"I have no doubt that religion will not go extinct. It may loose its hold on the majority, or so I hope, but it will never completely go away. As long as there is irrational thought there will be religion.

So you’re from Oz, Eh? Well good on ya mate and welcome to the land that is America.
I know what you mean about America being a “crazy religious country” in fact it’s even worse in some ways in the southern half of the country (Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana Texas, and Alabama in particular). I lived down around Florida awhile back and I thought most of the folks there were a bit dodgy. I think it’s mostly because yer average bloke down there ain’t all that cultured, but you do have the warmer weather, so there’s something of a trade in.
Anyway, yea I did live in Australia for a bit over a year, I lived (and worked part time) on a dairy farm in Yoongarillup (about 15 km southeast of Busselton WA). It was amazing! There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t think about going back there (especially when I’m digging my ute out of the snow).
Anyway, I wish you all the best too mate, stay sane! David M
