I think you'll find that it is only in your narrow little "I hate
religion and you should, too" view of the world that religion is easy to
eradicate. Call it charlatanry, foolishness, stupidity or whatever
insult you may want to hurl at it, but the persistence of religious
belief across virtually every society in the history of the world
suggests that your belief that religion can be easily eradicated puts
you in a miniscule minority.

that optical sight is a big advantage in surviving to reproduce. The
branch humans developed on was not the optimal design but like most
things was good enough.
