Well, you can't prove or disprove the existence of god, period. Religion on the other hand is a different story. Most religions are contridictions of one another so either all of them are wrong or all of them except one is wrong, in that situation we could never really know which is right so logically it would make sense not to believe in any ( since believing in the right one would be statistically unlikely anyways) since there is no evidence, equally, for any relgion.

Now, Many people think that life and the universe is "fine tuned" that is wrong and i could give you examples but the list is long. However i do believe this universe is special because it allows under special circumstances life and remarkably consciousness. However, i believe this is purley on the basis of natural means. In other words we only exist because the universe's laws allow us the possibility to exist..and since the universe is so massive, life is going to spring up somewhere. So, ultimately we only perceive our existence because we exist. Anything we believe about the supernatural world is wishful thinking at best.

Although, It is fine to believe in God, when you start "predicting" and stating facts about the natural world on the basis of those beliefs than that is when you start to have a problem with rational human beings. That is essentially what religion is. A man made concept about an abstract idea. Religion and science are no different in that they are both domains of professed truths. Science is just more rational and therefore makes rational people immune to Dogma.

And then take in the religions that contradict themselves... If there's a single wrong statement in a religion's "sacred text" then I think it's safe to count that religion out.
