Atheists, would you say religion has had a positive impact on society, or negative?


I'm going to exclude extremists in this question, since both the religious and non-religious agree that they are bad. So, it more so concerns your everyday follower who generally doesn't provoke any hostility. As a whole, do you think religion for them has more of a positive or negative impact? Consider things such as morality, progress, and communal well being.

    I would point out that there has been no shortage of Democrats raping the environment when it profits them.IE: Look at Al Gore the world's biggest hypocrite and his BS carbon exchange.

    All of the "bad" you mention is a product of ego, not religion. Ego perverts religion, science, business and everything else.

    Science studies the products of God's creation (reality). They do a very good job. Spirituality studies the sources of creation. Ignoring reality (science) leads to delusion; ignoring creation (source of reality) does, too.
