Well, IMO, it is certainly interesting and -potentially- extropic to discuss the psychology and sociology of religion, and consider the possibilities and merits of attaching social structures based on dynamic processes and self-organization in the place of the current religious structures. (Much in the same way we take advantage of the body's chemical receptors and design custom drugs to exploit them.)
