This is too easy it looks like bait for satire but what the hell.

Religion provides moral guidelines that prevent from doing things that are bad like drug and alcohol which are dangerous for your body.
However many Religions support racism, sexism, murder and torture. Acording to you these things aren't bad?
Also, wild animals can live peacefully (works especially well with ants) with eachother without knowledge of a supernatural creature.
Society can co-exist peacefully without Religion, otherwise crime rates in countries with less theists would have much higher crime rates.
Religion is better than no religion. I'm glad Christianity influenced American law because if it didn't then some of the laws would be immoral and there would be more problems.
*cough* seperation of church and state *cough* if Religion is influencing law then it's unconstitutional.
Also, we've seen what Religion does when it controls the government. All that happens is people are forced into believing something they're not and scientific research that conflicts with Religious belief would be banned.
Religion has no place in the modern world.
