I say that beliefs in magic and the supernatural are dangerous, because they keep verifyable knowledge from taking hold; religions and fables were meant to be placeholders until the time came when our intuition and dilligence would replace them with more detailed observations and finer facts. Not to promote ignorance.

These beliefs are also dangerous because they cast their holders against one another. Every other, different belief is a menace to theirs. Some believers will not hesitate to go the extra legnth to ensure integrity, stability and perennity for their precious worldview. Segregation, war, jihad, genocide, or just plain hatred.

It goes to show how flimsy these edifices are!
