And as I've said before, most religions equate the intellect and the soul.

If something that is suppose to be eternal but doesn't do shit sound kinda useless.
But it's eternity doesn't need a "use". It just arises naturally from the nature of what the soul is. Just as the existence of the decomposition/regeneration cycles of biology are technically unnecessary, yet they still exist due to the nature of organic things.

"Absolute tolerance is altogether impossible; the allegedly absolute tolerance turns into ferocious hatred of those who have stated clearly and most forcefully that there are unchangeable standards founded in the nature of man and the nature of things."
