Religion Spirituality and Atheism
Deputy Chief Constable Tony Melville's explanation of the state of mind of Exeter UK bomber Nick Reilly suggests something about the possible state of mind and purpose underpinning alot of formal religion when he says:

Any instance where lack of critical thinking is impaired or supressed is surely evidence of gullibility and manipulation.
