Atheist Fantasies

The latest episode of Family Guy has Stewie and Brian traipsing through the multiverse. There are several gems, but the first alternate universe they visited stood out for obvious reasons. This universe is more advanced than Stewie and Brian's (and ours?) because Christianity never existed. Here's a snippet of dialogue.
Brian: "Where are we?"

Stewie: "This is Quahog Brian, same year, same time. But in this universe Christianity never existed, which means the dark ages of scientific repression never occurred and thus humanity is a thousand years more advanced. Ergo, muscular genetically perfect pigs."
It's too bad they didn't explore the universe more. Also interesting to see that the non-religious universe is just as sexist as our own.
