Well, I think you totally distort my words with your own prejudices and misconceptions, but I see no advantage to man, and significant downsides to religion, at our present stage of development. Morality and religion are not the same thing. Religion is not necessary for either teaching it, or the maintenance of it. Morality is nothing more than the rules a society agrees on, to allow men to live peacefully in groups, If the caveman had not had their own form of morality, we would not be here to talk about it, Their tribes would have broken up, and alone, they would have been lunch for various predators much larger and well equipped than they were, on their own. Together, though, we have managed to dominate this earth. In point of fact, our present society would not be possible without that ability, either.
