The clip religion and science Part 2 from Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed (2008) with Ben Stein
We're not going to take away their churches.
But what we have to do is get it to a place
Where religion is treated
At the level it should be treated.
That is, something fun
That people get together and do on the weekend
And really doesn't affect their life
As much as it has been so far.
Stein: so what would the world look like
If dr. Meyers got his wish?
Greater science literacy,
Which is going to lead to the erosion of religion,
And then we'll get this nice positive feedback mechanism going,
Where as religion slowly fades away,
We get more and more science to replace it.
And that will displace more and more religion,
Which will allow more and more science in,
And we'll eventually get to that point
Where religion has taken that appropriate place
As a side dish rather than the main course.
Stein: but will eradicating religion
Really lead to a modern utopia?
Let me try to imagine that.
And let's let history be our guide.
