How about this: we get all the holy rollers, and the holy warriors, all the religious fanatics to chip in, to finance a colony on Mars. Then those of us who don't have any bronze age imaginary friends can move there, and the god loonies can have at each other.

If you think about, one generation of religiously motivated denial of science will put it beyond their power to ever interfere with us.

@Setanta,
I like the idea. I've thought about drafting recruits for a glorious, evangelizing journey to our closest star, Alpha Centauri. It's only 4 light--as opposed to heavy--years away, and how famous they would be on their return. That would be somewhere over 100,000 years.

However, the Bronze age was a very enlightening era both spiritually and scientifically. The sexigesimal time system--based on the number 60, used both in clocks and maps--was invented, for instance. For our recruits, the Iron Age is more appropriate.

@Setanta,
If you're signing up for a trip to Mars, I'll chip in. I'll even provide a year's supply of coffee
