Imo Christianity is a cult. It just so happens to be a very popular one. It involves itself in child indoctrination and the spreading of false information. It tries in every turn to undermine scientific understanding and not only that but the scientific method itself. It insists the follower abandon reason and resort to a god did it stance. It sells a false hope that it can not be verified and relies heavily on the follower to accept it.

In fact some theists actually make the claim that Disney was an attempt to indoctrinate children. Funny how the guilty becomes the accuser. In the movie dogma they play off that fallacy.

Christianity even has a commandment, not to worship other gods. It purely wants to protect it's own investment meanwhile condemning anyone outside of it's group. It doesn't matter to a Christian if a Buddhist is a good person or compassionate giver of necessities. They still condemn the Buddhist and say they are misled and hell bound.

Nationality could then be seen as a cult...
Or Politics, regardless ideas or promises

Could the Quest for Wisdom & Knowledge become a Culture ?

Yes. It has already begun. It is secular reasoning. That society is complex and should be allowed to move within it's own rights. The benefit of the system is that as long as you are not purposely imposing against the system then everything you do is fine. Let the community be and keep the dogma to yourself.

It is alright to believe in invisible friends. I don't care what you do, what rituals you want to perform as long as they are not causing harm to lives of the people or damaging others property or restricting their freedoms to do the same. If you want to believe in a god, that is fine by me, but it is not fine to impose those beliefs onto the society and expect them to uphold to some make believe moral code.

I would not intentionaly harm other sentient be:ings. It's none of any-one business if I believe any-thing. It's my brain. I decide access unless physicly forced. I do not forget.

Play with imagination is Good & Creative. Not as productive as baking bread or making a pot; but OK.

@Pepijn Sweep,
some one told me this today, a cult is easy to get into but hard to get out of.
Does this then mean religion is easy to get out of where as a cult is not?

Do we need to brainwash new members to keep them?

Some religions leave one with a great sense of guilt for leaving the fold. So, no, not all religions are easy to get out of.
