I don't often use the word soul. Please allow me a moment to gargle... :)

Religion seems to demonize science and technology and I was thinking today. One thing that keeps people religious is this idea that their thoughts, feelings and consciousness could "live forever" with their "eternal-soul". They really don't want to let this comforting idea go. Despite this, I believe that one day most people WILL be atheist. Who knows how long that will take. But I have high hopes for humanity's future. I think we will realize that our time spent alive is more special because that is all that we have. That what we do in life and what we leave behind matters more. I find it interesting and ironic that science and technology are in a way allowing us to PRESERVE our thoughts and feelings even after the death of our bodies by means of the internet. That one day we will probably be able to back up our "personality" with a snapshot of our brains. In a way we we could live forever. Science could, in a manner of speaking, create the non-existent thing which religion holds so dear.The soul.
