    I believe that the religion has done most harm to the mankind than anything else. Throughout the history of mankind we have seen that because of the baseless religious assumptions & myths the millions human lives are wasted. If we have given the supreme importance to lives than the religion & GOD then this world have been the wonderful place to live in. The peoples are wasting their time on GOD & religion instead of helping the needy. The scientist are GOD who have made marvellous discoveries & because of which we are living comfortable life & also the precious lives are saved through research & development in medicine science. Every person who helps us in case of need are GOD. When all the people in this world understand this that day will be supreme in the history of mankind.
