    I don't see it that way. We've had religion for about as long as we can look back at recorded history. I suspect it will be with us forever in some way.

    I think that its role in society changes over tie, and that strict dogmatic religion finds itself increasingly challenged in the modern era. There is simply too much information out there that contradicts much of the hard line dogma you find in some religions and that erodes their popularity.

    More flexible approaches to faith and spiritualism however don't find it hard to adapt to advances in science and shared human experience.

    History shows religion to be an incredibly durable human institution. It fills some very key human needs.

    The only event I could see that would seriously threaten religious beliefs in a big way would be for humanity to effectively eliminate human mortality.

      Your statement is "RELIGIONS ARE THE TRAINING WHEELS FOR HUMAN EVOLUTION," but what's funny and reflects hypocrisy is that if you're Christian or perhaps a believer of some other religions, you don't even believe in human evolution. If you meant progression, then you are incorrect because it wasn't until people started questioning religion when the greatest discoveries were made.
