This Is What Superstition Looks Like

On the same page with the logic Dan, well said. However as you acknowledge many religions (in spite of irrational beliefs) are capable of, & manage to achieve, genuinely good works, you are likely to be tilting at windmills in taking them on as no better than the ‘witchcraft’ brigade. For me the point in attempting to change widely-held beliefs is not that ‘there is no evidence’ they are true (because billions of people will say ‘so what? we believe’), rather to emphasise the belief is evil, or abusive of humanity, or whatever else that might work — what the hell when that fails, pragmatically use the country’s prevailing religious superstitions that defend human rights, or even the force of whatever civil/legal codes exist to pragmatically persuade people to change.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
