Is it time to finally do away with religion all together?

    We've tried to play nice, we tried to co-exist, but religion just refuses to just leave well enough alone. Aside from the usual religious nonsense, now there's outrage over Bill Nye gave an interview in which he talked about the danger of teaching creationism in schools.

    As you can imagine, the religious right is all bent out of shape now because someone thinks kids should be learning Science in schools, not religion.

    If people want to believe in God, that's their business. If they wan't to believe that the Earth is only 6,000 years old, hey- they have that right; but when they want to try and force their idiocy on others by trying to teach that nonsense in schools, that's most definitely not ok.

      Please do not lump all Christians into the same fundamentalist group that believes the earth is only 6000 years old.  To think that "doing away" with religion will solve anything is kind of like saying "Hey, people kill one another over honor - won't the world be better off without honor?"

      Lots of stupid people do stupid things, and evil people do evil things, and both sorts of people will conscript any ideology, concept, movement, or idea to justify their actions.  Take one away and they'll just latch on to another.
