Not only am I an atheist, but I am a anti-theist. Religion has proved negative many times throughout history. Although religion does great things, can any of these things not be accomplished without religion? Good and moral people will do good and moral things, while sinister and unmoral people will do sinister and unmoral things, but if you want a good person to do sinister things you need religion. Only religion could see a newborn baby as a work in progress, and to complete the baby you have to saw and cut it's genitalia a bit. Only religion could make a few fundamentalists kill thousands of innocent people in order to obtain a desired afterlife. Only religion could blind people of rationality, critical thinking and evidence. Religion was mankind's first attempts at understand our enviroment, and since it's the first it's the worst. People should stop giving the religious the benefit of the doubt as they continue to unfulfill their burden of proof.
