The Origin of Organized Religion

Disgusted by organized religion, 30% of Americans now claim no religious affiliation even though many say they’re “spiritual.” Will this trend continue to grow? Or might something…else…come out of it?

    I note that 1/3 is just about the percentage of eligible voters who don’t vote. Surely, voting is one of the newer religions. Right now, I keep hearing about the miracle of the Biden economy. The political atheists among us point out that wages are still not even close to what they should be when compared to productivity increases in the past 40 years. And are shouted down. And we point out that about half the households in this “great” economy can’t come up with $2,000 in an emergency. And are shouted down. And we point out that credit card debt default is increasing. And are shouted down.

    Other than all the negative facts raised by the skeptics that disprove the religion’s claim of economic recovery, yeah, the beliefs of the faithful hold water. Still, if Biden wins in November, I will revisit my stance on miracles.
