  • Religion is what people make of it.

    Most religions use guilt shame fear and hatred to teach good people to do immoral act. It’s immoral to sacrifice the needs of yourself and others in hopes of making things better for yourself in an afterlife which may not even exist anyway. Often this involves clever, ad hoc interpretations which wouldn’t be needed if people were willing to make and take responsibility for their own choices. Of course everyone prefers their own religious morality and the commands of their own god. This is where superstitious beliefs come in to command a person what is right or wrong. An elementary school child of today knows more of the natural world then the superstitious men who invented religion. I know of no society in recorded history that ever suffered because its people became too reasonable. Reason will always have more positive insight then any religion. People can't even agree on one religion, but they all agree that the others are wrong. Some religious people are willing to kill or die to make the point that there religion is the right one. People can be good without religion, it does more harm then good. Question everything and thank you for the question. Have a nice day.

  • Religion causes more harm.

    Religion caused more harm than good like example, Lets go back in time and see how many murders and war has happened throughout history like the crusades. Many people were killed because of religion like example Europe, Many people were killed because if Christianity. At least today the harm that was caused is probably low.

  • Historically, Religion through fear has been geared to control people.

    There are volumes of historical material attesting to the church's (especially catholic) attempts to control how people live and even how they should think. For many who blindly follow the dogma of their chosen religion, This is true even today. For centuries, Religion has slowed the progress of science by making it not only a sin, But a crime punishable by death, To question the so-called divine word of god.

  • I totally support the claim!

    I’ll just quote the American physicist Steven Weinberg who wisely and accurately pointed out the most problematic and destructive aspect of religion:
    “With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.”
    So true.

  • Religion creates a society/community and friendships.

    Religion builds a city,town or country. The country of Ireland is wildly religious and their cities, towns and villages are full of life and friendliness. You can build a friendship based on what you believe in and your interests, if your interest is religion you can find a friend with the same interest.

  • It's not religion that causes wars- it's the people

    Religions do not support the use of violene- the bible opposes it- one of the Ten Commandments is that you shall not murder, it is the people that do this- as they feel that it is what their God wants them to do, yet there is no biblical evidence that it is what they want- so extremists may be disallusioned, or perhaps there god has told them to do what they do.

  • People Do Not Understand

    The major problem with religion is not the religion itself, it is the people who follow the religion and misinterpret it. Religion becomes dangerous when people politicize it or try to use it to push their agenda or what they believe is right. Religion and the facets of religion do not hurt anyone, it's people who do not follow their religions guidelines, that hurts. Prime example, the golden rule.

  • God can provide mankind with meaning and purpose through eternal life and infinite goodness.

    There are many harmful religions which bring strife and violence. But without Christianity, the fate of mankind would be utterly hopeless. Despite the noble efforts of good humanitarians everywhere, death is the only reality for every person. Eventually, humanity itself will go extinct, and all life will soon follow. Life is truly meaningless and absurd without God and eternal life.

  • Religion does not do more harm than good.

    Religion does not do more harm than good. Depending on your religion and what you believe in can have a positive effect on the way that you live your life. Most people put their faith into their religion and use it to remain positive about life. Religion is good for everyone.

  • Religion: Doesn't Harm

    People need something to believe in when all hope seems to be lost. Religion helps shape people to be a better person to learn what is right from wrong. We shouldn't tell others what they can and can't believe just because you don't think it does any good. It is not your job to tell others how to live because it is not your life. Just take care of your self and mind your own bee's wax.

  • Religions are vital to humankind

    First all religions teach peace, humans are the one changing it for politic use and adapting it to their desires.
    Second religions bring a form of stability to people, it often changes peoples life in a positive way.
    Third it gives us a purpose in life.
    Forth Religions give you a feeling of belonging to a group which is crucial for humans. Who is alone in his heart has more chance of being depressed.
    Fifth all great religious men always preached speech before the sword.
    To conclude before judging a religion go directly to the source itself instead of listening to people who might be uneducated about it.

  • Religion is a choice

    Religion is what people believe and what some people stand for and even what they use to motivate themselves everyday. If religion is a help to millions and millions of people everyday and if it helps them get over situations if something is as good as to let someone want to leave how does it harm anyone.

  • Religion is not harmful

    Religion does not cause harm because religions like Sikhism are showing equality and people are getting to use to the world. Like wars, arguments and personal life. More communities are showing peace and being helpful , even politics are getting into the religion issues which are solving it fast and quickly. Religion is like a family.

  • Religion is good, as long as it's kept in its place.

    Religion has the power to uplift, to inspire, and to bring joy to many people. Here in the United States, however, our Founding Fathers were well aware that religion can also be used as a blunt instrument of hate and justification for vile acts, which is why our First Amendment establishes a clear separation between the two institutions.

  • Religion is What People Make of It

    Religion provides a spiritual insight to a lot of people. As an institution, it helps people find meaning in a complex world. However, there is a line. Spiritual enlightenment is one thing; trying to impose your sense of spiritual enlightenment onto unwilling people is a form of fascism. That's the part that does harm.
