Good conversation on why religions is not only bullshit, it is dangerous

The Four Horsemen: The Discussion that Sparked an Atheist Revolution  Foreword by Stephen Fry - Stephen King, Charlaine Harris, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel C. Dennett, Richard Dawkins

I have watched the Youtube video, but reading it is even better. As it slow down the conversation enough to rethink some of the good points made. 


All religions are bullshit. No doubt about that. But is it dangerous? The conversation go from how to criticize religion and came to the conclusion that there is no polite way to tell a religious person that what they believe is pure bullshit. The conversation then lead to what make religion dangerous, and which religion is the most dangerous. 


Really enjoy it. Religion is horrible by product of human who need explanation. It then turned into something more nasty. Christianity is a horrible nasty religion that lead its followers to do horrible things without feeling remorse. The same effect of Islam on its followers. Only reason could save mankind from the destructive force of religions. Once it infected the mind, it is hard to get rid of. So, could human wake from this nightmare of religion? It is yet wait to be seen. But there is still hope.
