I also think that it is only a matter of time until the religious-conservative-right fizzles into oblivion.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. As long as there is death, man will have fear. As long as man has fear he will need some Supernatural belief to provide comfort in the transition to the unknown infinity.I don't mind religious worship, a lot of good has come about by acts of those with faith. But.... one of man's greatest insights is that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Man then took that insight and applied it many ways one of which was the notion of separation of Church and State.Today's wars largely involve situations where that separation has either not occurred or has been weakened sufficiently.I find it amazing that most religions preach that love and forgiveness are the way to eternal happiness, yet many of those religious people who have the public stage seem to preach hate and revenge and eternal damnation.Poz
