"Creationism is almost certainly wrong because observations have refuted it, but most other religious concepts are beyond our reach"

Most dogmatic religions make concrete statements about the univese, and hence can be refuted. Only smaller, personal philosophies don't make any statements about reality, and in my opinion a philosophy that makes totally unfalsifiable statements on a regular basis is one not worth having.

"All I said is that religion has been the direct and/or indirect cause of SOME suffering. I don't see how one could refute this statement."

Okay, I'm just pointing out that this suffering would have taken place with or without religion (religion is not really the cause, so much as the method used by people.)
