  • Religion is the root cause of war

    Throughout history, the root cause of many wars has been disagreement over religion. Whole nations throughout the centuries have been torn apart by religious debate and it is still happening now. Without religion, there would have been no 9/11 and no holocaust during the second world war. Millions of deaths could have been prevented in a religion free society.

  • A refutation of the "No's".

    The running theme of the opposing parties seems to be that, without religion, and by proxy God, there would be no morals. This is indicative of the belief of moral absolutism, more popularly known as objective morality.

    I don't believe that I have to explain how inherently flawed this stance is, but, oh well.

    Objective morality is false, because not everyone has the same morals. If there was a moral absolute, why are those supposed absolutes constantly violated? It makes very little sense. The morals of a deranged, psychopathic murderer differ greatly from the altruistic, vegan, Greenpeace pacifist. Morality is all a matter of opinion; hardly anyone follows a strictly similar moral code.

    With this in mind, the morality argument for religion is rendered void. Religion is a detriment to a progressive society and scientific inquiry, and has done little to provide any progress in the realm of morality, subjective or otherwise.

  • Religion is the cause of many deaths.

    Many wars were conducted in the name of Religion. Religion is actually telling many lies about questions that aren't completely answered by science. The most stupid thing about this is that the Religions are fighting mutual. But the biggest problem are the lies. Lying creates a lot of problems. Religious Lies cause discrimination against... Almost everybody for example homosexual persons. Religion is a very BAD thing because it lies very often.

  • Yes - without religion, so many fights would stop

    I am not, and have never been a religious person, and I personally think that religion causes more problems than not. Think back to how many types of people are hated, because God supposedly said that they should be, how many people have lost their lives because of people killing in the name of Allah. People should have faith if they choose to, yes, but in practical things, or themselves, rather than imaginary deities that have never told them anything first hand.

  • Absolutely as we are smart enough to build our own moralities and without religion our moralities wouldnt be so different and opposing.

    Do you think religion gives people answers that science cant answer like the person to my right who said no? Lmao every religion has different opposing answers to important questions like what are we? Free will or no free will. What are we in relation to each other? Equal or not not to mention on the clock what are we in relation to each other which will determine what we can do and say to each other. Why are we here? Which will determine what you should be doing with your life. And what should the top priorities of a morality be? Like preventing pain suffering and misery or promoting human happiness. These questions determine our morality and everyone has different answers thx to these questions causing most of the conflict in the world not to mention it causes immorality because the good parts of conventional morality are discredited with the bad parts leaving some completely immoral. Not to mention the churches of the world have opposed almost every moral progress in the world like every improvement in humane feeling, every improvement in criminal law, every mitigation of slavery or step towards the better treatment of colored races, the diminution of war, and need i continue? Religion doesnt give you the answers to my questions it just keeps you from asking these questions smart one. Lol i wish i had your intelligence level. Life would be simpler.

  • Yes because it has taken a position opposite science

    As a word, religion is the assembled folklore, mysticism, medicine, pyschology and mores of A given culture. The great hall of the wisest of the wise. But a wise person looks directly, with clear eyes, at what is true. When religion became something where the words and deeds of people long dead became more truth than the evidence before us, religion became the enemy of peace, life, and truth. But only a fool woulf discount all the knowledge of his ancestors. Many truths yet remain nestled in the worlds religions, waiting for us to calm down and observe better.

  • Religion is part of Culture

    Religion is part of culture, and if you take it out, how would people preform their cultural ceremonies that are part of the religion, or would those ceremonies and rituals just go away too? And then culture would eventually be gone because it would fall apart if even one piece was taken from it.

  • Religon Creates Barriers

    Religon creates more bad than good for the simple reason of creating barriers between us. Instead of seeing humanity as one, religion significantly supports the claim that this is not true. Even though most religions preach peace, and may have good intentions, the bottom line is that it stimulates fear and hatred for ones who are not apart of their own ideas and values. You can see this in American society today. Conservative social values are based on religon, and we see today that conservatives are generally not as accepting of other cultures. Think about it, if you believe in say christianity for example, over all other religon, you must genuinely belief that all those who are not christian are not on the side of God, therefore it is very easy to demean them and to hate them.

  • There has been such death and atrocities, due to one's beliefs...

    You CAN NOT say the Earth is NOT better off without religion, that is just totally ludicrous. Religion has caused much death across the lands, and has brought selfish and careless wars to man-kind. If one man was to think of all this religion in his head, he'd be put in an insane facility, but because many think so it is accepted by countries and even continents.

  • Yeah, and science is better anyway

    Personally, I do think it would be fine if religion was no longer a thing. Lots of religions contradict others, and in some cases, their books contradict themselves. There even are insane rules in say, the bible that would be illegal today. For example, there is a part where a child was actually boiled to death. You really think we want that today? Besides, isn't it tiring for religion to be forced on people? I'm not atheist, I'm agnostic. Some also think that god knows everything. Well, we sure know a lot more now than we used to. Humanity has evolved to the point where we don't need a figure to say everything. Steffon66 explains this better than I ever could, lol

  • Atheists wouldn't understand.

    In response to war arguments: war is not inherently bad; if we did all we could to avoid war, we'd end up with a tyrant. In response to all arguments stating anything relating to the fact that humanity is creating its own morals, laws, etc.: that simply isn't true; god created those morals.

  • we need it

    Religion is good for giving people answers to things that science can't answer. Religion calms people down & gives people hope. For some it gives them purpose, for others it brings them company.
    For many people religion brings structure, order & control. But sometimes this gets out of hand & leads to the problems you describe.

  • No, the world would not be better off without religion.

    No, the world would not be better off without religion. Religion helps to keep the people of the world moral and honest. Without religion society would deteriorate and good, appropriate behavior would be eroded. Many great nations have religious foundations that help to keep their citizens doing the right thing.

  • The beauty of variety's

    I find it amazing to see all these different types of beliefs and the different places they are located in and the different way the go through with it. It is human nature to start wars, but religious nature to love each other and be in peace. Yes it is a reason there are wars but it is the people that started it, not the religion. Take the religion out of the world and you take out the beauty of variety.

  • You want a world without religion, you'll get one

    Ever since the beginning of time, we humans have tried to either discard or match God. The real reason why none of you want religion is because you don't want to have anything to fear, to respect. During the period between 3BC and now, there have been 1,793 wars. 123 of these however have been religion based. So what does that tells us. We are selfish and our human evil ways have lead us to conflict each other. Another reason why people don't want there to be religion is because they are afraid of heaven and hell. They don't want to be punished for all the sins they've committed. However, for Christians repentance gives you a clean slate before God, which was only made possible by our Lord Jesus Christ. Many say that religion causes more trouble than help. However, Christians have contributed many gains for humanity. (Beginning of hospitals, racial freedom, helping refugees during the holocaust). In conclusion, the world is not better of without religion and when the end times come at which many will be taken to heaven, you will get your world without heaven and I promise you, you will not like it.

  • The World Would Soon Create Religion

    No, the world would not be better off without religion. Even if we didn’t have religion, the world would soon create a religion, as to explain the things science can’t. As said above, religion brings structure, and comfort to people’s lives. Without this structure, the world would be a mess, and no one would know where to start to create this structure.

  • Its a part of our own lives

    Religion is a huge part of culture and family and who we are as people. It is apart of our families, our history, our everyday lives and it’s something that many people hold on to and it means a great deal to many, it gives us something to believe in and someone to look to in times of trouble. Without it, lives would change and almost fall apart which is why we need it.
