Religions Are Human Fabrications

In making my case against religion, I’ve posted a few comments on my blog post, George’s Office Wall, including “The Christian Fiction”, “the hall of mirrors that is Christian history”, and James Baldwin’s comment about the “hypocrisies of the Christian church”.  My review of the Koran is also part of my case against religion.

Here, I am posting a comment by Lawrence Krauss concerning the just-out-of-the-cave-and-ignorant-and-fear origins of religion: “tribal groups created [fabricated] religions to help them make sense of the world around them, provide solace for the inequities of nature, and ultimately deal with their own mortality”.

Reducing ignorance and fear reduces reliance on religion.
