  1. Nice post, you make some very good points. I think people are so afraid of dying that they hold on to religion, just in case it’s real and they won’t be fucked in the afterlife. When I die, I will be cremated and then spread into the ocean, food for the fish and that’s it.

  2. I do wonder how many people are faking religious belief because of societal & family pressures, or because the psychological consequences of rationalism are too painful – probably a huge number. But I also think there are intelligent, educated people who actually do have a magical/supernatural view of the world along the lines of Michael Shermer’s “why people believe weird things.”
