Religions of all kinds teaches us in one hand to be good to one another, obey it's moral rules... and then in the other hand tells to smite the non-believers, to disembowel them, bleed them out and hang them from posts.
You don't know many religions then. An putting everyone into the same box is a little narrowminded sorry.
Religion is a crutch for weak and scared
So your telling me because I don't believe that I evolved from a fish, an believe that there is more to my existance than that, I'm weak and scared? I'd like to say thats a load of shit. You tell a child that they evolved from some random protein strings coming together an a few million years later they became a fish and a few million after that they changed into something else, and they laugh at you. Strange that adults believe it through and through. Your telling me that you honestly without a doubt believe that you evolved? It's strange that over the past what at least 3000 years that nothing is still evolving? A little strange I'd say, don't see no animals evolving either. Now you might bring up adaptation an Darwin yea, but if I was a 100meter sprinter my body would adapt to being better at that, doesn't mean I evolved. An even more strange that before the Precambrian explosion there aint no fossil records, so out of nowhere Organic material turned up, then it began to evolve. I don't believe the crap that you get spoon fed in school these days, people need to go out and look up there own opinions instead of coming to a conclusion based on something they learn when there like 11 years old. Weak and scared? Having hope is weak and scared? Where did you come up with that?
Religion is a medieval tool of social control when the rule of law hadn't yet established itself.
Law was well established. Society wasn't. An the Law back in the bible times was rather strict. 600+ Laws, there all in the bible, and they cover pretty much everything. I'd say the law was established. Just because humans come in and mess it up doesn't mean that God is in the wrong.
illogical, mis-guided teachings...
If I understand this right, people belive religon and other people believe in the theory of evolution, but according to what your saying doesn't religon then become it's self a theory, the theory of god, now to my understanding there is a logic behind every theory. So saying that it's illogical isn't right really. An mis-guided teachings? Again humans mess up the teachings,its not the teachings that are mis-guided, the people are. An not by the teachings either, but by there interpretation of the teachings.
Religion is holding humanity up from uniting under the banner of science, reason and the rule of law.
Do you even know what science is in the bible?
Job 26:10, Prov 8:27, Isaiah 40:22, Amos 9:6. - Earth was round. Yet some nuggets in the 15th Century still believed that the earth was flat. Did they have religon back then hmmmmmmm yes there was. Google it.
The water cycle was not fully understood until about 30 B.C. by a Roman engineer named Marcus Vitruvius according to modern science. Eccl 1:6-7; 11:3; Job 26:8; Amos 9:6 - All mention it an yes those books of the bible were written before 30 B.C
There is just a few things for you to read, before dismissing.
