it's a mute question....ever since man looked to the sun and heavens and wondered about his plave here, the idea of god came into existance. so even if i play aloong with the "what if".....mankind would be no more malicious to one another than with religion, and dare i say: probably less, because unfortunately, more people have died in the name of God than any other killer...be it cigarettes or whatever......that being said...i AM spiritual, and we must realize that there as as many radical killing christians as there are muslums..............From the very beginning man has had this yearning that he was connected to something greater then himself. It is in this need to find our "reason of existance " that we have found God and He has found us. There is too much history to suggest that God exists and we much remember man created "relegion" to fit into their concept and to give them the RIGHT to do their deeds "In The Name Of God" .

I think the World would be a lot safer for little boys


I think there would be less hate crimes.

I think there would be a stronger belief in God.

"Religion has caused many otherwise-sensible men to become atheists."

I regrettably cannot find the source for this [para?]phrase, but you guys get the point.

Without religion there would be no civilization... You see without believing in something greater than ones self, it doesn't work and it fails... That's what is going on today in the United States. It's all about themselves and greed and no fear of a God or higher power... If they feared a higher power they would be honest as they wouldn't want to have eternity in hell, which is where they are going but are too dumb to realize it.

You can believe in God and not believe in these mainstream religions. They are not mutually exclusive. It only appears that way to the devout religious person because they think they are divinely correct with reading their divinely inspired doctrine.

So in your opinion, would Islam uphold the entire Worlds civilization? It qualifies for the 'belief in something greater'.

What? Religion does not prevent rape, murder or crime at all

Remember that a number of priests have been convicted of pedophilia over the years. Obviously religion didnt scare them to much

In my opinion, if there was no religion, there:

1. Would be a lot less arguing over whos god is the right god

2. There would be no religious wars/ jihads

3. Some people wouldnt be scaremongered (not that everyone is, just a few people are) into following a religious path

4. Cults would not tear families apart, ruin lifes financially etc, and in certain cases, lives may have not been lost

Thats just my opinion

Thanks
I love beer
It's not as good as the Blood of Christ, but it's still delicious.
