Good answer religion has caused more suffering and death than any disease infact more than hitler could have dreamed of but none havd been prosecuted for their crimes, take the christians church their wealth has come mostly from suffering.
WELL said and put!
Remember 'christians' are responsible for the crusades the inquisition (much of the church's wealth stems from this as heretics property became church property) and 'witch' trials. As yet no attempt has been made by the church to repent
All man made religions have a man made god and a theory to justify it - written as given by the 'created' god. If there are no religion, humanity will not be divided in boxes of different labels.
I wish this were true for religion throughout history. This is how we should all live. However, I would alter it and say, "Be kind towards all in the world and to nature."Humans are destroying the world and people have killed in the name of religion.
So simple, yet so profound
Betty Hinduism has one God: Brahman. They speak of Sanatana Dharma (Truth is One) They have Avatars such as Krishna, Rama, Buddha. We have Christ. They have gods and deities like we have angels and archangels. Sorry, if your thoughts are unrelated.
Buddhism and jainism is atheist religion, in jainism believing in god is blasphemy. Hindu Mimamsa and Samkhya are also atheist
you are exhibiting total religious intolerance. This is a frequent failing of atheists therefore you yourself have a lot in common with atheists. Epic fail bro!
I'm just telling Betty that her answer may not be correct as there are many non theistic and atheistic religions.
If stating fact is intolerance then we better live in meadual Europe not in modern world.
And FYI I do not believe in God.
Have you heard of Islam!? Those who are faithful to the Koran kill people. How's that for good and ethical?
You are talking about a few crazies and labelling an entire religion. That could be seen as extremely bigoted.
Its the same as saying "all Scots are stingy". Ie Nonsense.
Up to 300 million crazies is not just "a few." Plus, I don't really care how you see me. The facts are the facts.
300 million! Thats bigotry. Wee Robbie ye proved my point lad.
I know you're not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but 300 million out of 1 billion is not A FEW crazies. In fact those who truly follow Islam will be violent. Islam itself is a threat to humanity. Islam equals conquest.
Wee Robbie, I'd like to see your sharp statistics on that figure. Sounds like its a figure you believe to be true.......
Nope. Buddhism has been mixed with Christianity, Shintoism, and Atheism.
I don't think Buddism believes in a higher power.
where is there love in the satanic koran?
You are absolutely right
What is common is the Journey to God's purpose for hunans,
But the problem is the roads used to get to his destination have been purposely created as many imitations of Religion that only can lead you away from our Heavenly Father.
No other animal has the ability to write and share their views with others and while all religions do not agree, all animals cannot live together. I do not understand the point you are trying to make.
Wow, a great thinking you've Ashok
Atheists don't have faith in GOD
Well put apart from the atheism absence of religion cannot be religion.
True atheists just realise with modern science theres no need for religion, the bible got the entire creation myth wrong, everything in the wrong order, not to mention the rest
I quite agree with Nigham and believe that God is one who is common for all.
I believe it's the golden rule which even the non religious can abide by for the common good.
What an answer!!
You're right Jomana
Oh, great thinking Kashif
Saqib, you explained truly
Not exactly... Well, from what I see now... Believers are having their heads chooped off on a daily basis. Once that happens, how can you say "as long as you believe you live"?
So where is the "truth" when one religion kills and persecuted another?
So wisely said true indeed
I will disagree with you on magic and myths. A belief in miracles does not involve magic and the Word of God is not a myth.
And you answered well rida
Is it religion that's needs to control others, or man's ego's in said religions..I mean i'm not religious, but don't all religions teach/preach love & peace etc?..
Who can deny it? Hina
What about Buddhism? There is no belief in a deity.
Actually there is no higher power in Laveyan Satanism, Secular Humanism, some sects of Buddhism, Taoism and a few Pagan religions. And a lot of Unitarian Universalists are atheists as well, as the religion doesn't focus on a higher power.
Yep doesn't mean they don't do it through ...
I've to agree with you Usama and believe that all the religions are against killings and if individuals do it, they do by themselves not by the religion
"All the religious are against the killing." Really? Thank you for illuminating me in this aspect... Have ever watch the news?
Yes, ideas and faith are most important as Omer mentioned
Name me a Buddhist war.
It depends on one's mindset and morality.
Very good sentence, Meer
Too true. Religions have modeled both.
Sakina, though your answer is simple but beautiful
Nasir, your sentence itself is image of God
Yes, I agree with you Rahema
Atheism doesn't have a God!
Did you mean LOVE to kill each other?
I think you talk about religion in cultural context. What about Wiccan and pagan religion, African and indian religion?
Btw one thing is correct, religion gives athourity to some people and every authority has exploited people.
I wish this were true, but how many times have we seen throughout history, and continue to see today, people killing others in the name of religion.
As a Catholic, we have the Pope. When I was a Southern Baptist, there was no spiritual leader. The Southern Baptist Convention elected a leader, who offered suggestions, appointed committees, but did not set rules on issues of faith.
I mean more like Jesus, as in somebody within the lore of the religion who set rules that are now governed by people like The Pope. But that Southern Baptist Convention sounds interesting, how often did a new leader get elected?
I have been a Catholic for more than 25 years now, so the memory is a little hazy. I think it was for multi-year terms (two or maybe four). Baptists turn to Jesus and state they are a New Testament Church. Tithing calls in the Old Testament.
hehe is that why you have a photo of a white horse as your avi? :)
I totally agree with you.
Oh, yes Nena
Not so. There is no hell in Buddhism nor in Paganism.
There is Only 1 God
There are over 10,000 recognized religions on the face of the earth. Each group claiming that their religion is the way to salvation and the other 9,999 religions are manmade lies. Each person prays to a different God and hopes that their God is list
