Humans evolved over millions of years. It wasn’t inevitabe, it wasn’t predictable, it wasn’t random either. It just was. It has taken incomprehensible amount of time to evolve the complexity needed in our neural clumps to hold reasoned representations of the world. Considering this biological history, it is safe to say that it will take imponderable time and much cumulative efforts to refine questions like ‘what caused the world’, and, even longer to interpret the answers. Future is an unkind place for those of us in the present. It’s a mirage we’ll never catch, a climax we’ll never reach. You won’t be around then, I won’t exist, humanity itself may not exist. But, questions will be asked and answers will be found. The questions and answers, now and then, do and will owe an awful lot to science and nothing at all to religion.
Given this conception you would excuse me when I say this: Religion, for reasonable minds, is like bicycle lessons for a fish, useless and stupid.
