Oh and guess what, logic tells me I just got a whole bunch of people angry, and they are going to want to debate me on this. So im not going to debate anyone here, by simply not replying to any comments that show disagreement, because you are exactly the type of person who I do not want to associate my self with.
So If you don't like what I have to say, then put me on your ignore list, because that is where you are going as well.
The seraph begins by politely nailing Dawkins’s first sleight of hand which, as loads of people have now pointed out, dishonestly bundles all religious belief and practice into one crude bag that supposedly equals fanaticism.
This is rather like suggesting that all science is dangerous because it has brought nuclear weapons; or that all education is mistaken because children have been whipped by so-called educators.
It is child’s play to denounce a subject by pointing to the myriad ways in which it may be misapplied; misuse and misapplication are rife in all areas of human understanding: politics, science, education, medicine, religion. But it is faulty logic to conclude that this is necessarily the fault of the set of ideas being traduced. I attended a primary school where the strap was still applied. Does it follow that I should not have attended primary school? Is psychiatry a bad thing because schizophrenics were once made to take bromide?

Not only religion must be abolished, but other type of sinister wrongdoings such as corrupt politics must end. I agree with you that these will help mankind to become better and have a strong chance of survival, but there are also other things that must change regarding the ways humans express themselves.
Man should strive to be better and violence has to stop. Everyday, people are dying because of something wrong in the world happening so if violence was to end, there won't be anything to argue about. With ending religion and also ending corrupt politics, mankind would finally be a beautiful utopia.
