Do you think for as long as religious followers exist, religious extremists (defined in this context as those who are willing to harm others for the sake of their own religion or deity/deities) will also exist?

Do you think it is possible for multiple religions, and atheism, to exist demographically in the world without religiously motivated conflict arising?

I think they have always existed and will always exist.

It should but probably will never exist without conflict.

Sure. there are lots of examples. Buddhism coexists peacefully with most other religions. Over 90% of Japanese are Buddhists or Shinto or both, yet polls show about 70% to be atheists. Go figure. Multicultural societies like Hawaii have many religions coexisting without strife.

Jihadists are never going to mix, but the modern world will gradually get beyond such extremism. It depends upon cultural isolation to survive.

Nope. Religion is so personal that when people don't agree, it is inevitable that there will be conflict.

I think there will always be head-butting on political issues but if not for Islamic extremists, who don't represent their entire faith, there wouldn't be a lot of true "conflict", of a religious nature today. It's also noteworthy that alot of today's problems, it could be argued, are caused by a lack of religion.

Oh yeah, I guess the conflict between Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland doesn't exist

Oh wait.......

A young man was walking through Belfast late one night, when someone grabbed him from behind, put a knife to his throat, and said "Are ye Protestant or catholic?". The young man, figuring it would give him the best odds, said "I'm Jewish". The man behind him replied "well ain't I just the luckiest Muslim in all of Ireland!".

I think that any sort of demographic will be exploited by political entities in order to advance their agenda. Just look at Byzantium and Sassanid Persia after the First Council of Ephesus. So even if the religious groups have no doctrinal qualms with one another, somebody will invent one.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

Isn't that conflict about which flag is being flown??

World-wide, there were over 125,000 babies killed intentionally yesterday, because of an atheistic belief. That happens every single day of the year. Any statistic you have about religious conflict pales in comparison.

I'm not even going to get into your completely idiotic belief that abortion is a tenent of atheism. But, no, it has nothing to do with a flag. It was about whether control of the country is in the hands of Britain or Ireland.

That makes it a religious conflict?? So I guess our Revolutionary War was also a religious conflict??

If you read it properly, you would see that i used the past tense was. At this point it's simply proties against Cathos. Even if it were still about the English vs Irish, the fact of the matter is that the sides don't care whether you are British or Irish, they care whether you are Protestant or catholic.

Do you think it is possible for multiple religions, and atheism, to exist demographically in the world without religiously motivated conflict arising?

I think there will always be head-butting on political issues but if not for Islamic extremists, who don't represent their entire faith, there wouldn't be a lot of true "conflict", of a religious nature today. It's also noteworthy that alot of today's problems, it could be argued, are caused by a lack of religion.


Oh yeah, I guess the conflict between Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland doesn't exist

Oh wait.......

Isn't that conflict about which flag is being flown??

World-wide, there were over 125,000 babies killed intentionally yesterday, because of an atheistic belief. That happens every single day of the year. Any statistic you have about religious conflict pales in comparison.

What in the hell?

Exactly.

I'm not even going to get into your completely idiotic belief that abortion is a tenent of atheism.

Good

But, no, it has nothing to do with a flag. It was about whether control of the country is in the hands of Britain or Ireland.

That makes it a religious conflict?? So I guess our Revolutionary War was also a religious conflict??

If you read it properly, you would see that i used the past tense was. At this point it's simply proties against Cathos. Even if it were still about the English vs Irish, the fact of the matter is that the sides don't care whether you are British or Irish, they care whether you are Protestant or catholic.

The point is that it's about political issues. Christians fought in Vietnam, but that doesn't make it a religious war.


You didn't read what i said, did you?

Yes, I did. The Protestants are on one side of the issue, the Catholics on the other. That's how they identify who's who, I guess. That doesn't make it a religious war.

And this is why I try to avoid talking to you.

Then take my name off your sig and stop responding to anything I post. It's a really easy fix if you try.

Yeah leave it there because it's real mature to hold a grudge against someone who voices a different opinion than your own, on a debate site.

You're not trying very hard. I can barely post anything on this site without you attacking it.

" I swear by the name of the glory of Ohrmazd, the Mazdayasnian religion, and the life of my brother Zarir, that I will not strike you, I will not kill you, and also I will not place you in the position of defending yourself with a shield. "
-- Yatkar-i-Zariran

Zoroastrians have killed in the past in the name of the religion of Ohrmazd. However, one of the great Zoroastrian warrior, Zarir, says that it is better not to kill in the name of Ohrmazd. So Zoroastrians can live peacefully with other religions such as the Abrahamic religions such as Christians, Jews, and Muslims in the East.
