The one I would had put is its close mindedness.

Where if the bible stats that if 2+2=5. That means all math and science is wrong and they will try and force school teachers and scientists to teach that as well.

THAT i s the ugliest quality in religion.

Arrogance and willful ignorance.

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

You don't really have the answer up there that I would have picked: Convincing people to engage in huge amounts of self-deception to stave off the cognitive dissonance.

Really, almost everything else stems from that. If they'd just look at it and say "yeah, I don't see how this is any more credible than Greek, Norse, or Egyptian mythology" and move on with their lives, all of that other shit would fall into place. No one who thinks Greek mythology is a cool collection of stories from a culture with different sensibilities kills anyone over it.

The ugliest quality is quite simple; the existence of religion.

How can anyone become an atheist when we are all born with no beliefs in the first place? We are atheists because we were born this way.

Humans evolved with flawed perceptions so I do not see that as being an possible reality. Religion however can be put on a leash and have our eyes kept on it so it does not become abusive.

How has that been working for humanity so far? The Crusades? Al Queda? ISIS?

Ehhh isn't that basically a side-effect of completely trusting the bible?

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.
