Reply to earlier message:

Cargo cults are cults that existed/exist mostly in Indonesia and
Australia. These were cults created by the natives in order to explain
the material wealth of the white man. (The natives did not understand
where all the material wealth of the white man comes from, so they
figured it must come from heaven. Therefore they invented certain
rituals which they thought would bring them such wealth also). This is
a pretty sad story all together...
