I believe that in the not so far future religion as we know it will simply by obsolete and become part of history. One of the main reasons that make me to believe that is the fact that religion in its current form is a very static set of values. This set is frozen inside religion by its own “writings” considered to be “the word of god”. Science on the other hand is a very dynamic set and one of its core values is that nothing is absolutely true, anything may change, can change and will be changed in the case it is proved otherwise. Science transfer the whole power of the universe in our very hands while religion it taking it away and give it to a God. Science is for people who care about themselves, about the world they are living in, about the others and it is making progress as you read this, while religion is frozen in some books written thousands years ago. Science is for people who like facts and not interpretations, for people who like to understand not to believe, for people who like the truth not someone’s version of it. Science will conquer the minds of everyone eventually.
Do you think that will happen? And when?
