    literally, science is the bomb but it is also about many other things. Religion has a very specific place where it excels in adding to the comfort of mankind. When it is used to govern people it is less than Ideal.

    No need to be general. Far from all religions turn away from science.

    Science is a good thing. Just saying that religion and science are two views of the same thing.

    If religion had never existed we would be in a very, very boring world.

    No Pyramids, probably no Stone Circles, no meso-American ziggurats, no ancient legends like Beowulf, Epic of Gilgamesh, or fantastic architecture like Hindu temples and Traditional Christian cathedrals built to inspire people about the possibility of a world unseen.

    No bonfire nights in England, no Christmas, Yule, Easter, no Classical art such as the Cistene chapel. No festivals of light in Asia, no holidays (holy days) we'd have no purpose to live beyond procreation. We would exist, but our mental capacity would be stunted for a lack of purpose, even if that purpose is imaginary.

    Then, one has to ask, what is the difference between religion and ideology? The belief that a certain way of life can give us a better life. No industrial revolution, no great literature convincing us to challenge the scientific consensus (which we should, even if we believe it ourselves) because, well, why bother? It wouldn't make a difference.

    Then there is the poor argument that religion precludes critical thinking. Muslims named hundreds of our stars and gave us algorithms and algebra, Hindus gave us our maths, Christians and deists gave us much of the understanding of physics that we have, Stone Age people around the world calculated the cycles of the moon.

    Religion held its purpose when we were nomadic tribesman wandering the Earth and couldn't figure out where lightning or earthquakes came from. Religion, was indeed the catalyst of civilization. But, then we also didn't know where lightning or earthquakes came from.

    A wizard never hitchikes the wrong way, Frodo Baggins. Nor does he hitchike the right way. He hitchikes precisely where he means to.

    Pretty much this. I know some atheists who are great people and friends. There are good and bad people in every group. Theists (to be more general), atheists, black, white and any other group.
