    At one stage of my life I thought exactly the same.
    Why bother with religion when it causes so much pain and hate in the world, so much terror.
    But I guess it also gives us something to believe in. Something that when the world all goes bad, when we are having a terrible day we at least have something to keep our faith in..
    Religion could I guess also be a uniting tool - though it seems lately it's something that is divided us.

    lol I actually knew what I wanted to say, it's just so hard to put it down in words!

    I don't know and wouldn't know - I'm not religious

    I think if a person's got good morals, then anything can go.

    Of Course most wars have been over religions, but you forget.

    That these wars are caused by "MAN" nothing more.

    All religions is, is someone not making up there own morals, and going on with others. I mean if everyone Jumps off a clief. I AIN'T GOING~!! XD

    I wouldn't say I am religious, but I do like things about every religion. I mean there are good morals to them. ^_^

    And all I think if you feel Guitly for it, and you have to think twice, then it must be wrong. =_= That doesn't apply, for sick/insane people.

    I think humans are unable to live without some form of religion. Therefore a world without religion is not a real world.

    Re: no religions? = a better world?

    These "religious" wars are the product of misinterpretation. Religion is to have something to believe in and make yourself a better person. If religion is causing you to kill people then it isn't the religion you are following but the teachings of someone who has misinterpreted the fundamentals of that particular religion.

    Its not religion that is ruining the world. Its the people who change it for their benefit who ruin religion. Anyone can manipulate a person looking for answers by making up some kind of religion. Its a scam thats existed for ages. And these are the ones who cause the world to go downhill.

    Religion isn't bad. Its the people who use it for bad stuff that ruin it.

    I am afraid your statement is fundimentally flawed.

    You see, all wars are not related to religion. In fact very few of them are and those usually only occur when you have a political entity that is also religious. Saying that any war that occured by the hands of the Holy Roman Empire is a religious war is like saying that everytime Egypt went to war it's because of religion since their Pharoh's were God and therefore justified their actions. Yes religion can be brought into a war but usually you will see it used as a tool by a political entity to create support by it's populace for what in actuality is a politically motivated military action.

    So if it is actually politics that causes war then perhaps we should be determining just what part of politics it is that causes so much destruction and try to find ways to prevent that from happening. Personally I think it is the thirst for power.
