  • The kind of religion that teaches that b.s.

    Not all do, though. The issue isn't simply religion vs. science. It's certain types of religion.

  • Any belief that teaches her first list is obviously very damaging. And unfortunately we witness the result of this damage in many people of any religion such as that.
    Not all people are taught this, although it seems a large majority of religious people come from it.

  • In this context the religion of course. Some religions are very damaging while some are good. It just depends on the religion and how the parents enforce the religion to the kids.

  • The first thing many learn about religion is they are sinners and that God loves them anyway. I've always wondered.

  • Thanks 2libras. IMO, lumping all religion together is just as intellectually dishonest and prejudiced as those exclusive believers who claim that religion has some sort of monopoly on morality. Both sides of the argument are gross over-generalizations and help perpetuate the issues between people of different beliefs or non-belief.It is part of the problem, just as guilty of dishonesty and prejudice as fundamentalists teaching exclusion. It will only be when we can be honest about the fact that there are many different ways of being religious, and that certain ways are more problematic than others, that we actually make any headway, instead of projecting equal guilt/blame on every type of belief, even if there are types that don't teach whatever it is that we take issue with.

  • I agree with BG. Not all religions teach this. It doesn't have to be religion vs. science. It is possible for them to coexist.
