My message to religious people

Here's my message to you: Your brain is a biological computer programmed by your DNA evolved over 110,000 years through competition, adaptation, and mutation.  It was built to survive and procreate to live on into the future.  In that 110,000 years it was a valuable trait to join with other members to form society. It was better for the gene pool to have men willing to believe a common view and fight and die to protect the herd.

This is known in science as one form of the computational theory of mind.

It was a genetic trait that became the norm in the gene pool. That's why it's easy for you to believe silly nonsense your parents indoctrinated you with.

We know all this now, science has discovered the truth, so don't be afraid and don't fear thinking for yourself.
