10. That's the key question, and one that a religious believer can't answer.

It's a point that has been driven home by a number of non-believers - here is Greta Christina's most excellent summary:

I'm realizing that everything I've ever written about religion's harm boils down to one thing.

It's this:

Religion is ultimately dependent on belief in invisible beings, inaudible voices, intangible entities, undetectable forces, and events and judgments that happen after we die.

It therefore has no reality check.
