Religion's rule of unreason

Mountebank Roy Masters used to tell his witless listeners that they should not leave their babies unattended in a room at night lest they be overtaken by demonic spirits. Such is the insanity of the religious mindset in its unreconstructed unreformed state. It is hard to understand why such madness would draw an audience and it can only be explained by the wholesale abandonment of reason by the intellectuals and the irrational trend in modern philosophy which has enabled outright charlatans like Masters to gain a hearing.

In the past when religion held sway any who questioned its demented nostrums would be tortured and killed. At least now in the age of enlghtenment we can laugh at such nonsense and arrant  absurdities and only risk criticism from its deranged votaries.
