I don't know how one would refute religion.  It's a near universal
feature of human cultures.

Rather than refute something that is a widespread feature of humans, I
would think it more important to understand how the psychological
mechanisms that result in religions (i.e., religious memes) evolved.

At some point in the past, having these mechanisms must have improved
the survival of genes for the mechanisms.

I hope the logic here is not beyond the average person on this list.
