By which I mean, supplanting yourself for God in a worship schema is basically her idea of Objectivism: man worship. And it's not a good idea. I'm an individualist, of course, but I find her ideas untenable.

Has anyone read, "The Lucifer Principle" by Howard Bloom?
Despite its title, it has nothing to do with that fictional resident in the fictional den of the world.
In a nutshell, it explains the Christian idea of "evil" through geneology, history, many scietific studies, and ebb and flow of superorganisms.
I highly recommend it- other than blowing your mind, it would defintely enrich a lot of the arguments (on both sides) of this thread.

Religion itself isn't a bad thing. It's simply a philosophy for how we came to be, how we should act, what's going to happen to us when we die, etc. etc. I think that there is a problem with people becoming almost colt-like in the form of the church and what not and when those organizations have a huge impact on everyone's way of life.

The responses in here have been amazing.

I wonder what people's views on Buddhism are.

I'll look into this, it is something I would probably enjoy.
