While I might admire your sentiment, I'm afraid I have to point out that in the whole record of man's recorded history what you envision has not occurred.


Well, it might not be occurring as fast as we would like, but it certainly is occurring. Over the past couple of millennium, secularism and atheism in particular were almost completely unheard of. Demographic data shows these movements growing slowly but steadily. To me it is almost as certain as a law of physics, nonsense cannot stand up to reason.

I suppose civilization might degrade into a state (as described by another poster) where we "run around naked throwing feces at each other", but I think knowledge and reason will prevail,...eventually.
