@ Anathean and CommonThere's actually no proof that secular people are in any way more civilized. There's no correlating evidence suggesting that Secularism has anything to do with crime rates, teen pregnancies or even "happy people". These are merely loaded statements to prove to oneself how superior they are to other people.Also, at present there is no religion of a sky wizard of some sort, and to my knowledge no major religion acknowledges pixies as real creatures.The fact is, there are a lot of stupid people out there. Some are Christian, some are Muslim, some are Hindus, some are Atheists, just to give a few examples. Stupidity isn't tied into any faith, or lack of thereof. Stupid is, stupid does.I find it odd, that you "normal people" are so willing to believe people with a different world view are somehow mentally challenged or morally handicapped. This kind of thinking stinks of arrogance, and I can hardly see it producing any good results for anyone.As for the notion that humanity has grown in some way and learned from past mistakes... I sure hope so, though I think it would be pretty easy to prove other wise. In the mean time though, seems like were making our fair share of bad choices as a collective to give more study material to our kids.
