    I'm reading the section on poisons and I can see why we call it fictional. It's far to cautionary to be truly Bene Gesserit. A Bene Gesserit would understand that they never truly know everything of their situation and would come prepared with abilities to handle any situation they thought probable in the slightest. Also:

    Some religions operate on the probability that there is a god. These religions are extremely vulnerable to exploitation. Catholicism, Judaism, Shinto and the Mormon church are all vulnerable to exploitation methods that take advantage of a lack of faith in a creator.


    I find this extremely jarring given that the religion exploited by Muad'dib and the Missionaria Protectiva before him was a fundamentalist Islam with a living manifestation of God. And finally:

    Put another way, the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

    I didn't know the Donald Rumsfeld was a Bene Gesserit.
