I am not an expert on anything. I am especially not an expert in religiosity or how humans form groups to pray to an unidentified being in order to make sense of their lives. I’m not qualified to tell you how to live your life in any capacity. But, I will tell you a few tricks that I have learned over the years to avoid cults. Some of this is from trial and error, some of this is common sense. I’ll let you decide which is which.
