← The God issue: New science of religion

Meanwhile, society is gradually learning to live without religion by replicating its success at binding people together.

Yep, binding people into a large number of mutually hostile tribes. Very successful strategy that.

Not.

This is something secularists ought to take seriously. Only by understanding what religion is and is not can we ever hope to move on.

Abrahamic religions, all those tens of thousands of 'em, need to be revealed as what they really are and are not, so that we can bin them all and move on.
