Do you believe that humankind will evolve to a stage where there will be total acceptance and understanding of people regardless of race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, gender, religion/creed and/or other superficial constructs? Do you also contend that one day(hopefully) that there will be universal peace? Conversely, do you believe that instead of evolving to a stage of universal and total acceptance, peace, and understanding that humankind will devolve into a worse state causing its near annihilation?
not a chance, at least not as long as different religions exist. i realize all the problems in the world aren't caused by only religion but it sure causes it's share. as long as religion is here, we will have wars.
Sane people have already discarded the bigotries of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age and gender, but we will never have any understanding as long as religions rule our world.
I doubt it; if anything humans are becoming more cavemen like in their thoughts and opinions.
There has been a slow process of evolution on total acceptance, but our world is not ready for peace. Many would have to give up the blame game, and take responsibility for their own life. This concept is not easily accepted.
I do not believe humankind will cause a near annihilation. Change is a process and very slow. I do not look at the world as them and we. I see everyone progressing at the speed they are suppose too, and working through the lessons they need to learn in this lifetime, and most likely other lifetimes in the future.
Everything is as it is suppose to be in my world. I take responsibility for myself, including the shadow aspects. We all have them, so peace will not be today in our outer world, but can be within us.
As much as I would love to believe the world will have universal peace and total acceptance I am not sure if that will happen..Not to say each of us cannot do our best to strive for that. I look at human nature in this way. Without a negative there cannot be a positive. Without the bad we cannot recognize the good. Sadly we have a fallen nature and there is no one perfect so we have to learn from our mistakes. If not for wars, we could not rejoice in peace...I think it is just the way it is.

Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people, immoral, or mean that we are going to hell. It just means that we think the...

If organized religions were abolished worldwide, would the chances for world peace increase?If zealots and extremists couldn't use religion as an excuse for destructive actions, would world leaders have a better chance at reaching long-term peace agreements?

How do you handle people who hate you because of your religion but make no effort to understand you?Too many times people make assumptions about a person.
