Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS

Comparing yourself to others can be a bad thing if they are happier or richer than you.  You will not be happy for them but envious.  Comparing yourself to others is still a bad thing if their lives are terrible.

A is a bad person horrible. You may make yourself feel good or better by comparing yourself to him or her. But that says a lot about you. What exactly? It says you have her nasty traits but you try to justify them or make less of how bad they are by thinking of her as worse. You think her misdeeds get the attention not yours. That is what you want to happen.

Try another experiment. A is suffering a lot . You may make yourself feel good or better by comparing yourself to him or her. But that says a lot about you. What exactly? You are saying its a relief that they have the worst suffering.

We all compare - that is the illusion of the benevolent human race gone!

God has to be to blame for free will does not excuse how so many, in fact all, are that selfish.  To worship God implies you find him in the people he made - the real motive to worship him is ostensibly because he is good but that is not what the evidence says!  To thank him is to thank him for this animalistic selfish two-faced species!
