E. O. Wilson interview on reducing the role of religion.

E. O. Wilson gave an interview about his recent book The Meaning of Life in which he said that it would be beneficial to reduce and eliminate the role of religion.

Hello, and welcome to Dr Allan H. Clark in California. We are pleased to welcome you here among the sensible, rational people of this world.

This is a fantastic meeting place with its 14,750 bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is---
and that God and gods are nothing but fictions.

originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
