History of religion is pretty important. I would say that they go hand in hand, but if I had to choose one, I would choose religion. At least with my religion, I wouldn't repeat bad times in history because of the beliefs that we have.
We can learn from the mistakes of others - for example - without the history of Hitler and the Holocaust, we wouldn't have VOWED to NEVER let it happen again. Racial segregation - we will NEVER repeat it. NEVER be on the wrong side of history again - we look back and realise that we made mistakes, and move on, not to repeat them. History tells us who we were, and who we should either try or try not to be. We can MAKE history by doing new things, exploring and furthering ourselves more and more - making a better place (and granted, sometimes a not better place) for our children.
I thought about explaining why not religion but I do not wish to offend anyone. To put it as plainly and as respectfully as possible - Historically, religion has caused some of the things in history we do not wish to repeat - wars etc.
However, if you believe Religion is more important, then I acknowledge and respect your opinion on this.
We all perceive differently, and so I am open enough to leave room for others here. The essence of religion is to know God, an infinite as well as a finite Presence, the source of one's being. History is a story of the finite
I think we can't have one without the other; as without the history of religion to teach us about religion none would exist. I guess I believe they are both equally as important in helping to mold us in to the people we have become.
Religions, as any other institutions are part of the history of the different cultures of the world. So, to understand and study any civilization is necessary to study their religion (or absence of). On the other hand, to understand beliefs and myths of a specific religion is necessary to learn about its historic context.

Seriously why? Don't get me wrong I am sure this is a waste of time. I really need a forum filter, because I get fed up seeing all these religious topics all saying the same thing. Both sides are to blame. Many people say things just to get the other side mad, on purpose.It is fine to base your...

Would The World be A Better Place With Out Religion?I see all the fighting over Jesus and religion and I often wonder if the world wouldn't be a better place with out religion. After all no one has ever proved that God exists have they? What do you think?

Okay, I've really taken an interest in the forums for the last few days as I need something to keep my mind off of something. I've noticed a few things and came up with a few theories on HubPages groupthink. Thought it be fun to test them out, so here goes:I, technically, am a Unitarian...
