There is a God? Really? What do you mean by God? By examining the world around me I have found no trace of God, only a multitude of traces of:
1. Biological evolution
2. Earth history that spawns nearly 5 billion years
3. evidence that Earth is not the centre of the Universe
4. etc

True democracy is a myth, and so is absolute freedom. People are irrational beings and as such should be controlled by the state, not by some horseshit, god-begging religion. A total ban on religions is inevitable.

Re: Meet The New Boss

Assuming that your scenario is plausible, why should we trust "The State" if people are irrational? Would not the members in positions of authority also be prone to irrational tendencies?
Its like The Who says in the song, "We Won't Get Fooled Again" :
Meet the new boss....same as the old boss.
Haha. Good point. If you elect lowlife and crackheads for government- the country will go down very fast(some countries in latin america come to mind). If you elect educated and capable people to govern the state - things can get going pretty soon. This of course has to take place after a serious load of work has been done for legislature, law and institutions. And I am not saying/implying all believers are lowlife/crackheads.
