How can anyone comment, when that says it all?

Religion is a swindle and makes swindlers wealthy.

People who buy religion won't admit to buying bullshit.

If poverty results, they still won't admit to having bought bullshit.

Religion is a powerful force, and everybody knows it.  You are dismayed by its untruthfulness, but its members are mostly content.  The ones that are less content are permitted to squabble, provided that they serve as apologists.  As apologists, they struggle to fuse religion and truth, giving outsiders the impression that the movement is essentially intellectual.  Stop being fooled.

You're welcome.

Well said, Mike; religion is essentially emotional.

When a discussion allows I tell people my opinion: emotions rule and the mind's function is to help us stay out of jail.

There are two types of religion... There is false religion, and there is my one true religion!
