With only one religion in the world, would people still continue to kill each other continuously?
If there would be only one religion and all people would have same beliefs all over the world, would we still find reasons to kill each others in such a high quantities? There wouldn't be reasons for religious wars because all would believe in the same thing. Could there still be nationalistic wars or would we all see each others as brothers and sisters?
Yes, I honestly think they would, because it is not religion that kills. it is how people are brought up and what they are taught to believe.
Religion isn't way most killing takes place. Anger, mental illness and the list goes on. So no, one world religion will not stop killing.
Actually, there was a TV show that created an episode about this. In the episode three different groups under the same religion were fighting for the correct name of the religion. Try not to say "see each others as brothers and sisters". Some siblings kill each other and have incest. I don't exactly want that to continue on.
Hell we'd kill each other over who was slightly taller than the others. Humans are a tribal culture and it's in our nature to war with other tribes. Since we don't have any clear cut tribes we tend to design our own.
You know we'd just kill each other trying to decide which one was the ONE religion don't you?
Actually, isn't that what we do already???
The difference of religion is not the only reason why people kill one and another. To my point of view; the egoism, honor, poverty, needs, the lust to possess a power, fanaticism to their exlusive community, the tendency to show one's power to other, women, and property are some things that sometimes make that matter occurs.
There is no guarantee for the peace in this world under one religion for man (Adam) was created naturally to pass all things that we have go through since the beginning of our live till the end. And they were his children (Habil and Qabil) who started the first murder in this world.
Take a look at the country whose people hold single religion; is there no murder there ? Scientifically, the country is the representative of the whole world if we dream of the same thing in a larger scope. We can see the reality ahead of us, very clearly......!
