To atheists, agnostics, skeptics, humanists, and materialists out there, what is the


allure and significance of people believing that there is an afterlife? Do you further contend that belief in an afterlife is an excuse of not living life to the fullest of human potential and is an avoidance of fully facing and embracing life?

    I believe Marx said opiate of the masses and not opium. This would have taken into account laudanum which contains opium.

    Not sure you are right about humans being an evolutionary dead end. I believe we are evolving but it can be a very slow process. Religion can be and is in too many places a double edged sword.
