The truth doesn't become any less true just because it's unpalatable.The people who have made it their business to sell religion have found what is palatable to the masses,and have pandered to them in order to enjoy their financial support.This process of pandering to the tastes and fears of the masses has been constantly modified and refined to accomplish their ultimate goal,which is the domination of society and the suppression of free will;Islam is a good example of this.I believe{with the help of the internet}this process that the "religious leaders" have foisted on society can be reversed,like the dissipation of fog when the sun comes out.With the internet,people can privately compare reason to faith,an option that was not so accessable a few years ago.I'm betting on reason!

I have a theory that reason was the majority's approach to the world tens of thousands of years ago, but crazed delusional people killed them for dismissing their delusions.  Reasonable people don't kill others because of what they believe, delusional people do.  So the crazies have been selecting for insanity for thousands of years, and decreasing the population of reasonable, rational people.

Makes sense to me!

The truth doesn't become any less true just because it's unpalatable.

If that were true, we wouldn't have political correctness. Designed not to be true, but so that we can be nice and civil to each other - if you are on the right team.
