    Do you think Honoring the Humanity is possible without a Religion?

    It is possible, but there are several problems with your assumption.
    1. Communism and national socialism killed 100 million people last century. You can't say that eliminating religion stops wars, and it certainly doesn't stop state sponsored mass murder but enables it - a state that has no moral limits has no reason not to kill many of its citizens and often does so to eliminate the competition.
    2. Social justice has become a cult, with official checklists of beliefs enforced with savage assaults verbally and even physically of those who don't conform. While the authoritarian left doesn't yet kill apostates like Islam does, they will try to get you fired from your job, destroy your relationships (like SJWs harassing Sargon of Akkad's girlfriend because of his videos and others who harass parents and friends of a politically incorrect poster to punish the person). When your social movement is branded as good, peace, love and tolerance, it seems to enable hatred of the opposite side even while calling them haters, and being intolerant of those who disagree in the name of tolerance.
    Because of this cult-like "you shall not question the official viewpoints regardless of real life data and experience" combined with horrific treatment of dissenters in the group and outside the group, we have clear proof today that religion-free movements can copy religion's "thou shall not question" mandate of religion and punishment of apostasty with just as much vigor and violence as religions.
    3. Not all religions are equal. Christians and Buddhists aren't killing people for not belonging to those faiths, while Muslims do so with disappointing regularity, thousands of attacks each year, not including the 90% of honor killings committed by Muslims. We don't have to end religion to make for a more peaceful world and respectful world - simply moderate Islam or quarantine it to a small section of the world.

      It is true that all the religions are not equal. It is the man who is misinterpreting and misusing the religious views. When speaking about Muslims, it is not the problem of their religion. What they want is to spread their nationality.

      Christianity may not be killing people today, but they have a bloody history that rivals Islam.

    I think it is possible more without a religion than with a religion.
    Religious differences and faiths create hatred and tension among those different people. They lead to violence and crimes.
    So, once we end these religions and simply treat everyone as a human being, then all these tensions, violence and crimes come to end as all people belong to a general class of humanity.
    So, when we think all people as belonging to a single group of humanity (rather than identifying them as Christian, Muslim, or Hindu), then, each one can honour each other person with compassion and humanity.
    But, even then, we may not rule out other disturbances that can arise due to wealth, status and colour of skin, etc.

    No it is not possible. Each and every religion in this world teach us the good ways to live a better life. However we see how the man has misinterpreted the religious sayings for there own benefit. It is true that violence is created based on religious beliefs but they are the people who have misunderstood and misinterpreted the religious views. People naturally believe that their own religion, race and the country is the best. Thus they do whatever to protect their religion, race and the country. This is how the humanity is destroyed and wars are created. However if one practice his or her religion by true understanding it is not hard to create humanity among us again. However this may not be practical among the extreme groups and some culture based societies but still there are Buddhists, Christians and Muslims etc. in this world who has understood the depth and the truth of their religion. It is not the religion but it is the man who destroyed humanity. Lord Buddha, Jesus Christ and Marsha Allah  are our teachers who taught us the humanity. They taught us how to love our neighbors. So how can it be possible to honor humanity without religion? Hence the best way to honor the humanity is understanding the true teaching of every religion.

    Yes, I believe it is possible.  Religions were established originally based on the Laws of Cause and Effect, which dictate that societies that honor humanity tend to do best.  What happened is that superstitions, which arise from lack of understanding, took over these religions, and people became blind to the fact that things do not necessarily function the same way in all places (example:  people in Hawaii dress skimpily not because they're immoral, but because of the climate; dressing like a Northern European would kill them through heat stroke).  So they believed anyone who didn't practice their religion and lifestyle should not be honored.
    As long as people understand the Laws of Cause and Effect wherever they travel, they can honor humanity, regardless of their religion, or even if they have one.
