Can you imagine a world without land? Resources? Opinions? It won't make a difference other than what they base their decision on. Hitler after all sought power and ethnic cleansing and wasn't really a practicing Christian. Hate was his downfall and it was rooted in racism and a lust for power. Was Chairman Mao a religious zealot? Stalin? Evil is a part of human nature regardless of whatever label is placed upon the reason for acting.

 

How about we imagine a world of free people and not totalitarian, socialist governments that took around 200+ million people off the face of the Earth in the 20th century. Religion had little if anything to do with those atrocities.

Socialism is not the issue, regardless of your definition of "socialism".  

Racism, and all the other issues can come out of people regardless of whether socialism is part of it or not.

Nothing would exist without a creator, because something can't come from nothing. Believing God exists and created something is infinitely more plausible than nothing spontaneously producing something. So, if there was no religion, and therefore no God, then there wouldn't be an Earth to compare to this Earth, nullifying the question altogether.

Except God doesn't come from religion.  Religion comes from God.  

Even if I don't believe in you, that doesn't mean you cease to exist.  Suppose for whatever reason, that God didn't reveal himself to man, and we developed without knowing anything about God.  What would that world look like?

Then your god is created because it couldn't come out of nothing.



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

I'm not sure if the world would be a better or worse plase to live, but I'm sure about one thing,A lot of games out there are based on Relegion, so if the world don't had a single religion we would lost a lot of Legends and a lot of games would not exist, like God of War, Persona, etc.



Romans with nuclear weapons, mongols with predator drones, vikings with submarines. Truly wonderful.



Hate will stay,violence will stay,we will still have wars because it's in the human nature.

The world would be w better place.




You are not thinking rationally here. Religions exist because there are questions we will never know the answers.

How did time and space start?
Did time and space have a beginning?
Or does time and space have no beginning and no end?
Do parallel universes exist?
etc..

There are only theories to answer these questions.
and the one question that creates religions:

What is going to happen after we die?

Now, have you ever asked yourself that last question? What is going to happen to me when i die? I have no doubt that anyone with a conscious mind have asked and will ask themselves that question. Religions offer an answer to that question. Some people choose to believe in religions and some don't. That's how it is, that is life.

I do believe that humans will create religions even if you destroy all evidences of all religions.

Yes, religions come with problems. But thinking of a world without religions is like you saying "I wish my clothes are not on fire" when your clothes are actually on fire!! It doesn't solve anything.

I believe John Lennon tried.



It wil be the same world cause people will find other reasons to kill people for .
Games will kill each other cause ps4 is better then xbox or sports fans will each each other cause they sont like the same tnings people will allwasy kill each other



VITA 32 GIG CARD.250 GIG SLIM & 160 GIG PHAT PS3

I think it would be worse. People would lose their morals and society would begin to decay.
