    They also create their own version of science which is based on supporting their beliefs. Hence not really science at all.

    What you have stated is so true. Less educated + insecurity in many forms= adherence to organized religion.

    I'll disagree here. Only faith in the bible leads to knowledge? So what about all the other 1ST world nations that have just as much knowledge and technological growth as the U.S? This is the problem with religion. It discounts all points of view.

    Poverty and warfare that continues for too long will create religious fanatics. This is why ISIS and al qaeda are the way they are.

    Ah yes. The brother sun and sister moon argument. True scientific study does not diminish the creator of all in anyone's eyes. Both science and religion can have their place without one making less of the other.
