I only had the to read the very first line of your post to see that you are continuing to adjust... Look at your post above..."your diagnosis of religion as being a problem for humans, so prescribing its elimination". I did not say that "religion" is a problem. I'm saying that "religion" is not an answer to the dilemmas we face in the present. Nor have I ever said anything about...."prescribing its elimination". The fact is, I've stated the exact opposite several times now.... Now please pay attention to the word "That" underlined above. That word is not a reference to "religion" itself.... it is a reference to the observations that.... "religion" has missed the whole point completely. It is worthless. That IMO is the reason society continues to deteriorate....and the environment along with it.... "Religion" has simply "missed the mark" so to speak.... and that is precisely what the word "sin" in the Bible is used for. It's an archery term that means "missing the mark".
