The bible is full of stories to teach us how to live good lives...so why do we have to go to church every sunday and give money to guys that are saying the same shit thats in the bible?

nobody mentioned how many people died during the renaissance because of religion...

The world would be so much better if people didn't fight for religion.

The problem is that many religious extremists get power. Religions don't force you to be a bad person. Personal beliefs and religious extremists are what have an influence.

heard it all before... bought the t-shirt

the mormans have helped out greatly in the pacific coast, the muslims have invented algebra, christian organizations send doctors and feed the youth in africa... can't see who those things can make society better eh?

there are people outside the states, y'know?

(To the one talking about mormons, muslims, christians, etc.) Religious or not, many people would be happy to help and donate.

no where near as many people would donate, you are too optimistic, people are often just greedy bastards

@AuroraCity Really? So without religion people are just greedy?

No, not all people, I just said often, I sort of have a pessimistic view of people that even the one's that don't act greedy are probably acting that way because they believe it will help them get into heaven. Not all ore even most atheists will act greedy because of social standards or because they truly are nice. If religious they may feel more inclined to donate thinking about an afterlife and all.

muslims didnt invent algebra, it was an Arab guy named Al-Kwarizmi or something like that

morality and decency are entirely independent of religion

Just wondering, have you tried it or are you dissing it without knowing about it?

I'm sure people have been religious and would agree with this post(:

Most religions try to show people how to 'live right,' are you saying that the world would be better without people TRYING to improve their own life and the lives of others?

Despite most religions teaching the right things (don't steal, etc.), not everything it teaches would fall into the "improve their own life" category, in my humble opinion.

People can live "right" without religion. Just because a person isn't religious doesn't mean they aren't good people. Also, religion hasn't always been the savior in the past.

I'm just saying that religion shows the effort that people put into improving themselves/the world, and that's not all that bad of a thing right?
