Again, ask the people in line at the soup kitchen if religion has provided any significant benefits.

And petroleum precedes the automobile. Nonetheless, automobiles use petroleum.

You seem to be really grasping at straws trying to put down religion.

Quite the opposite. I am pointing out how theists are grasping at straws to improve the image of religion.

This is why homeless people should thank human decency for their free soup, not religions.
