What are the ways that abolishing religion will drastically improve and advance society and culture?
Analytical responses please.
Perhaps without the complexities of 'religion', humanity would finally come to know God. That of course, would be a logical reason for evil to promote religion.
Interesting this is not the first time the thought appeared, to many it may be a surprise that is exactly in the bible as a phophesy that is going to happen,
Notice ! Rev 28:2 - 3 And he cried out with a strong voice, saying: “She has fallen! Babylon the Great has fallen, and she has become a dwelling place of demons and a place where every unclean spirita and every unclean and hated bird lurks! 3 For because of the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, all the nations have fallen victim,and the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality with her,and the merchantsc of the earth became rich owing to the power of her shameless luxury.”
Here today I remember some one writing a hub about the riches of the churches their extravagant lifestyles there rich structures
This is written they will lose it all.
They will lose it by the wild beast she rides the back.
GOVERNMENT will strip their riches.
I never knew just commenting as you have as well, would lead to harrasment, I commented on the subject, I never said your name , but just used the comment box.
Next I always comment on religion and subjects, and I do not search you out to comment.
This q/a is not for argument. Please don't comment on Austinstar's answers. Just comment on yours and anyone's else unless h/she does not wish for you to do so. It ISN'T worth the hassle, thank you.
gmwillians I correct my self it was some time ago she did say not to post to her, when I did I did not think of her request just love to answer any questions that has the word religion or bible. Forgive me for my error, and I will do as agreed.
Just look what science and logic have accomplished in the last 100 years alone! We can now walk on the moon! We can communicate world wide in an instant. We have cars, trains, planes, and superhighways! We have the best medical services in the world (albeit not the cheapest). We live longer, we have less sickness, we stay in contact with our families and loved ones more often, we have air conditioned homes with running water and indoor plumbing! The list of science and practical applications of the sciences have lengthened our life spans and made us much more comfortable than ever!
Seriously, a religionist would have us back in the dark ages with the bubonic plague, lepers being shunned, women unable to vote and being treated like slaves, witch hunting, pedophilia, incest and murdering people who worship a "different" god.
Unfortunately, we still experience the worst of religious beliefs every day - the notion that "prayer" will heal, feed the hungry, save homes from forest fires, or even help you get out of bed. This is a mindset that encourages people to believe in the absurd notion that a "god" will come and save their sinning heart (after they die, of course).
Religious terrorism is the worst nightmare one can have. Christians killing Muslims, Muslims killing Christians, and "believers" killing atheists and agnostics.
Abolishing religion might, I say might, stop some of that nonsense. Or we could just put all the religious people in one place and build a wall around them and let them ask their gods for providence. Let the rest of the world continue to improve our lives and our planet.
The world claims religion in different degrees , it is not just the name , it is the practice and belief that makes religion .
Your country , your, rituals rather that is a tribal pratice, your riches that people live for can be your religion.
Grace, please remove any comments to my answer by K and T as I refuse to even try to communicate with this person. She literally makes me want to vomit. Or simply delete my whole answer please. Thank you.
Austinstar, I can't; she does have the right to speak but we choose not to respond. I usually leave the answers there and NEVER RESPOND. I just don't respond nor argue to ppl I disagree w. Not worth it!
I have asked her several times to not comment on my writing here on HP. I suppose I could report her for harrasment.
Total religious intolerance has and always will be the hallmark of a dying society. Abolishing religion only offers a society based on money porn and a disappearing conscience
You are predicating on the assumption that all religions hold the same beliefs, and they don't. You also make the assumption that there aren't scientist that find religion in science. The great conflict of religions is the tenets that make those that believe those particular traditions are the only ones in the right, and all other worship false idols.
It is an unfortunate truth that many derive moral standards based on the religion they practice, and that's not to say that if human beings came to get rid of religions entirely, that we would be able to develop a non-religious morality. Another issue is those that follow blindly what they are told by their religious leaders without questioning or doing their own investigation and research.
I don't believe that religion and science are so contradictory. They are two diverging paths that humanity has taken to try to understand the universe around us, and justify our own existence. They work within the limits of the knowledge that we hold at any one time. Religion is is not inherently wicked, nor is science completely good, but they provide balance and counter balance to each other, a yin and yang of our existential quest for truth.
Religion will never be abolished in a free country. There are cultures that do not tolerate religion. North Korea is one of them. Do you really think North Korea has an advanced culture and society? Communist China was another place. Don't seem like good places to live.
abolishing religion is something that may never happen in the near future. people are so bound to their own religion that many of them have no tolerance for other religions or atheists. i strongly believe that abolishment of religion is one of the solutions to make the world a better place. every person who follows a particular religion follows the customs and practices of that particular religion which may not be liked by the people of another religion. these indifferences are the cause of violence and unrest.

There is no Atheist text.This ensures Atheists can't manipulate the ambiguous writings from 2,000 - 3,000 years ago to justify their actions.As far as I am aware, no one has committed mass murder in there name of there being no God.The vast majority of modern religions have had countless atrocities...

Why do religious people often insist that religion is what creates moral behavior?As an agnostic/atheist who works hard to do the right thing every day I find this insulting and ridiculous. After all, if prayer and religious beliefs equaled morals there would be no controversy with priests...

There are an extreme number of Religions in this world, some dead and some alive. How can the followers of one religion be so sure they are correct?I post this here because I come from a Christian family and they're constantly telling me that "Christ is the way and the light" and...

After reading and contributing to so many posts about Christianity on here I'd love for someone to answer this question. Which form (if any)of Christianity is the real deal? It's one thing to get into heated debates over who believes in what religion, but it seems strange to me that there are so...

It's a question that has come up more than once and I have a preconceived notion about it. Do you know the Bible? Have you read it? How "advanced" is your study of the subject? Is it a 'know thy enemy' thing, or an interest in theological studies with belief absent?

Why do you feel that many people have deserted a particular religion or simply chosen not to followHave the major religions not moved with the times? As an agostic i'd like to see what others feel and see?
