← So what's the goal with theism?

I think too much attention is given to theism. All superstition should be eradicated and the pursuit of rationality should take its place.

Comment 6 by elisa_fdm :

Take religion out of schools, hospitals and courts of law. That would be my end goal.

I don't personally have a problem with whatever crazy beliefs people may hold in the privacy of their own brains (or privately owned buildings). People have a right to find comfort and spiritual satisfaction in whatever way they wish. But if those beliefs are carried forward and pedalled through political organisations which influence people's lives outside of their brains (or privately owned churches) then it becomes a problem.

If a large part of the global population is wildly irrational it will inevitably affect you.
