most people in the developed world
I feel most people that "believe" in God suppress their own skepticism due to conformity and/or because of the terrifying fact that our consciousness completely vanquishes after our death.
god is mostly untestable
If someone trips on a hose, they cuss or call on Jesus.
The system of justice from Moses, Jesus, Paul and Rome when developed well, leads to a good business system and a reasonably safe society, and some value on peace. It caused good times, we still have some of now.
Unless, you are female, gay, left handed, a slave, a foreigner, an atheist, a Jew, a Muslim, anyone who likes shellfish, a hairdresser ....Why do you post such transparent nonsense?What actually caused peace and prosperity was overthrowing those insane prejudices.
It was not the bomb that somehow gave us good lives.
Christ Jesus revising the law, that is the Gospel in practice.
if you make your girlfriend pregnant, you are obliged to marry her. This idea comes from Moses.

Charles 1948 mentioned the bomb.
