@Professor Robert, 

You have some valid points, bar the last one. Many religious do not reject to the use of weapons in general.  Most proponents of the NRA are of what religious stance? You guessed Christians. Many world leaders are pro-war and have NO problem ordering their national defence to use weapons of mass destruction. 

So religion doesn't really reject that at all, as a matter of fact I could find plenty of biblical quotes supporting mass destruction and obliteration. 

Such as:

Judges 5:31

"So may all your enemies perish, O LORD! But may they who love you be like the sun when it rises in its strength."

You could challenge someone to a "who has more balls contest" Chuck Norris would still win.

Science once advocated for human eugenics, including the forced sterilization of the mentally or physically handicapped.  Religion objected.

Didn't God send Moses on several genocidal campaigns? How is genocide different then eugenics? Seems to me that eugenics is at least slightly less evil than genocide.

Science argued that some races were less intelligent by virtue of various physical traits.  Religion dissented.

The Samaritans, the Gentiles, the Shiites... All inferior races or groups of people according to their respective religions.

Science experimented on human subjects who were poor, or of a particular racial group, without their consent.   Religion objected.

Religion burned witches and tortured heretics. I'll be generous and call it a tie.

Science advocated for, created, and continues to create weapons of mass destruction.   Religion objects.

Certain religions view weapons of mass destruction as holy weapons.

And, Science is not a united collective of people with one central symbol of leadership. A religion is. You don't have to convince all scientists, only the ones who are straying. In order to get a religion to admit that it's wrong, you have to convince nearly all of them. At least the most pious of them.

The list of things science was once wrong about is long. Equally long is the list of things science has corrected itself on. You see science, unlike religion, has is an ability to listen to those who dissent and present contrary or better evidence and change the standard explanation.

With religion, "the old way is the best way" so intelligent religious people end up standing on their heads vainly attempting to explain, like Trump's hapless "spokespeople," what The Bible really meant.

So, let's start with the many contradictions in The Bible:

Per Davis Goodman:

"...Chuck Norris would still win."

The Earth rotates because Chuck Norris always takes a morning jog.

Chuck Norris once squeezed a lemon and created Donald Thump.

The Mona Lisa is smiling because Chuck Norris let her live.

When Chuck Norris finishes his workout, the gym takes a break.

Chuck Norris died 20 years ago, Death just hasn't built up the courage to tell him yet.

Chuck Norris went skydiving and his parachute failed to open, so he took it back the next day for a refund.

Before going to bed, the Boogeyman always checks his closet for Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris has already been to Mars; that's why there are no signs of life.

Chuck Norris once urinated in a semi truck's gas tank as a joke. That truck is now known as Optimus Prime.

Fear of tight spaces is claustrophobia, fear of Chuck Norris is called Logic!

When the President pushes the big red button, Chuck Norris's cell phone rings.

Chuck Norris counted to infinity - twice.

Chuck Norris can walk on water..,he's not God...the water is just afraid of getting him wet.

Chuck Norris can light a fire by rubbing two ice-cubes together.

I could go on but I feel Chuck Norris wouldn't like it...besides I like breathing. :)
