I don't disrespect anybody who espouses a particular religion or belief - that is their own right to do that. But I think it's terribly important to look beyond the comfort that religion gives.

A religion without mystery must be a religion without God.
Through some combination of culture and biology, our minds are intuitively receptive to religion.

I've got no problem with anybody's religion. But if you go claiming the Earth is only 10,000 years old, that's just wrong.
I have always said that often the religion you were born with becomes more important to you as you see the universality of truth.
I say you don't need religion, or political ideology, to understand human nature. Science reveals that human nature is greedy and selfish, altruistic and helpful.
It doesn't matter what tradition you come from, what religion you have or don't, what culture you were brought up in or what God you ascribe to: Faith is worthwhile as it helps us to be kinder, more generous, more loving and forgiving people.
Charity Sunshine Tillemann-Dick

Martin Luther King, Jr.
