    Feb 6 2013: Religion is totally irrelevant if continues to wreak havoc in the world by impersonating political manifestos and economic ideals, which as we are slowly coming to realise, are devoid of any sense of morality.

    If religion's connection with the earth and all life is at a genuinely spiritual level, yet still has the capacity to embrace scientific advances - then yes, it would be extremely relevant because the capacity for both matches the morphology of a balanced human mind. Such balance should be the start point of any sense of morality.
