Religion is the root of all evil. Easily said and easily proven so why isn’t it? Answer: it takes thought and the first thing religions teach their followers is to accept without thinking. Atheists, living in a world filled with sheep, have to think to reach a conclusion that there is no god. For our species to stop destroying the world it needs to be led by thinkers not idiots who walk around holding Bibles and wearing crosses and stars and other symbols indicating they are members of the unthinking flock.
