“The scientific study of morality is the lever that, if pulled hard enough, will completely dislodge religion from the firmament of our concerns. The world religions will land somewhere near astrology, witchcraft and Greek mythology on the scrapheap.”

    I’ve talked about social contract and evolutionary psychology with religionistas and it always feels like they brought a knife to a gunfight and we both know it. Ahhhhhh. That feels real good.

    I hate to say this, but astrology, witchcraft and Greek mythology can all be classed as religions of one sort or another. The Egyptian pantheon and the Hindu are the same thing with different names. The only semi-original idea was “Moses'” concerning monotheism, and that was screwed up by the Christians.
