If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Religious indoctrination is child abuse. The child abusers belong in prison.

At Catholic school (I endured 9 years of it, Kindergarten thru 8th grade) the brainwashing is intense. A big part of that child abuse was "The Catholic Church is the One True Religion" which is an idea I heard a few thousand times. Their logic (the ugly fat nuns) was the Catholic Church is older than the other Christian cults, therefore it is real and the newer cults are false. 

Some people grow up and throw out the ridiculous bullshit. Other people never grow up. Those other people are called Bible thumpers and terrorists.

What happens when two ridiculous cults decide to get violent because the other cult is wrong? A good example is what's going on in Syria right now.

All the trillions of dollars spent on religious wars and spent on defending a country from future religious attacks, maybe there could be some better use for that cash. Like for example scientific progress. Or science education. Or just give it all to me.
