Agree. Religion is just legitimized superstition that causes problems.
Disagree. Though it has faults, religion plays an important role.
I didn't read past that point. You're posts aren't of sufficient value to warrant reading. You can't make something true by repeating it over and over.No they don't. They have belief that man made global warming is real .........
That's true, but people often become atheists as a result of first becoming critical thinkers. If we had mass atheism as a result of that, we would enjoy the elimination of holy wars and religious terrorism. But you're right -- if people became atheists simply because it was drilled into them, they would lack critical thinking abilities.Even if religion was somehow magically removed from the minds of people then something else would fill the void. Just look at Raelism (raelians). They are atheists but they nonetheless have some of the silliest and stupidest beliefs.
Being an atheist doesn't magically make someone a critical thinker.
I'm going to have to look up Raelism. I'm not familiar with it; thanks for the heads up.
