9. The Bible is full of lies formulated and used to manipulate and dominate people by liars.

Not suggesting Bible should be burned but properly educated.

I've read several versions of the Bible plus many books Biblical history by authors like Pagels, Scholem, etc. Have literally 100s of scholarly and collector quality books.

Main use of organized religions is to "otherize" and justify mistreatment or unfair treatment of people who won't or cannot comply or are just in the way. Convenient tool for bullies and haters, however subtle. Convenient tool for politics. Why the USA has separation of church and state, the Founding Fathers were not perfect but got religion correct. Where one finds religions, one finds victims. Christianity and Islam for example.
