I don’t know if I actually have enough people reading my blog to warrant a good dialogue in the comment section, but here goes –
What would life be like if there were no gods? I don’t necessarily mean ever, just in the future. So let’s say, hypothetically, that in 50 years, all the people on Earth stopped believing in their gods. All of the religious texts were debunked (again) to the point where everyone gave up on religious fantasy, and all humans were sufficiently skeptical and evidence-based that everyone gave up on religious nonsense. What would the world be like? Would homophobia be gone? Would the world economy drastically change? How about unemployment? Education? Human rights? Media? Technology? Would other supernatural or fringe concepts replace religion? For example, would more people start believing in ghosts or the zodiac? Would people adhere more to other social groups, to replace church? Would the world become more humanistic?
Lend me your thoughts in the comment section, and let’s go from there!
