At a conservative estimate there are around 5,000 different religious groups inhabiting the planet.
Each of these think their deity is the real deal and anyone who thinks otherwise is crazy. As a consequence they also consider themselves superior. This is one of the many problems with single faith schools. Watch the excellent Derry Girls to illustrate this!
In fact the success of religion is directly proportional to the failure of education. Faith is the antithesis of education. Faith is blindly believing something you have been told. It is finite. Education is about continuing to learn about the world as our knowledge and understanding of science develops. It is infinite.
To say faith can co-exist with education is a ridiculous notion. One that should have been binned decades, if not centuries ago.
