Hi. Jewish atheist here. Just to clarify, religion is not always 100% positive in people's lives. How about being saddled with original sin the second you are born? Yes, there are positive aspects, but those things that are positive can happen in non-religious as well as religious settings and institutions. The dilemma for me is whether or not we teach people things that are not true, while devoting a great deal of effort and pageantry into proclaiming they are true. This is lying.
