if you look at the worlds top scientists, those in all of the international scientific societies, only 7% of them actually have some form of religious beliefs. out of those 7%, most are not part of some organized religion and do not follow scripture.
religion is not only untrue, it is a detriment to the world, the number one reason for hate and killing.

'get over it'
I think your second statement is a bit more subjective than your first one. I think intolerance, ignorance, selfishness, and a lack of compassion are the reasons for hate and killing, and from there we have to ask whether religion promotes that or not. And I think it is there that we will find the issue split. It's for sure an important discussion, but I'm not sure if it's completely relevant for this thread.
It's interesting though that Lin was with Intervarsity and not PTC (ex. CFC) at Harvard. Intervarsity has what some would describe as more "liberal" elements in their theology, in terms of creation and women's roles.
EDIT: I'm not even sure in what capacity PTC is on Harvard, they're not directly listed on Harvard's student groups website. IVCF apparently had 8 chapters at Harvard when Lin was there.
