And this, my friends, is how magazines troll for readers. "Religion is what made us what we are today! For proof, pay us and register."

Thanks. Usually, those ads are in the back of the magazine, or showing late at night on TV.

I guess I should feel thankful religion brought us out of the Stone Age - that opened the door for tossing religion into the trash and trusting in solid results instead, the huge leap forward we started with the Enlightenment, after a stagnation period of centuries under theocracies. But I guess pouring huge resources into the vague and dodgy promises of churches was beneficial in some way, like losing money on a scam is.
