Religion is the cause of all evil? Why? Religion has always existed since humans appeared and so did evil, therefore religion caused evil. All criminals are religious or know someone who is.

Religion is human made because it started after humans appeared. Also, there are inconsistencies in the bible. Therefore, religion is evil and untrue.

So much is so wrong that I'm convinced that you're trolling. Without wasting my time too much, there's this:
"Religion has always existed since humans appeared" - jh1234l
"[Religion] started after humans appeared" - jh1234l

There are many problems, injustices and wrongs performed in the name of religion. But no single cause explains all "evil". Religion seems to be the foremost influence which will drive otherwise good people do to things which are decidedly, not good.

I was parodying the angry atheists flaming in Youtube comment sections.
