Michael Penn replied to Craig's discussion Is religion a virus of the mind?
"Religion is very much like a computer virus. Many viruses can even attach in such a way as to convince you they are a natural part of your operating system. The goal is to hide, disguise, and propagate the virus. Imagine now early humans living in a…"

Is religion a virus of the mind?

With a short engagement on the chat I felt that this topic should be explored further. I will start out with definitions my argument and pitiful excuse for a conclusion, My goal is to either change minds or have mine own be changed. A virus is "an infective agent that typically consists of a nucleic acid molecule in a protein coat, is too small to be seen by light microscopy, and is able to multiply only within the living cells of a host".
