Since religion offers a complete set of answers to the problems of purpose, morality, origins, or science, it discourages exploration of those areas by suppressing curiosity, denies its followers a broader perspective, and prevents social, moral and scientific progress.

Views

Marxism–Leninism as the only truth could not, by its very nature, become outdated.
