    Removing religion would not make the world any better or worse.

    Differences in beliefs--religious or otherwise--are often caused by fundamental disagreements about how to correctly and/or accurately interpret our personal experiences. Removing religious beliefs will not resolve such disagreements.
    That's true. If it's not religion, people will find something else to condemn and persecute others for.

    No they don't. They have belief that man made global warming is real .........
    I didn't read past that point. You're posts aren't of sufficient value to warrant reading. You can't make something true by repeating it over and over.

    Even if religion was somehow magically removed from the minds of people then something else would fill the void. Just look at Raelism (raelians). They are atheists but they nonetheless have some of the silliest and stupidest beliefs.

    Being an atheist doesn't magically make someone a critical thinker.
    That's true, but people often become atheists as a result of first becoming critical thinkers. If we had mass atheism as a result of that, we would enjoy the elimination of holy wars and religious terrorism. But you're right -- if people became atheists simply because it was drilled into them, they would lack critical thinking abilities.

    I'm going to have to look up Raelism. I'm not familiar with it; thanks for the heads up.

    I'm going to have to look up Raelism.
