Y...Yeah it is. Even in a best case scenario, you have a population that believes in something inherently unprovable, and being it cannot logically exist along side science, then you just have a real shitty population of idiots. Idiots will exist with or without religion, but with religion existing, they merely produce even more stupidity than they would without religion, because it only takes a few of them to get into a position of power, and then bam, you have a cult following or whatever.
It's a domino effect of idiocy.
I was there, and I didn't bother with your points, because I've been over and over and over it all. Remember when I mentioned Rukh? You're doing more or less exactly what he did a year or so ago. And there was a dude before him that did the exact same thing before that, and on and on.
Because people believing in something that can't be proven or disproven causes problems in society. That's why new inventions and new scientific discoveries are made every day.
Science can't live alongside religion logically? I think it can. Observe:
Person 1: "I think that money grows on trees, because my religion says so."
Person 2: "Hmm, let's test that".
Person 1: "Sure, it'd be nice to try and confirm that"
Person 2: *grows a tree supposedly said to grow money* *no money is on it*
Person 1: "Well, I guess that means money doesn't grow on trees. My religion was wrong about that."
Person 1: *still follows religion, but crosses that out as a thing to believe in*
Person 2:" There's a new scientific discovery! Recent evidence shows that the Earth may have been created during a great event in space called the big bang!"
Person 1: "Cool story bro, let me know when you can confirm it without question like you did that tree"
That is literally how I work things in my mind. I am person 1.
Before anyone says anything: This is by far the stupidest argument I've ever made. If you can pick holes in it, do it, I give you whole hearted permission to do so and in fact I want you to do so. Because this argument sucks and I want to refine it.
