When it comes to religion, we are getting better. Religious belief is declining, and don't let any religious leader tell you otherwise (or xenophobic nationalist either).
All religious belief is shrinking, the younger generations are rejecting it more and more. The reason this is happening is education, whether that's because of state education becoming more scientific and secular or easy access to the internet.
We know this works, because it's worked in our own countries. Without TV, cinema and the Internet, millions of people would have grown up in their small town brainwashed by their religious elders into following a narrow and isolated path.

I think we as a race believe in these two things and base our lives on them is simple. There requires no thoughts of a critical nature to just accept them. Easy Peasy I guess... LOL!! So we, not me for sure, buy into them because it is the easiest way of life maybe? Just my 2 cents here, for what that is actually worth now a day... lol!!!
