These are good, but I think it’s important to overcome the viewpoint that those who think like ‘us’ are somehow superior for seeing past the facade. Not implying that OP or anyone else does this, but it is a trap that is easily fallen into.

‘Religion is for the weak’ in particular strikes me as narrow minded. The religions of the world constitute the groundwork for the very philosophy that you’re writing about: elightenment. I think it is the improper and far too literal interpretation of religion that creates the problem. We have to be careful not to allow our ego to place us above others simply because we see the world in a way that we deem as better. Otherwise we are part of the problem.
