IMHO, human dread of death perpetuates pedophilia.

People are so afraid of death, they'll allow child abuse to continue so as to keep believing in the afterlife and those who peddle it.

6. I disagree with your premise.

The only fear of death I have are those memories of unkind deeds not acknowledged prior to the synopsis. If the brain flash of memory precedes my demise.

7. Ok, so I get your point

But, fear of death is far from it. One must get to the basis of why religion is still around: control over people.

8. Yes, it's control, but the reason we don't just quit religion altogether is the after-life

promise. It's just so good to think you'll never die, that you'll ( I mean humanity) keep the church around, and all the bad things that come with it.

10. Yes, of course, but would any of it stick at all without eternal life? The avoidance of "the end"?

I say, no.

11. Hard to say

Good possibility it wouldn't. Another atheist once said to me that the only reason it was still around was because the crusades. The join-or-die mentality.
