Here's an article that explains how religion and secular delusions persist despite the modern education system that counters religious indoctrination and teaches us how to think.

  1. The proportional and absolute predominance of religious/delusional beliefs began with the emergence of civilizations. It appears that there was a positive selection on the part of the more conformist or domesticable individuals, and it is related to the interruption of the increase in human brain growth.

    Instead of intelligence being selected among everyone, it became unevenly selected as more egalitarian communities became socially vertical or parasitic societies.

    Looking closely at the current intellectual level of our species, and even moral, I don't see much difference with the peoples of antiquity.
