Latin is dead outside of schools, law firms, and hospitals. It's been reduced to obscure academia. That doesn't make it alive.

I'm guessing our primitive brains are not capable of understanding anything. I mean... what is reality?

there is one flaw in your theory. latin isn't a religion

Que? Who argued that?

Latin is, for all intents and purposes, dead despite being taught around the world in academia. Latin, the foundation of western communication.

On the other hand, religion, in your estimate, is only alive because it's still taught. Which is humorous because you completely ignore the role it plays in daily life for billions of people around the world. Daily life, not sparingly or in a token sense, for example on holidays.

We are comparing the teaching theory, not the object theory.

we don't worship the sun anymore. we moved on to something else and something else and something else. they were passed on through teaching, not a god sector in the brain

You are, once again (and oddly), ignoring the fact that billions of people daily pray to gods in ways that have nothing to do with replacing scientific knowledge or explaining mysterious phenomena.

They choose to believe, as people have always chosen to believe. It's a deep emotional desire. This should be common knowledge by now. Stupid science.

because in those times they didn't even have a basic understanding of the world around them. religion/mysticism/spirituality/etc is the caveman's explanation for why the sun disappears at night. in a world where rational thought and reasoned analysis can begin to explain the natural world, those should be the methods used to answer the question of what lies beyond, not looking back to thousand year old texts with dragons and giants.

If you are so damn smart, then explain to the world what caused the mini-Ice Age from ~1350 to ~1850 in Northern Europe and the northern half of North America. Otherwise your just another secularist humanist who has the arrogance thinking that you know it all.

What is it a crutch for, if not scientific knowledge anymore?

a crutch for the unknown. people are weak and need some spooky divine puppet master to look up to, thank when things go well and curse when things go bad

What if people are strong, and WANT a god to look up to? Why so negative? What if it isn't even their tv?

Religion is there to substitute answers to questions that are currently unanswered. It will always be around as long as there are questions to be answered.

Like 4 billion people still live in mud shacks in the middle of nowhere. What do you expect?

What does that have to do with this argument? Are you suggesting that God did it?
