First from the Qur'an

Quran (4:11) - (Inheritance) "The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females" (see also verse 4:176). In Islam, sexism is mathematically established.

Quran (2:228) - "and the men are a degree above them [women]"
Quran (5:6) - "And if ye are unclean, purify yourselves. And if ye are sick or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it" Men are... rub dirt or water on their hands to purify themselves, following casual contact with a woman (such as shaking hands).

Quran (53:27) - "Those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names." So basically there are no female angels.
Quran (4:24) and Quran (33:50) - A man is permitted to take women as sex slaves outside of marriage. Note that the verses distinguishes wives from captives.
Quran (2:223) - "Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will..."

This basically means a man has dominion over his wife's body as he does his land.
Sahih Bukhari (6:301)

"[Muhammad said] 'Isn't it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?' The women replied in the affirmative. He said, 'This is the deficiency in her religion.'"

Women are spiritually deficient since they can't pray during their period
Earlier in the above verse, Muhammad stated that since the testimony of a man is equal to testimonies of two women, it's obvious that women are less intelligent than men.
Sahih Bukhari (2:28) & Sahih Bukhari (54:464) state that the vast majority of hell's occupants are women. In fact, Kanz al-`ummal, 22:10 (a Hadith which Islamic apologists consider as weak) even suggests that 99% of women go to Hell
Sahih Muslim (4:1039) - "A'isha said [to Muhammad]: 'You have made us equal to the dogs and the asses'".

These are the very words of Muhammad's favorite wife, complaining of the role assigned to women under Islam.
A narration found in Musnad Ibn Hanbal, vol. 2, p. 2992 states that: "Women, dogs, and donkeys annul a man’s prayer"

In Abu Dawud (2155) - Women are compared to slaves and camels with regard to the "evil" in them.
Ibn Ishaq 693

"Then the apostle sent Sad b. Zayd al-Ansari, brother of Abdu'l-Ashal with some of the captive women of Banu Qurayza to Najd and he sold them for horses and weapons."

Muhammad traded captured women for horses and weapons
Al-Tirmidhi 3272

Muhammad was asked which woman was best, he replied, 'The one who pleases (her husband) when he looks at her, obeys him when he gives a command, and does not go against his wishes regarding her person or property by doing anything of which he disapproves'."
In Muhammad's 'Farewell Sermon', he said:

"Treat women well, for they are [like] domestic animals with you and do not possess anything for themselves."

Israelites writing the OT books and altering old stories during their captivity in Babylon:

"Our god is better than other gods. Let's write a creation story that says he just woke everything into existence. The Enuma Elish is nice. Let's make use of its language."

"The story of the flood in the Epic of Gilgamesh is quite interesting. Let's make our own version of it but we'll change a couple of things. For instance, in place of Gilgamesh, we'll use Noah."

"Hey that Egyptian story "Admonitions of an Egyptian Sage" is really cool. You know what? Let's rewrite it and make it a story about how our god sent plagues to Egypt and conquered its Pharaoh. We'll just make sure we don't mention the name of any Pharaoh in particular"

Ibibio/Efik/Anaang mythology doesn't recognize the christian 'God' (yahweh/jehovah). It recognizes Abassi as the Chief Creator God (just like other cultures recognize their own Gods as Chief Creators in their local mythologies). Following the arrival of Christian missionaries... Nigeria, "Abassi" was syncretized with the Christian concept of God. Thus Christians began ascribing the name "Abassi" to the christian 'God' (Yahweh/Jehovah). The same nonsense was done to other cultures as christianity thrived.
Claiming that Abassi is the Christian God is an attempt at rubbishing Ibibio/Efik/Anaang mythology. They aren't the same. Abassi does not directly interact with humans but communicates through a pantheon of spirits called ndem or nnem.

The Bible refers to Jesus as the Lamb of God which was "...slain from the foundation of the world".

This means that before 'God' supposedly created Adam & Eve, he had already made provision for Jesus to die for their sin. This sounds exciting but if you really look at it, it...
...fucks up the idea of freewill & God's Omniscience. If 'God' (being Omniscient) had predestined jesus to die for Adam's sin before Adam even existed, then there's a huge problem. Adam & Eve didn't have freewill. As such, they couldn't have chosen not to eat that forbidden fruit
If they had turned down the temptation from the serpent, they would have messed up God's plan of predestination. In essence, for God's predestination of Jesus' sacrifice to happen as he planned, Adam & Eve HAD to sin. Sin became a necessity.

Basically, 'God' set Adam & Eve up.

I won't even address your gist about atheism being a religion. It's such a take that should be ignored. Here's a number of ways which the Bible oppresses women. The Bible repeatedly places women under subjection to men. In fact, within the legal literature of the Bible...
... women are not accorded the same status as men. In the 10 commandments, the wife is classified as her husband’s PROPERTY, and listed along with the husband's slaves & work animals.
1 Timothy 2 begins with the words “men should pray” (and the word used here for men is andras, a gendered word that refers only to males). It goes ahead to say that women should "...dress modestly"

Why is the instruction to dress modestly only given to women?

Morality does NOT come from religion.
Morality does NOT come from Yahweh, Jesus, Allah or any other god-figure.
Morality does NOT come from the Bible, Qur'an or any other religious text.

Morality is a philosophy that is refined over time. As humans, we have learnt overtime what works and what doesn’t - to give everyone a fair chance at living. That’s why morality needs room to change and evolve as humans grow and evolve.

Religion hijacked this philosophy, claiming that morality originally came from it. This is basically an attempt to lock humanity down to ancient, archaic understandings in order to remain relevant. Real morality is a reflection of human dignity. Religious morality is a fraud.

I have no doubts that Yahweh aka Jehovah - the local Hebrew deity whom Christians adopted & regard as a loving and merciful God - is the most wicked of all fictional characters of all time. One of his first acts of insanity is the supposed Flood of Noah

In that story, Yahweh decides that humans are innately evil and deserve to be killed. He seems to forget that he’s supposedly OMNISCIENT. That means he knew beforehand that humans were destined to become evil.He also knew beforehand that he would destroy his precious creation

Let's assume that the adults somehow deserved to die. What in the world did little kids do to be included in this killing spree? Why didn't God just keep the innocent little children aside for a while so that they wouldn’t be murdered along with their 'evil' parents?
