Religion is a conceptual tumor. It's the human imagination taken as truth and in that it inserts itself into any conceptual process. Philosophy began as naturalistic. Then Plato had the terrible idea that anything he thought was true existed in a magical realm of ideas where perfect forms of things existed, and in doing so came up with a theory for god, that there a perfect human existed. St. Augistine took these ideas and Christianized them - the perfect man was Christ and a representative of god. All to the detriment of philosophy. Naturalism was always the right path of philosophy and it's the only philisophical school which has discovered applicable methods. The applicable methods of religion rely on consensus. I need them not to live a happy life. But I can't make electricity do shit without science.
