Is religion still relevant in the 21st century?
DOES Believing in god make people more likely to do good things? Is religion a version of science which is perhaps misunderstood? If religion was not evil why do we still have pastors and bishops who rape? Why does the Catholic Church domesticate people in a way that depopulates humanity and against the order of biological law of nature? Why does religion have to be pushed down the throats of infant humans, apparently for moral reasons? Can humanity survive without religion? Is religion the root of all good and bad? These are all perplexing questions that one may ask in order to come into grips with an understanding whether religion (or rather, the idea of the supernatural) is still relevant in our society, given the intellectual developments that the 21st century has been characterised by.
