Religion is living on borrowed time.
Lawrence Krauss, a self-described antitheist (or person who actively opposes the existence of religion) and collaborator with atheist scientist Richard Dawkins on The Unbelievers, believes in at least one thing: if you talk about religions in a certain way, children will stop believing within a generation or two.
When asked about the teaching of religion in schools, Krauss had this to say.
"What we need to do is present comparative religion as a bunch of interesting historical anecdotes, and show the silly reasons why they did what they did."
"People say, 'Well, religion has been around since the dawn of man. You'll never change that," he said before adding that it would soon go the way of "slavery and gay marriage opposition."
