Never pass up a chance to sit down or relieve yourself.

It's somewhat of a mystery to me why so many people continue to hang onto religion. There are a million holes in the story, yet people cling to it like it's the only possible explanation of life on earth.
Religion is presented as benevolent, but it's actually malevolent. It messes with science, history, health, women's rights, gay rights. Not adhering to it will get you killed in some countries.
Our Founding Fathers were trying to escape religious oppression, and yet millions of Americans want religion - and specifically Christianity, of course - to control the government.
Time to put it in the dustbin of history and use science to help the planet, before it's too late.
If we are honest - and scientists have to be - we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality. The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination. If religion is still being taught, it is by no means because its ideas still convince us, but simply because some of us want to keep the lower classes quiet.
