A perfect example of why belief in God according to religion is foolish in the form of science fiction.  In this episode of Star Trek:  The Next Generation “The Devils Due” it illustrates the example a rational person can see of how it has been humans not God that has shaped history, and superstition just allows you to be conned.  As was stated prior “Any sufficient amount of technology is indiscernible from magic” – Arthur C. Clark.  Watch it for yourself.
