Day 4: 15 Day Atheist Challenge

Do you think religion is obsolete and should be wiped completely off the face of the earth, or does some good come out of it?

Say what? I think religion is unnecessary, but my general take on it is that if it gives you peace, some direction in life, or you are unable to control yourself in public without the threat of hell or promise of heaven, then go ahead and be religious.

Much evil has been done in the name of religion, but I don't think that has anything to do with religious teachings. Evil people have distorted and used many religious beliefs to get people to do their bidding, but that is the fault of those people, and not of religion per se.

Many other people have cited the teachings of their faith to do enormous good, such as building hospitals and schools, and providing relief to those in need. Like any tool, its all in how you choose to use it.
