I have noticed that many people on this list engage in "religion bashing". Most of the accusations against religion on this list are unfounded or unfair. For example, ridiculing "faith" as belief in something regardless of proof purposely ignores the meaning most people use for the word.
Not to say that most religious people aren't ignorant, but it's not justified to condemn all religion based on its adherrents. You couldn't dismiss extropianism, for example, just because no one has been completely extropist.
