When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called a religion. Robert M. Pirsig
I couldn’t agree more. Religion is a great tool to organise society based on fear and pressure while the general public is not educated enough to manage complexity of the world and life.
But as soon as the people are at a level of education that is high enough to understand the basic principles of how nature works and how the human mind and psyche work, it becomes obsolete.
