I'm not just an unbeliever, I detest religion!  Why?  It's not just that religion burned people as witches.  Religion CONTINUES to separate us as "gangs", feeding our gang mentality, promoting hatred and wars!  I guess you could say that I detest war, thus I detest religion.  There are other reasons to detest religion.  I will be interested in hearing others reasons.

Yes folks, all that and more convinces me to detest religion!  (I often find myself wondering how it must have felt to be a poor, old person faced with accusations of being a witch, facing drowning.  It isn't much better today!)  Today, a gang of the religious shout and scream here and there and we get an Iraq war!

My first thought is what DarkBlack said.  I still morn the time and money I wasted on falsehoods in the 50 years I was a believer.

I also like what you all said, and Pat gave me a smile with "Other than that, it's swell!"  : )

Sexism and I like Pat's list and agree with everything you all have listed.
I'm glad to be an Atheist!

Promotion of ignorance, superstition, bigotry, fear, hatred, racism, murder, denial of fundamental principles of human decency, misogyny, child molestation, unmitigated greed, and the imposition of power over others at the heel of a jack-boot. Other than that, it's swell!

You're right, Dark Black.  Everyone religion murders might have had reasonable descendants!  No wonder we so detest religion!  (I wish my sister could see these realities!!!)

I have a few reasons, which include yours.

Right at the top of my list is the loss of potential.

What I might of done instead of my past religious activities or the monks, nuns and priests wasting thier lives (at least some of them could be doing something useful)? Religion put science back by 1000 years, keeps getting in the way and countless people's potential has been denied by indoctronation. Finally, every non-believer they burnt did not have any more decendants not to indoctornate.
