On the redeeming value of religion — 1 Comment

  1. Totally agree with you on your point.
    However, I come from a very poor environment, were people can’t afford to get smarter, they need a frame of reference to decide good from bad.
    Don’t forget that you can’t apply common sense to foolish people and a lot of them need to be lied to be able to make it through the day.
    Religion is a product of our under developed society, and as long as you have the foolish masses, there will be a belief in some kind of invisible force that watches you.
    You should also remember that all these millions of years of brain development have some side-effects, and one of the features that we don’t want to abandon, is the belief that everything makes sense and there’s reward.
