No, apparently we haven't. People still follow religion as though it were based on something other than the imaginings of somebody that lived a long time ago.bdeywoo wrote: Ya know Jeffrey Dahlmer was a Christian, using your line of thinking all Christians are evil i guess. Have we not learned anything in the last 100 years?
I'm not saying that people can't believe in religion, I'm just saying it's an awfully bizarre thing for any rational adult to be doing. I mean, seriously, imaginary cloud beings that guide our everyday life? Sure, it's a pretty story, and imagination is a wonderful thing... but living your life based on some "prophets" imaginings thousands of years ago? That's crazy.
Let's face it, insane acts will be done in the name of any religion because religion itself is a fiction that people believe is real. As long as there is religion there will be genocide, there will be persecution of those who are different, there will be terrorism. That's not to say there won't be any of those things without religion, I just think people have one less reason to do those things without religion.
