Shit Happened Because Of The TV Show You Watched

Religion is, among other things, a side-effect of the way that parents exploit the great truth that Shit Happens for the purpose of controlling their children. That is, whenever Shit Happens to the child, the parents may attribute it to some act or wish on the child’s part that was inconvenient to them, however tenuous or even non-existent the causal connection. You were knocked off your bike yesterday because you made a fuss about going to the circus last month. If badly done, this practice can provoke rebellion; but if well done it produces an adult who dares not do what he wants in case terrible things happen to him.
