← So what's the goal with theism?

I had to laugh when OP mentioned prisons and mental hospitals for theists! Nobody is suggesting anything like that. I disagree with those who say religion will never disppear. I'm optimistic that eventually it will. Given everything we now know about our world and the cosmos, there simply isn't any reason to believe in Gods. Aided by the power of global communication and knowledge-sharing, the end of faith seems inevitable. As an analogy, I was watching "Guess who's coming to dinnner?" on TV the other day and it was amazing that only 45 years ago a mixed-race marriage was seen as shocking. Progress can be made quicker than you think.
