There is no evidence for a god and scientific discoveries suggest strongly there isn't one. I also believe that religion is dangerous nonsense that has been used in all sorts of nasty ways by people with ulterior motives.
John Peel sums up quite nicely my views on God and religion;
"I have to admit that I didn't really believe in God, but imagined this no bar to progress in the church of England. I secretly believe - and still do, I suppose - that no-one actually believes in God any more than they believe in the Tooth Fairy or Inspector Morse, but I have never been awfully good at defending this position in debate. But, I mean, come on...!"
But a more powerful argument to use against the evangelical religious right is that Jesus was in fact a bit of a lefty. How else could you describe someone who said and did the following;
(Matthew 1923-26; Mark 1023-27; Luke 1824-27).
"Again I say to you, It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."
"You cannot serve God and wealth"
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasurer is, there your heart will be also."
When the rich man asked Jesus how he could get into heaven, Jesus replied "You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me."
