One of The Thousands of Reasons Why Religion Is Bad For You

Based on lots of debates with believers, I came to understanding one of the tactics commonly used after all the other ones have been lost is to argue what is the point of taking something harmless away which gives people motivation or hope. There are countless reasons why faith has negative consequences and one of the best ones I have ever heard is by Sam Harris. For some of you who might not know him he is an American author, philosopher, public intellectual, and neuroscientist, as well as the co-founder and CEO of Project Reason. 

In this video there is also the great Richard Dawkins who is an English ethologist, evolutionary biologist and author. He is an emeritus fellow of New College, Oxford, and was the University of Oxford's Professor for Public Understanding of Science. He is also vice president of the British Humanist Association. 

Also in this video we have  Vilayanur Subramanian Ramachandran is a neuroscientist known for his work in the fields of behavioral neurology and visual psychophysics. He is the Director of the Center for Brain and Cognition, and is currently a Professor in the Department of Psychology and the Neurosciences Graduate Program at the University of California, San Diego.
