What is your opinion of religion? Is the world a better or worse place because of it?

I'm an atheist, as is my husband and his best friend. We know several devout Christians who are perfectly reasonable human beings. We also, unfortunately, know several who truly believe that "if you're not with us, you're against us"--which is to say, the "only" way to have a moral compass is to believe in a magical fairy in the sky. If you don't, clearly, at worst, you're a devil worshiper, at best, you "believe in nothing." Those (ahem) Christians don't/can't seem to understand that believing in science is a completely different proposition from "believing in nothing."
