"A religious idea is just an idea somebody had a long time ago, and claimed to have received from God. It does not have a different status to other ideas; it is not surrounded by an electric fence none of us can pass." - Johann Hari

This is such an under statement.

Just an example: anyone, who has vision of being told by an imaginary god to kill and burn his/her son as an offering, will be admitted to a psychiatric hospital today [Genesis 22]. Killing some one, one's own son in particular, as a test of faith is rubbish. That testing idea promotes blind faith and is counter to the advancement of human kind. The status of such religious idea should be the lowest of all stupid ideas. Anyone believing in such crazy idea as words of god is even more so.
