Just before this thread dives into throwing apples and oranges at each other.

What is a "religion"?

There are many very different dimensions

  • believing in higher beings/deities
  • ethical behavior (commandments like "don't kill" to "don't fart drive cars" )
  • political impact (e.g. cast system or using priests as functionaries or seeing a king as gods representative )
  • adopted traditions (from Christmas trees to female circumcision)
  • ethnic group thru strict endogamy *
@Erix: Darwin didn't solve the problem of the watchmaker, and Kant proved long ago that there can't be any proof either way.

Instead of discussing the badly defined R-word we should concentrate on aspects affecting our past and future - especially in a globalized world.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
