On Heroes and Cults

This is Ken Wilber's intro to Da Free John's book "Scientific Proof of the Existence of God Will Soon Be Announced by the White House!". I hesitated before posting it here as it's one of the more pro-cult articles I've seen, but I think Wilber makes a good point not only about the genesis of religions but of the acceptance of scientific theories too;

P.S. Wilber later revises his opinion of Da Free John because he thought John's "Crazy Wisdom" school unbalanced and harmful. Nevertheless I'm currently rereading some of the book mentioned above, and IMO he definitely had something.
