What is religion?
Religion is a man-made organization that humanity has outgrown. Religion holds back scientific progress. Religion brings out the worst of people. Religion is a destructive force that poisons the minds of people everywhere it is established.

Quotes about Religion and the Deities:
“Is man merely a mistake of God’s? Or God merely a mistake of man?”
“If every trace of any single religion were wiped out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again.”
— Penn Jillette
“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence comes evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”
“God is an ever-receding pocket of scientific ignorance.”
— Neil deGrasse Tyson
