Ideally all irrational thinking, like religion, will become obsolete.

Being irrational is not a virtue and quoting random people out of context and often in contradiction to their wider point is not arguing otherwise.

For all the reasons the authors define, religion will always exist to satisfy the need to believe which is inherent in the self-aware beings humans are. Life would be infinitely more difficult were we to believe in nothing. But belief is a construct of the mind that may or may not relate to reality. Religions that relate poorly will not survive in the long run.
