Traditional religions have existed for more than a thousand years, and are usually based on a system of illogical, incompatible dogmas, which can't be modified without killing the whole concept. This is especially true for more conservative flavors such as integrism.
One of the concepts that has resisted time, in many religions, is God: it is traditionally presented as good guy (except that He is bad with those believing in the wrong religion), personified as an old, wise, immortal man who never makes any mistakes. This concept is even older than the idea that the Sun rotates around the Earth, and certainly sounds as awkward.
It is true that most believers do not believe in this version of God nor in many other dogmas and fairy tales that are dictated by the religious diaspora - they have they own faith, different from the official Book. Many people attend church for social reasons only.
So my question is: can you believe in this old fashion model of God and be analytic? It seems incompatible, yet many analytic people make illogical and inconsistent decisions at work all the time while deploying what they think are great mathematical models. I'm wondering if as more and more people start truly thinking analytically, more and more old-fashioned belief systems will die, and be replaced by more modern systems such as mathematology (a religion with no God), just like old theories about the universe were eventually abandoned.
