  •  Scientology is the best proof yet... (0+ / 0-)

    ....that ALL religious institutions are built on human gullibility.

    Religion is a very complex and dangerous system of superstition. It is dangerous, because superstition impedes the ability to think critically and act rationally. Religion is one of the primary driving forces in human conflict and one of the primary impediments* to social progress.

    *The Martin Luther Kings and Mahatma Ghandis are exceptional outliers; the Catholic Churches, the Southern Baptist Conventions, the Saudi Arabian funded network of Sulafi/Wahabi madrasas are the norm.

    In the Fox News Christian Nation, public schools won't teach sex education and evolution; instead they'll have an NRA sponsored Shots for Tots: Gunz in Schoolz program.
