About My Religion Pages

This section covers conventional, organized religion as well as superstitions and religion-like social phenomena. Much of what you will find here is about the history of religions because knowing what organizations have done is more enlightening than just hearing their ethical or spiritual claims. I also assess the impact of religios sects and beliefs on contemporary life. Some of my writings are satire or humorous essays; to me tolerating religions does not mean they should be spared from criticism.

Before following other links please read the note on toleration. You might want to check out my Philosophy section as well.
