The thrust of this article is that the increase in skepticism and secularism that this century has seen so far is a good thing. Secular thought lends itself better to solving pressing problems on a global scale, enhances a cosmopolitanism that mitigates tribalism and divisiveness, and encourages focus on the here-and-now, which also enhances society's ability to take immediate action to solve both immediate and long-range problems. Zuckerman acknowledges the benefits of religion even as he underscores their downsides.

His thinking is very close to my own.
