So much of popular religion is simply a collection of ancient superstitions and old campfire stories. Even Pope Francis has told the Church that God is not a "wizard." God is not our ever-present nanny or "fairy godmother" whose task it is to comfort and protect us, and to shield us from any danger, discomfort, or disappointment. So what, then, really is the point of religion and spiritualism in a modern world?

Exploring the concept of religion from an objective, sociological standpoint, “The Comforting Illusion: Lifting the Veil on Organized Religion” aims to somehow reconcile our modern worldviews with ancient spiritual perspectives.

By examining religion’s direct and indirect effects on practically every part of 21st century society, be they good or bad, “The Comforting Illusion” pulls aside the curtain of our comfortable rituals and compels us to consider the complex facets of a culture that spans millennia.
