Why is religion a threat? Because most people of "faith" are too certain about things. I don't want certainty. I like science. I like thinking my research will be destroyed by better theories and then those will fall to even better ones. It's a process that never ends, while religion claims to be at the end of the questions: they "know" the answers and my questions are invalid if they challenge some silly poem or prose composed by a "prophet of God."
I like not knowing, never being sure. It means I can keep guessing.
