Comment 7 by Serdan : If a large part of the global population is wildly irrational it will inevitably affect you.

Only if they're allowed to be wildly irrational where decisions that affect me are taken. Many of the theists I know admit to the irrationality of their beliefs and would never dream of saying that, because God has spoken to them or inspired them, then any action should be taken regarding any type of public policy.

My goal (just as unattainable as the total disappearance of theism, I might add) is for all theists to be like that.
