Religion is nothing more than a belief system that many people believe in. People naturally try to convince others of there beliefs, whether it be
UFOs, Atheism, 9/11; people still try and convince others and it is entirely human.
Now religion has been integrated into our culture and unfortunately once that happens you get power struggles, war, the usual politics. Religion also
is a great way to gather followers, then brainwash them in something that was not even taught in the first place.
Religion is not the problem, people who use religion for political reasons are.
