Comment 2 by rjohn19 :

I think (fear is a better word) Dennett is as delusional predicting the end of faith as are the faithful who predict the end of the world. Col. Robert Green Ingersoll predicted the death of religion in his lifetime and that was 150 years ago.

He didn't predict the end of faith.

  1. Faith != religion.
  2. Dennet said in the talk that either religions will go extinct or become very radical. His point is I think that the only remaining options are at the extreme sides of the spectrum.

Dennet talks about the lack of comparative religion classes in schools.

I grew up in the Netherlands and everyone got these classes already since the mid 80s. I was 13 at that time. We had to learn about Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Satanism, Hindoeism, etc, etc. We had to study the claims and the differences and got tested on it.

People (who didn't know this already) found out that it's just a story. Works very well.

It came after the onslaught of writers and comedians in the 50's, 60's and 70's. They are the real hero's. Ridicule is the best weapon against religion of course. Nobody wants to be laughed at.

That's why they are the first to be threatened and killed.

Just another religious fool. What's new? I guess we have to respect his outrageous opinions.

His silent waiting on the truth, pure sitting and breathing in the presence of the question mark didn't work out too well it seems.
