Religion is a virus on mankind that draws it's power from the ultimate intimidation:  The endless threat of going to hell if you don't submit or physical punishment such as family banishment, delimberment, or worse.
I wish the earth would get hit by another 6-mile wide meteor soon so that the few survivors will think twice about believing all that crap!!
I am amused at one argument of many religious zealots:  That athiests can't see the forest for the trees.
I would argue they cannot and will not see the world as it is because they are blinded by all of the virus which is religion.  And like any virus, it's self-replicating and intrusive of the original body (trying to force it's own DNA structure on the cell).  It's a sickness, nothing more.
It will pass someday or we will perish from this earth.
