This chapter begins with a discussion of the origin of religion. It then considers the limits of religious tolerance in the sense of the conditions in which believers of a religion will be tolerant of people who do not share this religion. It then turns to the limits of religious tolerance in another sense: to what extent should religious views be tolerated, that is, be legally permitted to be publicly expressed and practiced, by secular people?

Keywords:   religion, tolerance, science, believers
