Gah, thank you! I'm glad someone has some sense on this website. To call religion the product of idiots is ridiculous. For 1000 years religion transcended national government, and held society together. A truly impressive feat. The Catholic church is one of the oldest existing institutions in our history. It doesn't matter whether or not you are an atheist, but you don't have to believe in God to understand that religion and God are important. To unwillingly acknowledge religion's importance is ignorant.
A theologian may indulge the pleasing task of describing Religion as she descended from Heaven, arrayed in her native purity. A more melancholy duty is imposed on the historian. He must discover the inevitable mixture of error and corruption which she contracted in a long residence upon earth, among a weak and degenerate race of beings. - Edward Gibbon.
