Animals and Humans seek predictable circumstances. Then they can be comfortable and relax.
When something enters that is unknown, our brains secrete adrenaline, dopamines and a host of other enzymes and we're in the fight or flight mode.
That is, until we determine what it is and how we can deal with it.
They key word is... CONTROL.
Though we are not be able to control everything, we try to control what we're exposed to. No surprises. Predictablility of everything around us.
When we can't do that, we get comfortably numb with self medication so that we just don't give a damn what happens.
