Well... I think there's always going to be a place for *spirituality* because its an acknowledgement of the irrational in being human. I'll readily admit to having experienced "perfect moments" (even if I know there is a biochemical/neurological foundation for them) and one should enjoy those - and I rather enjoy visiting shrines or temples that help to focus those moments.

Institutional religion with founders (and leaders) who wave a book of "rules" of questionable origin that detail what sort of fabric you wear, who to stone, who to hate? Sects with extreme and unsupportable interpretations of those rules? Insecure violent buffoons who lash out when that is pointed out? Yeah, not destined for the dustbin but needs to be driven there.
