Do you guys believes that religion is the main reason of conflict in planet earth?
After a lot of study about religion and history I am able to concluded that two religions are agree to war and kill millions of people to prove that they are best.examples Christian killed Jewish ( Germany). Arabs attacked in sub- content .jewish in gulf... Great examples of war on the bases of religion.
Without religious and legal systems in place there would be far more chaos.
Legal systems evolved out of religious systems. Therefore without religions there would be no society. Religion and it's offshoot law are stopping conflict not adding to it.
It's very easy to see.
Then what is the point to kill people on the name of religion.
My sentiments Oztinato. Bless you.
Shehzad, because of Ignorance; of the inner enemies that I have named. Christianity did this too. But not Christ , Rumi or Hafiz. Continue to live by their messages. Never worry about things U cannot change.
The main reason? As disruptive as I think religion can be even I wouldn't be the first to say it's the main reason for conflict around the world and throughout history. Though with that I said, I believe ISIS works primarily off of their religion of Islam. Hatred of the west surely plays a part to...
But overall I would put religion as a heavy hitting contributor but not necessarily the only reason.
No, my Dearest Brother,
Study is of the mind, Spirituality is the language of the childlike Heart.
As far as I know, all those that we look up to and either revere or appreciate, all taught about Love. This includes Rama, Krishna, Buddha, Christ, Chaitanya, Ramakrishna in chronological order and a few more...
Your statement, intentionally or not, true or not, may inspire flames of resentment in some, and it is very rare for those of empathy to use it, except of course where the inner intention or motive is pure.
I have mentioned the enemies a few times: Ego, Anger, Lust, Attachments and Greed. These leads to the others that we are all familiar with: Fear, insecurity, jealousy, hate ... wars simply do not happen without their presence. They live inside us, not books or doctrines.
All enemies are inside us, not outside. I carry so many burdens! Still I know this, and I also know the medicine: Prayer both verbal and interior, meditation, service to mankind in a spirit of Love and brotherhood...
My neighbour's garden has such beautiful flowers! Day after day she waters, prunes, gives manure ... she even sings and talks to them. On the other hand, my own garden is a right mess. I'm to busy with modern consumerism, greed; instinctual survival and family, etc, to look after my garden. So it is very unfair for me to expect mines to be like hers.
Truly speaking, there is an inner Bible or scripture, like the flowers, called the Soul. If we do not feed it, then why should we expect changes? I say first we feed the Soul. Clean the mirror and then let us see if these external problems will remain.
Finally, it is God's world, not ours. We grow at the pace He sets, and sometimes we are actually meant to be where we are. Without the inner purity, we will not be able to hold the Higher Light, and our inner vessel will break. So see the beauty in the thorns as well as the roses, and all will be well. Much Love.
I believe that the nature of humanity is the main source of conflict in planet earth, and religion just creates a convenient justification of starting that conflict.

Why is science and religion in conflict with each other?Why is science and religion in conflict with each other? Aren't they both seeking truth? Science is more of a how and religion is more of a why.

Religion preaches love, peace and unity, but provokes hatred, war and disunity. Would the world be a better place without religion?
