…mho Freud was partly right in one sense. one has to take up the task of assessing the psychological dynamics at work in religious belief bc religious belief is predicated on existence. If one’s existence is shadowed by crushing fear one most likely has to rely on addictions to numb out the anxiety in order to function. Religion, in it’s cult-like forms, is addictive. If one has experienced the efficacy of faith one has most likely encountered the creative genius and energy of the universe that is constantly sustaining ones buoyancy and optimism throughout all the stages of one’s life.

Indeed. Many a Christian is a practical atheist (and, conversely, many a theoretical atheist images Christ in their life). Frankly, I don’t give a shit whether or not a person believes in (the existence of) God. The question is “Who is this God you believe in and what difference does it make?”
