Religion

Religiously inspired people justify violence, resist social changes, and attack on science. There is no solid or tangible evidence for God nor a logical argument for God. The existence of God is taken on faith and not by evidence.

Views

Marxism–Leninism as the only truth could not, by its very nature, become outdated.
