You know, I was raised in the USSR where the official religion was atheism and materialism. The results were disastrous.

All official religions are disasterous because they are tools to control people.

Hence you could take the existence of people in the USA who "believe in an immaterial spirit, distinct from brain processes" positively. After all, they are working hard and contribute to prosperity.

I have no problem with people who believe that, although I think the evidence is that it is otiose. But religious fundamentalist in the U.S. are working hard to make their religion official - and I do have a problem with that.

In any case, I do not think that the ideology should affect reasoning.

Should reason affect ideology?
