depends.... on one hand without any religious deity we would have had nothing to start us on the road to being a society nothing to bind people under a common banner at the start of it all

on the other hand with religion came suffering from the abuse of power that the society entrusted into those that were said to convey the will of their deity

No, I don't believe that for various reasons. I am for example a God, so no fucking way : <

This is a what if question wherein there is not enough evidence on both sides to make one more correct than the other. In other words, while millions have died/die for religion, it can't be proven that millions have not been saved due to religion.

Eh, the concept of God isn't necessarily a religious thing. Often I observe that people view the position of God as that of absolute power and leadership. Religion aside, people in general are violent and stupid, and with the right (and often very little) persuasion, they'd be willing to kill for just about anything.

Well, since i'm agnostic, I find this hard to answer. Honestly, I believe that people believe in god to have a peace in their heart and to not think that hmmm maybe there is another reason this world exists. So I think that people came up with a god for the sake or peace. Although, I think without god, we would all live our way and we would live without thinking about heaven or hell or the fact that god will punish you for your sins. So its what someone would call, a double-edged sword.
This is completely based on my opinions and I don't mean to offend anyone. (I must do this since I have offended many people due to my beliefs in the concept we call god)

Even though I'm not a religious person, I would have to say no because human beings are animals that need to be tamed.

Wouldn't laws do that quite well? So why would you need religion to achieve that, when there is so much violence in the world already with religion around?

I think it is finland has upto about 72% of it population are either athiest or agnostic and it is by far one of the best countries to live in the world.

So yeah, if you ask me, the world can certainly do without religion.


NO DOUBLE POSTING! >:O

this makes no sense :P

just cause someone is religious doesnt mean they cant be 'jerks' sometimes and vice versa.

Religious people are still people and a lot of the times they can be oppressive 'jerks' ........remember the crusades? :P



I never said that they arnt jerks, I was just saying that not all of them are, a lot of people think if someone is religious then they are like completely against most things.

The way I see it, believing too much in a god can mess up people's thoughts .
