In an increasingly interconnected modern society religion is a relic of the past and does more harm then good. It causes divisions in the global community leading to war and suffering. It is one more obstacle standing in the way of all people coming together to work toward the advancement of the human race.

Religion does more harm than good in the modern world. Does this mean that religion shouldn't exist? Of course not! Religion is supposed to be a beautiful thing, but when two different ideas meet, arguments and violence might happen. Because there's no actual honest way to say which religion is the correct one, people are mainly left up to personal experiences and imagination to use as evidence. Because both sides have both of those, arguments are made. In the real world, this happens on a larger scale. Radical terrorism can be caused by religious beliefs, or ideals that you're supposed to kill people who do not have the same beliefs as yours, and that is why a lot of mass shootings and tragic events occur. In society, religion doesn't actually have the biggest effect. In most situations you don't even need to tell others your religion, because most people don't care. The modern world isn't affected by your beliefs unless you actually make a big deal out of it by trying to force your belief on others and using violence. It does more harm then good. It doesn't matter till the violence kicks in, then people will start turning heads.

If religion does more harm then good then we as a society should do everything we can to discredit and discourage the practice of religion. Society should do everything possible to prevent all kinds of arguments and violence that can lead to war and the destruction of the human race. We have a situation where there is such a powerful belief in something that can be interpreted in so many different ways and too many of those interpretations are dangerous to mankind. When something does more harm then good the logical thing to do is stop doing it.
