cognitivedissonance - 2011-04-11 A primitive religion of sorts has grown up, those that return to the wild tell tales of the strange, squishy gods and their dry environments, and their unbelievable magical power of "flipping you lot over".
Some horseshoe crabs disbelieve these tales, and have been made pariahs in the conservative horseshoe crab society.
