Pie in the Sky

An excellent article by Johann Hari in the Independent yesterday exposed not just the fallacy of belief in Heaven but the way in which the concept of Heaven has been used as a means of social control.

One of the points he raises is that of the undue respect that we as a society display towards religion – it’s one of the last taboos.  As far as I am concerned, if you believe something to be untrue and damaging, it’s right and proper to speak out loudly and clearly.
