The more that’s all said, the truer it becomes, apparently.
Your post was probably very thoughtful compared to most here. For that, I commend you. However, I urge you to reconsider your position. Religion may have been a helpful crutch for humanity in millennia past and for you yourself in your life. However, religion no longer servers any purpose that rational methods don’t. Your Christianity is merely the result of your upbringing, presumably. Don’t ascribe some mystical exception to it.
To Miburo, on the subject of isolated religion:
In terms of whether or not it is permissible, isolated religion is analogous to privately believing that 2+2=5. So long as such beliefs are not used to make decisions that subtract from how another valuable being would otherwise reasonably be, they are innocuous, and thus seemingly acceptable. However, as with any irrational, potentially dangerous concept, religion should not be allowed to gain sway such that it can interfere with human progress.
I suspect you’ll agree with that.
