  • That religion has shaped us to be who we are now

    There is no technology, no time-saving device that can alter the rhythms of religion and the good hearted feeling of faith and the feeling of belonging that comes with it. Unlike with our morals where we are alone, religion can make people feel united and not alone. People can say that religion ties us down and morals have no boundaries and limits. But sometimes we need rules. Sometimes we need a place or something to turn to when we are in doubt of whom we are or who we should be. Religion will never abandon us while morals can. They are forever changing and not something that we can rely on due to it being ephemeral. For Example: One century abortion is right and the next its wrong. That lack of boundaries that people consider so great and empowering can also be our biggest downfall. These morals without religion are nothing more than an opinion. The reason for this is that people with no religion find their morals from the people they communicate with or from the law or maybe even somewhere else. But the point is, almost no modern cultures or societies have come to be who they are now without some sort of belief or faith or doubt of who we are or where we came from. There has always been someone and will always be someone who wonders “Why me? What is the point of this? How has this life come to be?”. And as I mentioned earlier that the basic morals are not reliable, one of the wisest options would be to turn to religion because it is one of the few unchanging things in the world you may find. Religion has shaped us into the people we are and to say that morals affects more than religion is completely and utterly false.

  • No, one does not necessarily involve action.

    If you're considering this question in the view of society, then belief is not more important than morality because a person can believe anything at all, but still make immoral decisions to the detriment of others. However, if a person is moral, the society is better off. On an individual basis, however, believe is very important to the individual.

  • No, Morality is a more justified approach

    No, belief is not more important than morality. If a person disregards belief for morality then you justify murder simply because one believes it to be necessary. Morality is a more universal system. There is no situation in which morality does not help level the playing field. A moral society is a better society for everyone.

  • No, belief is not more important than morality.

    Belief is not more important than morality because belief can and almost always conflicts with morality. For instance, one culture's morality may abhor another culture's practices of beliefs. Be that sacrificing to superstitions or the idea that life is at conception rather that at individual cells. One can easily obtain a morality without a superstitious belief to give it legitimacy.

  • Belief is not more important than morality.

    Belief is far less important than morality, if someone believes that raping children is the right thing to do, and they do it, people get hurt because of this person putting their beliefs first. It is common sense to put morality in front of beliefs, unless you are scared of what will happen to you. (which, by the way, is a belief.)
