    Would the world be a more peaceful place without religion?

    And why does it cause so many conflicts?

    The world would be a more peaceful pleace if people learned to check their egos and control their minds. The religon is not the problem, respect for others is the real issue. 

    If people allowed other to live in peace then peace would be the ultimate religion and it would be practiced by each individual in their own way. 

    What I observe is people are materialistic and overly possessive.  Lust, Greed and Anger are dominating the hearts of too many people so they are now encouraged to fight to get "theirs".  Ture religion is designed to bring about peace and harmony for all the members of the society. 

    Religions appear to cause conflicts, the truth is it is not the religion, it is the ego.  People need to feel that they are right and that they have the answer because "religion" is associated with core beliefs a person foundation.  To challenge a core belife of a person or a group will cause conflict unles people learn to reapsect that the other side is entitiled to existn in peace regardless of their views. 

    I wish you well.

    negative. Religion is only a cause of an effect. If we didn't have religion, we would just find another cause to produce the effect.

    Mankind as a whole is just a rude, selfish, egotistical, and violent species.

    Part of our individual thinking comes into conflict when our egotistical attitudes cross someone else's opinion. If we didn't fight about religion, then we would just fight about whatever was big enough and diverse enough.

    The reason Religion is such an offensive topic, is because people can't have one discussion about it without a mindset of making the other person adopt his views. It's such a diverse topic and almost everyone has a different opinion about it.

    Religion wouldn't cause so much arguments if people just had a more patient and open nature.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and if you think to yourself, "no one can make me change my belief" then what makes you think you can change someone else's?

    Nah. People would just admit what they truly fight over: money.

    history books are fulled with religion wars and this wouldn't happen if each religion lived by there faith there rule if they worked on the love that each religion teaches and let there god or how ever they believe in more powerful than a human to sovle the problems they face than all religions could live in peaces.you cannot bleam religion for people who are disloyal fierce without self control having no natural affection and you can't blame religion for the daliy stabbing that take place think about it don't those with no faith cause more hurt crime lacking respect for other isn't it those without faith cause more day to day social problems. the peace on earth is dispearing because no you is traning the children to care.

    Absolutely not! Religion have a legalistic policy which discourages and defines what's wrong such as murder, rape, or any violence.

    obviously. concidering the number of religious conflicts and the attrocities commited in the name of religion it scare me to think of what we'd be like if every person was religious.

    No.  I think it would be utter chaos.  The "higher power" or "fear of God" helps give people hope as well as keeping people in line, a lot less likely to do the wrong things.  Can you just imagine how much more despair their would be in the world without religion, I can.  I think it would truly destroy all of us.  Thank You for asking this wonderful question.  Keep on writing.

    Yes,the world cannot solve by the religion,but Christ is the only one who can solve the many problems we face,God is the great peace maker if we have trully Christ in our hearts by faith and accepting him as our Lord and Savior.

    it depends on the location. In an area such as the middle east? Absolutely. In America? Probably not. Many former violent thugs have found religion and stopped doing what they used to do. It depends on the situation.
