Faith, it is fine. Religion? It's a bunch of propaganda set up by certain people in order to push their beliefs and fortify their power and influence in the society.



Chinese are as much irreligious as it can go. And tell you what there have been far less riots and idiotic wars in their history.

Tianamen square. yeah rolling tanks on peaceful protesters. thats better than riots right?
forcing people to become communists
i think China falls in ico's category 3

I am not saying that abolishing religion will cause less wars and make the world more peaceful.

There will come a time when religion will fail to convince people to stop finding answers. That's when people would transform to religious nerds.

However meanwhile people would still kill each other for money, power and shi* like that.

We are talking about the entire history of China rather than the opressive nature of their current government or their commie leanings. Get better comprehension skills, that's the advice I'll give you.

China wasn't divided on religious lines for a start, and their religions didn't fight for centuries as the Abrahamic religions did in the medieval times. Nor do you see mass religious riots as you saw in Gujarat in China.

IMO we do not need any religion ...it only creates discrimination among the humans ....so its better to live as one rather than different people from different religion

^^ that just sounds well at a thinking level. Religion atleast manages to create a sense of good and evil in minds of people.

Yes religion is needed.In case of hinduism, we have many hindu temples which cater the hunger of poor ppl.Nothing is greater than feeding the hungry.

Who told religion creates divide?Temples today dont ask ur religion to enter or to have a food at a feast.

So religion is necessary as it helps ppl.

you say nothing greater then feeding hungry people and no one asks what religion you are of, then why do you need religion? you just need humanity.. you don't feed because of religion but because of humanity..

Humanity is answer to all this, not religion

religions do not create divides directly but people can use religion to create divides
Any Religion's general purpose and message is to help people spiritually,create a feeling of fraternity and generally to create a feeling of respect and reverence towards God
what religion has become today is what people have made it into.nowadays power hungry people use religion to create divisions in society and teach wrong things to the faithful



and generally most anti-religion people are upset because something bad may have happened in thier life
thats why they're bitter towards God and Religion.they might deny it but such experiences in thier life remain in thier subconscious mind and affect thier decisions/views

+1.I read an article recently in TOI.That almost many Britain will be Non-Believers by 2030sform to non-believers in britain

Like now in India some people still say hes an *****.We should stay away from him,This student is an *******.We should either not give him admission or ask him lots of donation.

London, March 3 (IANS) Britain may no longer be a Christian country by 2030 as the number of non-believers is set to overtake the number of Christians, a media report said.

Christianity is losing more than half a million believers every year, while the count of atheists and agnostics is going up by almost 750,000 annually, the Daily Mail reported.

Research by the House of Commons Library found that while Christianity has declined, other religions have seen sharp increases.

In the last six years, the number of Muslims has surged by 37 percent to 2.6 million; Hindus by 43 percent and Buddhists by 74 percent. But the number of Sikhs and Jewish believers fell slightly, according to the Mail Friday.

God is a recent prolem, religion was knowledge the earliest oral traditions being converted to written word. God, faith, belief etc are all relatively recent additions to religion, and only a small aspect of it, religious texts were the only source of history and geography at their time, and all religions stress on studying, so its not really that diff from science, or logic
Kapila, the first of the saptarishis, the earliest known Indian whose philosophies survive was an atheist
