Yes, it's easy to ignore religion,
when you have a nice job. But you don't
know the causes of things as a rigorous scientist should.

While you were happily studying nature, some
of us were up to our butts in religious conspiracies.
Your communism, of which you are so proud,
was founded by persons like Karl Marx, writing
in the British Museum. That country had one of the first modern constitutions recognizing individual rights against the tyranny of majorities.
Western Civilization evolved through unshackling people from religious dictatorships,
whose main feature was not the particular religious superstition, but their desire to be dictators.
Hitler, Stalin and Mao killed the most, just like Inquisitions, but they had all rejected Christianity.
So while it is admirable to prefer "just the truth" you should not assume the "masses" are
going to be governed wisely while managers are ignorant of religion. I would say more but I have seen no evidence you understand history outside the Soviet Union, and not much inside it either. Still, sometimes you say good things.
