I believe 'religion' is the most sensitive word of all. How do you think the world will be ,without any religion, one were science is everything? if only people had logical explanation for everything, will there be peace? will we be more advanced? what are the chances us being less stupid? or will it just be chaos? or it doesn't matter coz the world wouldn't change as we are what we are?

ps: its not a question of being atheist or anything like that.., just a perspective on things if there is no such thing as 'religion' .

for simplicity sake, lets just assume humans never developed any sense of 'religion' during evolution. for all those who disagree with evolution please assume that may be god was angry with all the science and erased religion from humanity's mind , just to teach a lesson.

A world without Religion whatsoever,isn't possible.

It's too entrenched,and aint ever going to happen.

I am a Christian,and that's where it stops.

Religion is better than Witchcraft,but only just.

Haven't we enough threads on Religion?

"Religion is better than witchcraft?" Care to explain that? Do you even know what witchcraft is (this should be good)?

Simply put, a world without religion will not happen because people will never be able to agree exactly how to define "pure science." :thumbsup:

If and when Humans have an answer for everything then, yes, we may dispense with religion. And personally I would not want to live in a world where all mysteries are solved. It would be a very boring and monotonous existence.

BTW, I consider myself a devout and pious Agnostic.

To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

may be in the far future , humans stop believing in god for various reasons, and science is all, and mysteries are treated just as unknowns and nothing much. ( a world of atheists is one) ., i know its very unlikely.., its IMPOSSIBLE , just asking how it world would be without it? i mean 'religion' didn't come out of nowhere, it was either created by man , or imposed upon by mankind by god., now what if god didn't want to take credit for his actions.. ., let us decide our own path etc.


ps: i just want to know different views., a single line doesn't explain it all., so if u don't mind, would u care to explain. i am sure most of you might have solved mathematics at one point or other., taking assumptions, hypothesis etc. so instead of posting a quirky one line,u know...write more...., its up to you though..., and if u have posted it already somewhere would u mind copy pasting relevant lines here.. thank you :thumbsup:

How Crazy can Religions get?

Look at this?

Saudi judge weighs paralysis punishment
18:04 AEST Fri Aug 20 2010
1 hour 1 minute ago
Salah Nasrawi


A Saudi judge has asked several hospitals in the country whether they could damage a man's spinal cord as punishment after he was convicted of attacking another man with a cleaver and paralysing him, the brother of the victim said Thursday.

Abdul-Aziz al-Mutairi, 22, was left paralysed and subsequently lost a foot after a fight more than two years ago. He asked a judge in northwestern Tabuk province to impose an equivalent punishment on his attacker under Islamic law, his brother Khaled al-Mutairi told The Associated Press by telephone from there.

He said one of the hospitals, located in Tabuk, responded that it is possible to damage the spinal cord, but it added that the operation would have to be done at another more specialised facility.

Saudi newspapers reported that a second hospital in the capital Riyadh declined, saying it could not inflict such harm.

Administrative offices of two of the hospitals and the court in Tabuk were closed for the Saudi weekend beginning on Thursday and could not be reached for comment.

How could a Hospital or Doctor ever do that? That is completely against the Oaths that ALL Doctors give before Practicing.

Religion ...
not NEED but just WANT
(Human beings created the Religions in Early Ages ... and modernize them nowadays ... )


Is there something that can explain and satisfy every problems for human beings in this World?

Religions couldn't be the absolute solution for everything. Neither is science.
Just human beings solve their life's problems as much as they can and are seeking the way of survive or life style, on their own.

Religions might be one of the imagination orientated Human Philosophical Accessories.
On other hands, religions might be some derivatives of human thoughts and ideas which are based on the Human Original Fear. Commonly, religions are of what the collection of moral teachings or instructions for "live and dead" and arguably even for the after-life.

However, "existence or termination of existence", "live or dead", couldn't be actually defined by Religious instructions. These all can not be satisfied by only religions.

If and when there is no religion in the world, nothing can change about "existence or termination of existence" of Human beings. Religion is not "NEED". It just a "WANT". They want the Perfect One who will take care of them, who will guide them the right way for their live. They want to pray or they want to pay Him completely hundred percent respect. They 'want' to get help of religious satisfactions and thus there are religions for human beings in this world whereas these religions are not necessaries or these religions may be imaginary ones!

For another aspect, human being could live freely, could survive freely and could even die freely, when they would to do so. There is nothing above human beings. Life is not already written. And life has own active life itself! Human beings could able to create their life themselves as much as they would be more preferable. Religions are not perfect for who do not believe in religions but while religions are perfect ones for who do believe in religions.

The choice is ours!

But most of human beings, as I already discussed, live by means of unconscious fear and they ever need something like what "Belief" that can temporarily satisfy their fear or somewhat. Most of them want it as everlasting. That's why religions may last forever! Otherwise, human beings create the Religions. Therefore, religions may last forever whileas there're human beings in this world.

By the way, I think ...
We, human beings, just need the ethical and optimal principles for mankind/ society/ community/ such and such.
World without religions, it should be!
But it never could be because of human beings to themselves.


Just my thought and opinion!

Thanks for your eyes.
your friend,
cmos

3. Actually, I'm not an Atheist, nor an Agnostic, nor a Christian, nor a Buddhist, nor a person who beliefs in any other religions else . I'm just non-religion. Perhaps free man!
Anyway, I do respect to the others who have respective religions.
What they do is not definitely who they are! )

Of non-being there is no coming to be ; Of being there is no ceasing to be !

Cmos, you asked -
Is there something that can explain and satisfy every problems for human beings in this World? -
There is actually. but for something so valuable you have to be prepared to work for it.
You have to ignore all the rubbish that you have been taught/heard over the years and make the effort to read the Bible.
Test whether or not it is Gods word - ask Him for help to understand what you are reading and you will be answered - if you are sincere in your desire for the answer.
Regards JohnCe.

I would have no idea, actually. It could be fine without religion or worse-off.

However, I would prefer for the world to not be without religion really.
