Fret not, Seanieboy 78. We will always have to deal with supernatural beliefs, but information is the enemy of ignorance. For the vast majority of human history, religion has been able to flourish without having to deal with widely available and easily accessed counterpoints. This has only been different for a spec on the timeline of humanity. The web is the ultimate equalizing force as it allows for competition in the marketplace of ideas, a competition that had previously been mostly squelched by religious leaders. They used to burn our books, but they can't burn the internet.
