    That won't be possible. But you can exclude people who are professionally religious.

    Adopt the Bolshevik method where places of worship are closed down and discrimination in favour of those who profess agnosticism or atheism...unless you intend to breed religion out of the human brain via genetic engineering.

    I dont think that's a good idea. It will be then just like a parallel to those theocratic societies where people with different beliefs are persecuted/marginalized and forbidden to practice their religions. I think it's better that people come to this decision out of their own free will, and education and knowledge is the key.

    I don't think condescending to people is a whole lot more effective than legally forbidding them. Especially when you're dealing with a cure in search of a problem.

    You don't.

    You promote the redirection of religious impulses where they conflict with objective scientific criteria or (subjective) personal morality (i.e. you demand that legal prohibitions on behavior are justified through secular reasoning), and otherwise accept that religion fulfills needs within many (probably most) people that secular alternatives cannot (and in other areas, cannot do as well), and not be a petty dick about any necessary confrontations as they arise.

    The only way for said thing to occur would be if it took root in our way of reasoning, as an obsolete way of thinking/communicating about life, if that happened it would only be a matter of time. Seeing how knowledge is not about reality, it's the stigma of interpersonal relationships.

    I think there should be religious education at schools. The children should know the "official version" of their religion otherwise they believe that kinky bullshit their parents taught them. Christians should know the traditional and historical Jesus, so they build their own oppinion on religion.

    Who is saying anything about condescending here? Are you implying that i endorse condescending to people, or that my proposal to increase education is condescending? If so, what about what i said makes you think that? How did you even come to that conclusion in the first place anyway? Did you even read my post, or rather, did you even try to comprehend it?

    I want to know if i am dealing with a legitimate case here or just a troll so that i dont waste my time.

    By acknowledging that we don't know what happens after death or any realm in the field of metaphysics. By giving people a way to have higher purpose here in this world. By replacing the prosocial functions of religion with other institutions. By debunking mythology with a more comprehensive view of life that incorporates all the fields of study in life.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
