2. I view religion as a mental phenomenon...

 

what sustains it is belief after all, faith. Something that is, by definition, unproven and unprovable. The problem is when that faith tries to impose itself on the world, whether in making incorrect claims about the nature of the universe and the things in it, or trying to impose restrictions on the same.
