""Religion must die for mankind to live.
I agree with this, although in this case I see "religion" as a euphemism for whatever mechanism it is that causes humans to lose our individuality for the sake of belonging to a group.  In that sense, religion is similar to nationalism, or racism, or any other concept that we use to create divisions that allow us to justify horrifying acts against those who don't belong to our group.  Religion is, IMO, the most pernicious, because it adds an external and mystical force that is all-knowing and capable of vicious reprisal against any who don't act unhesitatingly in "his name," regardless of what they are asked to do.
