Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, you're simply too caught up in the supposed sanctity of your own beliefs to have read - never mind understood - all the other posts I've made on this subject.

Religion is politics by other means, with a side order of magical theatre. That's all.

Religionists do not agree about anything, except the fact that their personal morals - whatever they happen to be, and no matter how much they conflict with the morals of other religionists - are special and sacred simply because they choose to tag them with the R word.

That's it. That's all that's happening.

The point Jake and I are making is that it's simply not so - and it's dishonest to pretend it is.

The progressive aim is to increase collective intelligence.

You don't do that by relying on supernatural entities to justify your ethics to yourself or other people.
