A hypnotized spread

Thousand years ago , according to paganism and old magic some treatments stated the methods of purification or recovery to be the transmission of disease into another person.
usually the methods have some steps of : put a coin in a tissue and throw it in the middle of 4 crossing roads , then the one who gonna open it will absorb the disease from your body.

The same belief was applied at the days of plague , and it was number one cause of spread.
the myth assured that transmitting the plague into another one will cure the patient.
And people reacted to infection the way rats submitted to flea controlling and spread the plague .

As said Richard Dawkins in his book "The selfish gene" about memes and Darrel W. Ray about mental viruses , the parasite controls the host and use him to reproduce.
so as , if  magic is an idea then its founder use all his followers to spread his idea by making others believe in it , i.e. by infecting them with his idea .

We can count as many parasitic ideas as we can in politics , sociology , psychology..
once someone with a representative ability promote an idea that idea gain followers whom work as preacher to that idea.
Religion , and mainly the 3 Abrahamic religions have a rooted component within its structure which is:  preaching .
for example , in Islam the sins are gone by eliminating them with the good deeds and the most valuable goodness is to guide an apostate to Islam .
" you are saved by saving another soul from hell "
As if its a sin transmission , or a curse exile .
But is religious ideas and religion a disease or a curse that is better to be transmitted ?

Nowadays ,and  thanks to the scientific rescue we are able to prove the false hypothesis of transmitting plague infection to self cure and so as many treatments of infectious diseases .
We are able to prove such hypothesis because they are materialized , possible to test , experiment and discuss since we can see viruses and bacteria using microscopes or diagnose certain infection but what about someone imagination ? About someone metaphysical illustration ?
How can we diagnose or measure someone illusion , belief or hallucination ? or even criticize or talk about it?
