Bill Maher says "RELIGION" :
- is a neurological disorder that justifies crazies and stops people from thinking.
- is a cause of many of society's problems and that the practices of religion are mired in hypocrisy.
- works under the guise of morality but that its tenets generally have nothing to do with morality, that religious prohibitions are being confused with moral law.
- provides answers to questions that "cannot possibly be answered." Questions such as "Where do I go when I die?" or "Is there a heaven?", are impossible to answer. By claiming to have the answers, religion is dishonest and it "stops people from thinking."
