huge topic. very many reasons. better suited to the podium or via pm. basically because it restricts inquiry, is unprovable and uninteresting, no religion has any claim to truth, all are obviously full of falsehoods, religious education is indoctrination and not a process of leading people towards inquiry, religions make false claims about ownership of 'good', and all are based on 'us and them', which only serves to create divisions.
if you really want to get in to this, pm me. i don't think too many people here want me to start spouting off on religion again.
