Very odd post, but I will reply out of interest.
I wouldn't personally go out of my way to bash anyone of religious belief, but I will put my ideas on it all out there, and debate (in a good manner)
with people who are interested. I am not interested in arguing or getting violent over these beliefs though.
But I can understand why people like Richard Dawkins do. In the same way that people who think they know how to do something better will show you how,
he believes that they are being blindly led along a path of lies two thousand years old (with Christianity for example).
I believe Science to be the modern day answer to the questions that various religions attempted to answer for centuries, or as close to answering them
as possible. I consider the written texts of religion a way of controlling age old societies, and attempting to guide them to a 'better life'. (Of
course Wars still happened, people still killed, raped and were generally nasty to others despite religious belief systems).
I would not say that religion has been a totally bad thing for the human race up to the modern day, religious wars/killings/sacrifices apart. It
helped to set up social structures and lead us to where we are now. Sadly, I do believe that a lot of brainwashing goes on in children from an early
age, just so that the religions will continue to exist.
In the same way that you tell a child that Santa exists, and they believe you, until you tell them he doesn't. If you were to tell a child that, for
example, the Bible is true, and Jesus existed, and God exists, until the child was 7, and at the same time tell him God and Santa BOTH don't exist,
they would believe you. But the indoctrination of the religious texts continues past that age, no 'that was actually a lie' comes forth.
If the Santa story were to be continued for the next generation, we'd have a generation of adults believing in Santa (lest they be told otherwise.)
if you get my drift.
Again, I do not wish to offend anyone, or mock their beliefs, I am merely stating my beliefs.
