    When you say the word religion, it is not a singular thing, even though it is lumped under a single word. There are a dozen main religions, with each religion having its own philosophy, which is different from others. If any of these religion teaches war and destruction, it can be harmful. However, they would need the cooperation of science/atheism or it would only has sticks and stones to fight with, thereby limiting its power. Most religion teach the paths of wisdom and peace, which is beneficial, since it balances the extremes of human nature, which can make useful technology harmful.

    In current the times, the most tangible religion of destruction is the Muslim religion; holy war. But since they shun most of the advances of science and technology, they are limited to a terror nuisance. This degree of nuisance is nevertheless dependent on atheist=science invention. Countries like Iran, who wish to acquire nukes, need the cooperation of science/atheism before they can be a real threat. They need to reach out beyond the limits of their religion, into atheism, to learn the ways of mass destruction using science=atheism.

    Do the math. Most scientists are atheist. Science is responsible for almost all advances in technology. Technology is a dual edge sword which can build or destroy. Atheism can build or destroy, with modern atheism preferring destroy as inferred by their constant attach on religion. They fixate on destruction since religion is designed to limit mass destruction being so retro.

    Umm... I don't think you did the math.

    Science builds the tools and religion turns them into weapons. Throughout history it has been religion, not science, that used technology for destructive purposes.

    Only if religion disappears from the world will there be hope for humanity. Pay attention to this particular paragraph from that article to see why religions cause so much conflict in the world...

    "In its war against the Nigerian state, Boko Haram has singled out government institutions, especially schools, for attack. One of its tenets is that Western-style education, not based on the Koran, in conventional schools is sinful and un-Islamic"

    Religion makes life interesting. Which is your problem Q, you are SO BORING! You are so boring, you would fail the Turing test. You are so boring, pigeons think you're a statue (and poop on you). You are so boring, the mountains yawn with boredom when you're around. You are so boring people don't notice you. You are so boring, people trip over you and wonder what happened,

    Sorry, but Grimms Fairy Tales and Aesops Fables are far more interesting than any religion can offer. What's so interesting about a dead guy on a cross?

    What a child.

    No, I disagree. Religion is so much more powerful and exciting than story telling. I've tried both.

    Ah, so based on the above link, murdering people in the name of god is powerful and exciting for you?

    Yes, I understand believers see enemies everywhere, that is why they murder innocent people in the name of their god.

    Do you think it would be peace if there were only atheists? Come on I don't think you have thought it through.

    LOL. There would be no such thing as atheists if there were no religion. YOU obviously haven't thought it through.

    The only logical conclusion I can come to is that in the struggle to free the world of religion every last living creature has been eradicated.
    So if there is no religion there are no atheists either. The place has been sterilized. Purified!

    Uh, religions are not people, they are ideologies. Your conclusion is nowhere near logical, it is completely stupid.
