This is a really good response to the question. Well done. However, despite the poignancy of your rebuttal, it still does not refute the effectiveness of having a “false-sense” of hope that is a lot of the time the only thing people may have when they are on a low.
We must not forget that hope of any kind will at least offer a means of relief for people.
Yet i still agree with your perspective. At the end of the day – the destruction of religion will always outweigh the advantages (of “false” belief).
Thanks for the enlightenment though.
Typical Hitchens rhetoric. Always, always, always telling it like it is. Thank you Chris. Thank you. You echoed the point I’ve been stressing to my friends and family for many years.
