IANS, your secular humanism and faith it will win out IS an organized religion. Just another sect formed from the Christian ethos with a different perspective. Just another evolutionary branch of that Church.<quoted text>
Religion will be remembered as the phase of man's evolution that connected the time when he was first capable of wondering about the world and his place in it to the time when he answered those questions to his satisfaction.
I'm very grateful, but not to organized religion. I grateful to the people that are helping us to be free from it.
"Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest." Diderot
Why do you suppose so many decent and brilliant people feel just like that?
It is not the first of its sort, which is why it is allowed. They all blend in to form something new. But you won't get rid of God and Jesus. They are the very pillars of even your morality.
