The internet is bad for religion

This excellent video from famous creationism debunker Thunderf00t articulates very well something I've thought for a long time – that the internet is bad for religion. It's easier than ever to be exposed to counter-arguments, criticisms and opposing views, which in my experience (and as the video shows) tend to be bad for religion, which often thrives on emotional appeals, childhood indoctrination and groupthink. The precipitous drop in religious affiliation in developed nations over the last 15 years is a testament to that.
