Yes we do need religion for what is right or wrong.
It's a misconception of mankind that he has reached that stage where he does not need dos and donts or guidance from a superior authority. And if you think logically, it's impossible for every human being perceiving about him or her self as liberal. And when you think that no body is watching you, the Satan takes this oppertunity for granted to misguide human. Just as when your boss is out station, most of us (humans) do a lot of other things which are out of our Job Duties and also neglect some of our Daily Routine Work. We get relaxed and think of ourselves as the boss itself and act according to our thoughts (any) which come in our mind.
Of all religions Islam is the best one. It's more than a religion, a complete way of life, the best art of living for the whole of mankind. In the past, it had already transformed the world from darkages to lightages, from hate to love and from chaos to peace and once again as propheciesed by Muhammad (peace be upon him) and other religions as well, it will do the same before end of time.
No, this Christian does not believe that you need religion to know what is right and wrong. Generally, atheists and theists know that it is wrong to torture a child or gas Jews in railroad cars and need not appeal to religion to know such things.
the lessons in the bible are nice to read to children, to let them know of some basic good examples.... one story i used to read to my children was ; obedience protects you.... they enjoyed the story and it stuck with them, they pass it on to their children...... some may not need any guidance at all but i feel those people are few and far between. Misha doesn't of course, he is fine
I don't remember who I'm quoting, but I think he was right :
Build more schools, it'll make you build less prisons. Education can reinforce morality.
I believe that discussing religion is a kind of intellectual sport that can reveal aesthetic rethoric in very agreable ways. In the other hand, it is very important to get along well with neighbours be they in the house next to yours or in Iran.
So far, discussions about the sex of angels brought us hatred, hysteria and war.
You are maybe asking yourself why I'm posting in this thread. Well, sometimes I'm a moralist.
I can understand the positives of putting your faith in such and such religion, which is why I do not think religion as a whole should be completely eradicated, however in this day and age I honestly wouldn't mind if it...

What do you think causes some people to need and seek religion while others are perfectly fine without it? Is it the environment in which they/you were raised? Is it life's trials that makes them/you either turn to...
Very rarely do I see a forum thread on Islam. I have not seen an atheist who has started a thread on Islam insulting Mohammed or Allah or just speaking out against them. Christianity and Jesus seem to be the...
