I watched an interesting video about how religions/cults survive and how the internet could spell a downward spiral for religion because of the free flow of ideas.
I say good riddance to religion. Science survives in spite of strong scrutiny from all sides who have an incentive to disprove the theory (to gain some intellectual kudos). Science has proven itself to be true. It was science that took man to the moon and built aeroplanes which believers of all kinds of religions fly everyday around the world. Science has built-in self-correction mechanisms to constantly adjust the knowledge; and science teaches us to continue studying to better understand the universe.
