<quoted text>I wouldn't call God nothing. That is taking Gods name in vain and is deadly, it's considered a sin against Gods person. Those are the deadliest sins you can commit. You are making yourself an enemy of God which means certain death.
Poor God gets his little feelings hurt if someone calls him names or suggests he doesn't exist.
Your deity is a myth.

There will always be some fuckwits looking desperately for kinship... but maybe less than 10% would join a religion? Or do you think much less than 10% would join?

Many US believers think it is god's will that they get ill, so they can be cured using treatments not available to the poor.

You make the common mistake of assuming that scientific investigation and the bible are somehow at odds with each other.
Yet science is impossible without the foundation of God as revealed in the bible.
Science is the observation of the universe that God has created.
Not God itself...
Simply and laughably false. Science is based on the fact that things exist. You believe this is due to a deity, but that is not a required assumption to be able to do science. In fact, the actual observations of reality often directly contradict the Biblical descriptions.

No, it is a preconception you have convinced yourself is obvious. It is, however, false. Revelation is simply another word for a snow-job.

Of course.
Naturalistic empiricism runs on this idea.
You can determine truth based on the absolute authority of your reason.
Do you deny this?
I deny that empiricism relies on the reasoning of a single person. No single person or group of people have 'absolute authority'. In fact, the authority for empiricism is actually in the observations, not in human reasoning.

Next, the strategy of empiricism is to eliminate falsehoods, not actually to find the truth. But by requiring all hypotheses to be testable (in other words, there would be a way to show them wrong by observation if they are, in fact, wrong), we guarantee over time that all falsehoods are, in fact, eliminated.

How did you arrive at such an all encompassing position?
Rational deduction based on observations. The hypothesis of a deity is not required and can be dispensed with.

Ah yes, the one thing that all religions boil down to - threats.
