I am not a religious person - in fact I’m much more of the opinion that it’s a net negative more frequently due to its second and third order effects than it is a net positive.

How would you describe the key differences between being religious, spirituality, and ritualistic?

I often hear people say, “well if religion makes that person happier and a better person, let them practice.” What are your thoughts on that statement?

Religions across the globe have been exposed for awful traditions (evangelicals for pray the gay away camps, Catholics for molesting little boys etc etc etc). Through your experiences with rituals and celebrations, have you had any moral conundrums where you feel the practice is morally/ethically wrong?
