We had some very interesting conversations in the Book Club yesterday. First, we talked about vampire bats!!!! Eek!!! Are they real?? Not everyone believed they exist….but they DO!!
Take a look at the video by following this link:
**Warning parts of the video are a bit gruesome***
We also discussed cultural values that we believe as strange, such as people drinking blood. The general idea amongst the group was that people who engage in this practice need psychological treatment. This is a great example of needing to step outside of our own cultural beliefs and examine others. Yes, we think that this is strange (and gross) but if a whole group of people have this cultural belief, should we be more accepting? If we think of our lives, of our customs, do you think others would call us strange? How would that make us feel?
Please share your thoughts/feelings :=)
