Funnyjunk would be a better place if no-one felt the need to defend their faiths. (Or jab at others'.)

This person doesn't believe the same thing as me: so ******* what?
As long as neither sides are douches about it there won't be a problem.

Atheists, you will not help resolve religious problems by posting anti-religion content: people don't want to give up their religions because they like them. Not because they don't understand science.

Similarly, religious people are doing no favours for each other by whining about it and trying to debate others over the internet.

Religion is dangerous for two main reasons, which is why people should open their eyes. The biggest two of many problems are:
1. They promote ignorance. We have entered an era of society in which scientific progress holds our only means to advance the species. A good example is the dark/ middle ages (actually the same thing). During this time the Catholic church wanted people to do two things: farm and be religious. Only when the Gutenberg printing press came out people had time to read, as books were drastically cheaper.

2. Religions generally cause violence. The crusades and middle eastern instability are good examples. The more ancient (ex. Norse, Greek/ Roman) religions actually advocated violence and had gods of war.

Religion is now obsolete. Humanity has outgrow fairy tales.

It is time to wake up.

Here's some evidence for my first point. Progress cannot my directly quantified, so it is more of a comparison to science now.
