Religion major contender as “root of all evil”

“Religion may not be the root of all evil, but it is a serious contender. Even so it could be justified, if only its claims were true. Even so it could be justified, if only its claims were true. But they are undermined by science and reason. Imagine a world where nobody is intimidated against following reason, wherever it leads.”

Religion falsely passed on by parents to kids

“Innocent children are being saddled with demonstrable falsehoods. It’s time to question the abuse of childhood innocence with superstitious ideas of hellfire and damnation. Isn’t it weird the way we automatically label a tiny child with its parents’ religion?”

Use eugenics to breed superior human beings

“[I]f you can breed cattle for milk yield, horses for running speed, and dogs for heralding skill, why on earth should it be impossible to breed humans for mathematical, musical, or athletic ability? I wonder whether, some 60 years after Hitler’s death, we might at least venture to ask what the moral difference is between breeding for musical ability and forcing a child to take music lessons. Or why is it acceptable to train fast runners and high jumpers but not to breed them?”
