If religion did no harm I wouldn't oppose it that much, since we humans are incurably religious. To the degree a particular religion is harmful is to the same degree I oppose it. Since I think surrendering ourselves to a faith without sufficient objective evidence is harmful, I oppose all religions. At the very least, religions are irrelevant and unhelpful. At the most, religions cause a great deal of harm by providing a fanatical motivation to steal land, enslave others, torture heretics, burn people alive and kill them.

Now let's be honest here.

What would convince Hindu's who worship Lord Shiva that they are wrong? A billion of them were raised in their religious culture to believe, and A BILLION PEOPLE CANNOT BE WRONG, right?! They have proof their prayers to Lord Shiva are answered, and they ONLY COUNT THE HITS RATHER THAN THE MISSES?! They FEEL CERTAIN of their faith, which is due to some strong inner vibes of a PERSONAL EXPERIENCE of Lord Shiva himself.

Christians will say the content of their faith is different, and that's true. But this doesn't show their is faith true. It only shows their faith is different. The similarities are astounding and largely unacknowledged. Christians who worship Yahweh and Jesus are most likely raised in their Christian cultures, and in them more than two billion people cannot be wrong, right?! They too only count the hits from prayers rather than the misses, and they too feel certain of their faith due to strong inner vibes of a personal experience with their God.
