Living without belief in a God is like crossing the M1 without using the Green Cross Code. Your choice. Enjoy your life. SkipRat, having a large percentage of people being atheistic or agnostic is no guide to the standard of life. Ask anyone living in the Vatican City. Or Utah.

I believe the world would be better if peoples beliefs were taboo in conversation life a woman's age you just don't talk about it around company and you didn't worry about other people's religion just yours. The problems with the world isn't that we believe in something the problems are that we worry ourselves about what other people believe in and that some religion is believed in too strongly or misconstrued to the point of extremism

A better world for everyone? Or a better world for you.

I think it would make me happier without it because I really don't like religion, but I'm just one person.

I don't believe it makes a lot of difference, as long as there are people to improve it.

I am not sure, it's a trick question you are asking me. I have to think about it, it's gonna take a long time.

Yes, it makes more sense to know that we aren't that important in this huge universe we don't even know much about.

Let's say I believe in a supernatural deity... it doesn't have to be male or female, perfect, benevolent, all-knowing, or all powerful, because the gods and spirits of different religions past and present are not all the same.

If I could get rid of either gods or organized religion, I would get rid of organized religion.

If we could get rid of a god to believe in, meaning that regardless of whether deities exist - people would all be atheist... well, sounds nice to me.

I'm half-asleep so I apologize in advance if this doesn't make sense.

Without a god? Well, I don't believe in one. But I think enough people use a god as a moral compass that keeps some people happy. Thus, the absolute abolition of a god could cause some chaos. And the biggest source of the chaos...?

...yep. Organized religion. As other posters have mentioned, I do think that the world would be better without this. What is it that saves some people is their belief in their god(s), not the religion itself. Yet, it is that same religion that has caused countless deaths and stymed scientific advances. Remember, when religion ruled the world, they called it the dark ages. It has nothing to do with a god. It has everything to do with those claiming to be able to speak for one.

I don't believe religion brings morals, if that were the case why are there so many Catholic priests molesting children?
Has anyone forgotten the many wars and atrocities brought about by religion?
Hitler was Catholic and look how well that turned out.

Either way, I believe the world would be a better place without organized religion.

God served a purpose in the past. For ancient humans, mythmaking expanded culture and explained phenomena that were at that time unexplainable, like the weather and shit. And, up until the Renaissance period, christianity was the driving force behind scientific discovery. The devoutly religious believed it was their duty to discover all of the miraculous things God had put at work when he created the world - the processes of nature and so forth. They wanted to have a greater understanding of God's creations, and the first sciences were entirely faith based. It was only after we had reached a point where scientific discovery began to produce facts and truths that directly contradicted the bible that faith and science became polarizing opposites.

At this point in human development, belief in God only holds us back. God's served his purpose already and it's time for us to advance beyond him. Science is literally the new religion in that it serves all of the social purposes of the older religions, and does the job in a far more effective way.
