Two reasons.

Bad ideas exist to be destroyed. By questioning things which appear counter-intuitive or wrong to me and weighing the evidence for and against I inform myself and by informing myself I grow as a person. Other people are welcome to believe as they wish, but they should not expect or demand silence in return for irrational rubbish.

Public policy is still built on the edicts of bronze age herders. This seems downright dangerous to me and by adding my voice to those pointing out that irrational rubbish is just that and has no place in public policy I hope to influence governance towards rationality and towards supplying public services according to the needs of society and not according to the dictates of an imaginary and immoral dictator.
