I am probably asking for it for posting this but here goes. I have spent most of my time here lisserning to people say religon is evil and how it has caused all the problems in this world but i was at mass today and they were talking about hope. This got me thinking. I came to the conclusion that religion's SOLE purpose is to give hope. Hope to those in bad situations that they will get better. Hope to the sick and dieing that there lives are not in vain. Hope to those left behind that there loved one is happy and they will see them again. I cant see anything wrong with this Then i thought that just maybe the problems in the world ARN'T caused by religion but by peoples fears and hatreds of those different from themselves. This means that if the world got rid of religion the problems would still exist but without the hope that religion can provide. Thoughts?
