Your thesis huh? Didn't, you know, borrow it from somewhere?Veritas Aequitas wrote: ↑Fri Nov 23, 2018 6:39 am Note my point re this analogy, i.e. Zombie Parasites & Theism;
Watch this Video:These Brain Worms Turn Ants Into Death-Seeking Zombies
Look inside the head of a doomed ant overtaken by a mind-controlling parasite.
Inside the ant, the worms turn deadly. Ants usually get multiple worms at once, and most stay inside the ant’s abdomen.
One worm, however, will takeover an ant’s brain, commanding it to essential seek death. At dusk, ants usually return to their nests.
But the infected zombie ants climb blades of grass and other vegetation, holding on to a plant by its jaws until it gets eaten.
Once it gets eaten, the parasite can then lay eggs in its new mammal host, and begin its dark cycle anew.

Parasitic Mind Control - National Geographic
What is unfortunate for this missionary is once he is killed [if eaten] he cannot lay eggs to implant the natives with his ideology.
The above case is an example of where the zombie parasites of the theist [that missionary] are very active, aggressive and malignant.
The other example of such extreme are the suicide bombers of Islam where SOME Muslims' have been infected with very aggressive zombie parasite that compelled them [subliminally] to sacrifice their lives as suicide bombers.
The above is evidence to support my hypothesis;
Theists are infected with a range of zombie parasites that compelled them [subliminally] to commit a range of irrational acts to the extreme of sacrificing their lives for God [illusory] sake and which is a serious threat to humanity.
You are clearly paraphrasing Dan Dennett's very well known Ted talk, so just do the proper attribution.
