Today we have a big war in Middle East which undoubtedly religion plays a great role, also in North and Central Africa, in south-east Asia where rebels claiming obedience to ISIS kill and torture without hesitation and against all possible human morals. I can argue that same was the case when Islam started in 5th century. Same kind of atrocities was witnessed. Same is true for all other religious crimes that have been committed in the name of God. Interesting is that during all the time that humanity was existing, there was someone who claimed that can talk with the God. There was a story of someone who was born in December from a virgin woman way before Jesus Christ. When humanity did not know what is behind that mountain or what is making lightning, they all thought it is the God who created and it dependent on our actions. Then we learned that no, it is not the case. The more we learn about the nature the more God seems no where to find, more like a myth. It is actually a myth. Bible said the earth is 5000 years old, and we know it is 3.5 billion years old. Bible knows nothing about nature and how it works, how our body functions, how stars evolve and etc. Every human being should understand that they are not important in this universe, and there is no one judging or watching them. They should step from egocentric view, which religions of Abraham presents. We are lucky to be in this beautiful planet, and no one have created us, we have evolved over billions over years, and even before life started evolving on earth, the planet, star, galaxy have been formed. Universe is totally indifferent to us. The question of God is irrelevant. What relevant is, how can we give meaning to our lives? Seemingly, we have no purpose on this universe. But, we as a conscious beings, who naturally enjoys sharing, joy, communication, hard work, we can use the tools and resources we have to give better living conditions to every human and living being on earth. All the nations should unite to do this. No human should think what am a going to eat after 3 hours and how am I going to get it? It should be provided because it can be done with the technology we have. We should get read of the myths and look at the world with the tools of science. It is very clear that there is no God, and even talking about it is on the same level as talking about Greek God Zeus.
