How Religion Turns Humanity Into A Teenager

The typical teenager often thinks they know everything and the world revolves around them, and as a result of such thinking, that they are both special and invincible. By convincing humanity that it is the ultimate reason for the entire universe, that the Bible, the Quran, or other sacred "texts," convey the divine eternal truths of an omnipotent, omniscient God, and that we all have eternal souls that will live forever (in heaven or hell, depending on how many people you "sell" you religion to in an Amway-style salvation scheme), religions compound this childish thinking into adulthood.

And in the same way the teenager who mistakenly believes they are invincible and know everything engages in self destructive behavior, so the religions that teach humanity to believes their soul is eternal and they know eternal "truth," leads such "believers" to engage in similar such self destructive behaviors.

Religion, therefore, is often a denial of reality out a preference for a fairy tale that  a gov't called "God" and his Church will promise us a utopian salvation in the next life, in exchange for our spiritual and mental enslavement in this one. And it turns adults into children who would murder the whole world if it will win them a ticket to paradise.
