What's worse is that atheists jump on people who believe in a certain religion, calling them stupid or whatnot when many scientists today follow a religion. Would it affect our further progress in the field of science, and believe it or not, certain religions can bring about a lot of good. Take Christianity for example, the ten commandments tell us that we are not allowed to backanswer our parents. Would we really want our children to speak rudely to us? This debate is just spiteful, and can only do more harm than good. What do people ever benefit from winning an argument, what will you say? " Yes, I'm right!" And, the entire, ancient debate would be over just like that. Really, aren't we all like children bickering, squabbling and sometime fighting to some extent just over a simple statement to say who's right and what's wrong.
