And I just wanna add bacause I said that I'm religious, that I'm also Orthodox Christian which is different from others in the most of the things you guys mentioned (for example our priests bang girls, get married have kids etc.)

I personally think people are deluded when there is so much evidence that a higher being cannot exist.
This is  Monotheism - the theology that 'God' is a singular being seperate to us. And it's interesting that a lot of the reaction to religion in this thread is aimed at Christianity and Islam - both Monotheistic. Both deal in absolutes and are generally narcissistic to other belief structures. 

I find Pantheistic religions (where  God is omnipresent in the Universe) such as Buddhism and Taosim more interesting because they teach that Truth can only really be found within - Not from external, unchallengable dogma as taught by Monotheistic religions. Not saying that Pantheism is perfect or correct or anything, but I think the general philosophy is on the right track.

Having been raised in a hardcore conservative Christian family, I'm really thankful I live in secular society - even if it is imperfect.
