We see Muslims killing jews and stuff, but do you really think if we abolish religion it would make everything more peaceful?

btw, all the christian fascists, the ones "Christianity is the real religion. We all need to convert to that to achieve world peace" gtfo. some people are smarter than you and realize that there is no god.

I'm agnostic but i dont support abolishing religion. I support abolishing religious fascists though, such as the GOP. STFU.

No, people would just find another excuse to be jerks.

no, it wouldn't, it would be like on south park with the atheists, they would just fight over which non religion was right.

so pretty much the same thing just named different. I think it would be more peaceful because there would be no shi'ite sunni conflict and no struggle in israel etc.

not at all. no moral standards mean complete and utter moral relativism for everyone.

simple meaning: do whatever the fvck you feel like whenever you feel like because you think it's "right" and "moral" according to your own ideals.

this means no laws, no order, no anything.

no religion would be a BAD thing.

No. Instead of religion, people would just fight over which country/race was better. Sadly, it's in humans' nature to fights with each other

no not really, because do you really think there fighting over religion? because they arent, its more fighting over land, they just want to feel better than one another. if anything religion is holding them back.

Religion, race, nationality etc are all just excuses for people to follow a natural instinct of being afraid of or hostile to the unknown or unfamiliar.

religion is really never a reason for war, its often a way of justifying it though. (not saying it should be, just saying it is.) Xenophobia and greed are the real reasons for war. elimiate them, and maybe the world would be more peaceful.

On a certain level things would be better if everyone were AGNOSTIC. WOW, A WORD PEOPLE ARE TOO IGNORANT TO THINK ABOUT. INSTEAD, LETS CALL EVERYBODY STUPID ATHEISTS JUST FOR NOT BELIEVING IN GOD!!!
#15
I think we've come to a point where we can move on without needing a certain religion to guide us but I think religion was very important to get us this far and that if it never existed, the world would be a much worse place.
#16
It wouldn't make it completely peaceful, but it would be a step in the right direction.

Edit: The first post makes no sense.. Some people are smarter because they believe there is no god, while you say you're agnostic? That's..pretty interesting..

Also, you're apart of the problem. Just because you are not Christian, it doesn't give you the right to criticize people for what they believe in. You just did the same thing you don't like them for doing.
It's people like you who take away the respect of agnosticism and atheism. What you said was just as, if not worse than when someone says Christianity is "the real religion". If everyone would just learn to respect one another, then it would be more peaceful.

I don't think so, no. Religion establishes some good life guidelines for people to live by.

I don't think it would change anything because in the end all the religion issues are more like the inability to tolerate ohter peoples beliefs, ideals, etc

just because there would be no religion doesnt mean there wouldnt be any laws. thats exactly what's wrong with society people blow religion way out of proportion and end up living there lives by stuff that for all we know is a bunch of bull****. i believe religion is a hypocritical waste of time, but if thats whatever floats your boat i guess.

dont call the GOP religious facists. dumbass, just call certain people that if you must. your essentially stereotyping ALL republicans, how is that different than what you say ALL christians and ALL republicans do.
BTW, Abe Lincoln was a member of the GOP, and guess who was a democratic supporter and southern sympathizer......... John Wylkes Booth. so dont generalize.

Wow TS, you are the reason that I hate many atheists. That whole "I'm better than you, and I have it all figured out attitude" really makes me want to bash some faces. I'm agnostic myself, but I think that theists are generally lucky to have faith and a reason to live.

As to the question, no religion may create many differences, and unites large regions. And if there were no religion, there would be many more assholes around and we would figure out something else to bicker about.

No we would find the differences within every Christian/muslim individual and start more sh*t.

You're a total idiot.

Conflict naturally arises from peoples differences, the more different people are the greater teandancy towards hatred so if no one believed in God you would have more people agreeing and therefore more peace, if everyone believed in the same religion there would also be more peace.
#32
the world would be more peacful without religion but not entirely peaceful as things like money and power also motivate war not just religion

They're fighting over that land because it has a religious meaning to them. Basically they're fighting over land that both sides believe belongs to them, because of their religion.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think religion played a part. I think some 'christians' used the Bible to defend their actions. They stated that black people couldn't be descendents of Adam and Eve and therefore weren't human. There's more to it than that though.
