If shouting and speaking in tongues helps you to be a better person, then more power to you. But when the emotion is used to escape logic and science and used to manipulate people, I take issue.

can be the worst religion....

everything exists in manipulation of another.  i must admit money grubbing preachers have a special place, I surmise this is due to their proffesed intent contrasted with the lexus tint; and, the shape of the people often seeking their help.  seems particularly bad.

I don't think so. Science and logic can be observed. Religious doctorine requires belief.

Don't believe everything they tell you.  There's a lot of fiction in science.

True. There is a lot of fiction in science, but it still has to be proven. There is no denying the world is round or 2 + 2=4.

Yeah, but there are many things currently accepted as scientific "fact" that have yet to be objectively proven.
