i don't think it would be good simply because it would impede free will.

free will is our greatest asset after #1 love and #2 truth.

There is another reason for this because I read there is an organisation that wants to ban all religions, I was seeing how some ATS members think about such a scheme and it seems some are for it as evidence shows on here and other forums.

Religion gives people false hope, which is despicable.

We'd be better off not if we didn't have religion, but if we didn't think we need it. It's more than possible to get all the hope you need from mankind's potential, and not from mystic sky faeries or some such nonsense.

We'll get there one day. Rational thought will prevail, and human development will advance at a fantastic pace.

the romans tried and they lost.


I thought the Romans were actually extremely tolerant of the various religions from the lands they conquered. It was the Christians' refusal to embrace diversity that led to their persecution. All the other religions were cool with the fact that others might believe what they might believe, but not the Christians.

I think that the comfort some find in religion is quite cool. However, the influence of the establishments behind the religions and the various interpretations of any given religious work has completely skewed the original meanings behind any given faith. I'd be all for religion being completely separated from law/politics, and all tax exemptions to be removed. Faith based initiatives are simply the influence of belief over the law. This is wrong.
I'm so tired of religious zealots insisting that morals, manners, and standards are the sole territory of the churches. As if only the religious can have morals. Such stupidity aggravates me.

True separation of Church (by which I mean all religions) and State is the only real way forward. A ban on faith based initiatives, political contributions from religious organizations, and any religious influence on the law would go a long way toward real progress.

Again, I have no problem with people being religious. That's just fine. Good for them. When their beliefs infringe on mine (whatever they may be) I can only find it offensive.
