Religion promotes the spread of ignorance. It provides an avenue for the spread of concepts that go against the acquisition and denigrate the value of knowledge. Specifically it rails against knowledge accumulated and extracted by human intellect and favors that written in religious texts.
It is therefore my charge that should humanity become extinct, the fault lies with religion and a belief in god and an afterlife. The environment of earth itself is being degraded because belief and religion override science in political circles.
Religion and belief are destroying humanity and the ability of the earth to support life.
