Saying that religion causes death and destruction and not immediately following up with the athiestic goals of Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot is pure hypocrisy on your part.
Sober up, then do some reading on Zoroastrianism/The Vedic texts/any non-abrahmic faiths to begin with. For Christianity, I recommend starting with St. Thomas Aquinas. What you, along with what many other people consider Christianity was actually dumbed down for peasants back in the day. Right now it just seems like you're philosophizing about something you don't have a clue about, which makes you sound inexplicably ignorant. You need to learn the difference between the belief in just a god and the actual theology of religion. This is too much to spoonfeed to one person so basically: Just because something sounds stupid to you does not invalidate its existence.
