Religion has caused just as much wickedness to the world as it has caused goodness. While many devote Christian monks preserved ancient works through the Dark Ages, it was Christians on a holy Crusade who sacked Constantinople. It's resulted in thousands of people being sacrificed and killed for reasons so stupid you can laugh at them, but churches and monastaries have helped the needy and the sick. At he same time, it's started completely pointless and avoidable wars. I could go on and on about how many good and bad things done in the name of God....

Despite being an atheist, I would have to be fair say it's neither good nor evil overall, but has played and essential role in the history of humanity.
