So while education goes up. Religious belief goes down.

They do not connect the Jesus Christ with the Secular Science.

The Big Bang, would mean, what the World is older, than 8 000 years. So, it is wrong idea. To correct this, one shall say "the Seeming Big Bang", and the years prior to the Creation are called "the seeming years".

Well, CS, I'd say that Borgo here has unequivocally proved the reverse corollary to your premise: that as religious belief goes up, education goes down. (Or at least, the ability to absorb the facts in a given educational program, such as physics.)

Or so it is "seeming". Undecided

This is the most terrifying aspect of the religion virus, to me. It implants a programming filter in their minds that says, "If any following data arrives that conflicts with this program, reject the new information automatically."

It's the only way to even have the capacity to say, "So, it is the wrong idea. To correct this..." without overloading one's irony circuits. This is what fundamentalist religion does to the brain.
