My first point will be that all through history there has been religion and one thing nearly all these regions have in common is the idea of 'a life after death' my personal belif was that it was a way too get young men to join armys too fight it is easier to risk ones life if you belivies is not you ronly one. Secondly the human race has survived by invetion we hav einveted thing to help us overcome thoose enemines we could not handle yet one enemy remains though death and i fell that the best the early humans could do was sothen the pain by creating a false hope in the style of reglion and heavens

1) You have said that it gets young men to join army's when I doubt that that would be the only reason.
2) Saying it is a false hope is not right as people have different beliefs and if that gives them peace then let them believe in it.
My first point is that it gives people peace of mind and everyone thinks different things. Also no one knows if there is or if there isn't and so to say it isn't when you don't know isn't a fact but an opinion.

you make a fair point and I'm not saying not to believe what they want I like how it hives people hope but is it truly okay to go through life worshiping these gods and sacrificing so much for them. plus there are hundreds of religion in the world how could someone e so nieve as to believe that they are right and all the others are wrong isn't it better to have them go through life knowing that the sis there only one and there no afterlife plus don't people know that christian was voted into exeistance by the roman church and also jesus was devoted a divine begin and all manuscrips documenting his human behaviours were detroyed they fused chrstianity and pagnisim

It is okay for them to go through life believing as it is what they believe and so they are not na"ve as to them they are right and so that's all that matters to them.

Overall I believe it is perfectly fine for the bible and other forms of religion to help people believe in life after feath as it gives them peace of mind and helps them grieve.
