It wouldn't be the utopia people often think it would be, but there would be one fewer stumbling block in our way.
Listen to "Imagine" by John Lennon, and you'll understand why.
Though I love religon we would be more advanced due to the fact that the church wouldn't have destroyed all of technological advances in the Mid Evil Times.
A world full of atheists. No arguments or conflicts that have been numerous in history with religion.
Most divisive issue in human history.
A long, long time ago, we would have already been in a galaxy far, far away.
A bloody paradise, that's what. Think "multiverse" episode of Family Guy. Something close to that.
Religion has set us back.
In a world without religion, society would focus upon more worldly things, such as science and reason! In no way am I bashing or saying that all religion is bad, I'm just answering the complete question without bias!
If morality replaced religion then we would be so much better off.
Ah, we just love to believe that religious people cause all the crap, don't we? Let's not forget that just as many scientific and artistic advances during the Renaissance were inspired by Christianity. Religion isn't stopping science in the slightest, it's just convenient to believe so.
The only reason religion would be gone is if by force, and I don't like that idea whatsoever. Otherwise, the superstitious will always be with us. So be it. For the most part, they are benign. Moreover, removing religion does not remove greed, selfishness, cruelty, etc... If anything, it removes one of the (admittedly often ineffectual) safeguards against those human traits which damage our collective safety and prosperity.
First to point it out I am not religious. Second a wise man once said " the only thing we can be truly sure of is that we exist" and going by that statement, pretty much everything around us could not really exist. therefor it would be really hard to get anything done if we didn't believe that we are actually on earth. Since we have no 100% proof that the world exists it can be considered a religious belief. so in other words we need religion.
Religion is the only source for a moral standard.
I believe religion is like a sticky substance think of the worlds progress as a ball the sticky substance slows the ball but doesn't stop it completely. Religion slows progression but doesn't completely stop it. Before anymore major progression is made our world needs to find more peace plus if people are stressed now what would we be like in a more advanced world
well yes religions suck...there is only one GOD but man and fallen angels have devised over 20000 world religions ...GOD gives us FAITH,whereas man teaches religion
Religion is something that gives conscience to people .People who don't have hearts would do anything that they want like harming or killing or stealing however religious shows that there is life after death and there you will suffer in the hell because of your sins. This will encourage people to not do bad things cause they will afraid of the hell.But unfortunately nowadays there are a lot of people who don't believe in God so they think they can kill someone if they want and nobody will see them however they do not know that God sees everything... But i dont say that everyone who dont believe are bad ,it also depends on their decency.
