UPDATE: I just clicked on that first link—and it wouldn’t let me read the d—-d article!
Okay, so here’s what you need to do: plug “is religion good for society” into your search engine. The link should show up near the top, with the header:
Is Religion Bad For Society? | Issue 78 | Philosophy Now
Simply click on the link in the search engine and it will take you directly to the full article.
Sorry about that.
Well, I found a couple of pieces that weren’t terrible, but, honestly, these aren’t great:
Rev. Bob Eckard, Is Religion Bad for Society, Philosophy Now, Sept/Oct 2012
Phil Zuckerman, Is Faith Good for Us? Council for Secular Humanism, 2005?
There are a boatload of debate sites online that you can peruse (simply run a search on “is religion good for society” and you’ll find the links), but I want y’all to read more than just back-and-forths.
Anyway, I may add to this or offer substitutes tomorrow (Wed). . . .
