    faith
    If you believe in God you basically believe all was revealed at Creation, the beginning of history. When you don't believe in God you put your faith in the progress of human ability. Revelation then lies at the end of history. Where building a space colony is forward-thinking, religious order by its very nature is always backward. Seems to me there would be no need for a religious order up there.

    Religion is a philosophy which does not have to be set by others, and its definition of God must come from yourself.

    There must always be a freedom to religion: a freedom to choose your way of life. What would be more appropriate to ban is that there must not be a religion that demands wealth in return for salvation and eternal life—or misery—in imaginary places, ruled by imaginary people.

    The most intuitive 'religions' are those which are nature-based, be it the natural world, or our natural being: Be good and don't harm anything. To ban religion is to ban the conscience.

    What is the "End of History"?

    "The criticism of heaven turns into the criticism of earth, the criticism of religion into the criticism of law and the criticism of theology into the criticism of politics."
    Karl Marx

    "Marx believed that once the true nature of religion as spiritual compensation for social alienation had been revealed, it had been exposed as a secondary phenomenon dependent on socioeconomic circumstances and therefore merited no further independent criticism"
