Logical. So logical that it hardly needs saying at all, let alone at such length.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Belief is impervious to logic, in fact considers ignoring it a positive virtue.

Logic is water on the duck's back of faith.

Dr. Baruch de Spinoza

"I think all the great religions of the world - Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam and Communism – both untrue and harmful. It is evident as a matter of logic that, since they disagree, not more than one of them can be true. ... I am as firmly convinced that religions do harm as I am that they are untrue." Bertrand Russell, 1957, from My Religious Reminiscences reprinted in The Basic Writings of Bertrand Russell


silver tiger.
I'm not sure belief is impervious to logic.
Dan Barker- he of 'Losing Faith in Faith' has a collection of stories from 25 clergy who have lost their faith. they keep preaching because that's all they know.
