who's version? One person's utopia is anothers hell.
But to answer your question? No.
While religion can be hateful, and is all too often, it can also bring great beauty into the world as well. As with anything else man creates.

After all, I assume that a Christian's idea of heaven is a place that you wouldn't get bored of, eventually, after a hundred thousand years of harp music.

..could the smurf village ever be a eutopia, or is it fated always be an outpost?
(..and why was there a 'papa smurf'?)
it's not the smurfs themselves who are savage, primitive & have no reason..
it's that world around them (the forest, its inhabitants & the law of the jungle)
take 'God' away from that and it's pretty bleak..
it almost begs the question, what the heck were the smurfs doing living there in the first place?
