Let me give my opinion: I think religion helped define what we understand as right or wrong, and, as it is not going to simply vanish in the next few generations, it will still have a role in the changing sense of morals. Religion has affected, and will affect, morals both ways, with good things (like kindness, even if only for fear of hell) and bad things (such as discrimination and such).

 

Do you think that religion has helped shape our current sense of right and wrong? Will it still affect it afterwards? Has it added more good or bad ideals?

About that "helping" thing, what I meant is the first case. I meant it has taken part in the discussion, and I agree that we only are were we are because of secularism.

About the "religion vanishing", I hadn't thought about what you said, and I also hope to see religion marginalized on such matters. Bu it may take a while before that happens.

Interesting. Hadn't thought about it that way...
