thing is, I have watched the matrix, there is a VAST difference to a collective computer connection in the brain, allowing the world to be able to connect to the internet and the likes through thoughts. And Artificial intelligence becoming sentient and destroying our world, using what remains of our race that created them as their batteries.

They created the Matrix to passify the humans while they used them as living batteries, it was the AI creating a program to try and slave humans into dumbfoundedness. Rather then one collective conciousness.

As a society? Well stamping out religion based ignorance so the above could move forward unopposed would be a good start.
Because removing religion is clearly the way to solve all mans problems.

There's noting wrong with religion. People tend to put their own ideas into things which makes it difficult for the rest of us.

Let me clarify...

An individual's faith is for the most part fine with me. What I have issue with is when an organized religion tries to impose a view that is detrimental to saving lives or otherwise progress.

Principally in the form of trying to subvert the education system, trying to block the rights to certain peoples' marriage, getting in the way of vaccinations and stem cell research...

And that tiring the world is ending rhetoric...

So an individuals faith is ok but you take issue with organised groups.

Yet when I said I was a Christian but that I don't particularly agree with the church or the bible (as you said a book written by many people, so what makes their opinion more holy than mine) you took issue with me.

So, are you ok with an individuals faith or not?

I really hate to break it to you but something is going to give. Right now the US is wound past the breaking point, with people terrified of terrorists and constantly being pressured by the cost of living, it's pretty much a perfect setup for a revolution.

I dread to think what would happen in the event of another major war.

World war 1 started in less then two months. All it takes is for the right people to do the wrong thing and that will set people off.

Not really, this country is not close to breaking and cost of living is nothing compared to other countries. You are making mountains out of mole hills. The US is doing fine, not as pampered as it was but no where close to falling apart. This is not the first 'economic crisis' they happen every decade. Then people learn to balance their checkbooks again it quiets down again.
