Religion Causes Problems?

Interesting story on a study here. My views on religion are no secret. I think you can use Iran and Saudi Arabia and the Taliban as well as the the extreme religiousness of much of our country as negative examples as well. One thing I would have liked to seen addressed is the problem of fundamentalism. Or not. Maybe as long as you have religion you are going to have fundamentalists. There's no way around that. Maybe the only way to get rid of the fundamentalists (Christian and Islamic and etc.) is to rid the world of religion? At the very least, the more secular our government becomes the better off we'll be.

Are you trying to get Lane to prattle on endlessly?
If so, you're on the right track.
