  • There's an estimated 30,000 different religions now and there is all this chaos. Can it get any worse then this?
  • I think better. People wouldn't be forcibly converting each other, blowing each other up and gunning down abortion clinic workers in the name of their religion. I think that religion can do some good (example being religious charities and whatnot), but the harm outweighs the good.
  • Ending religion will not end the bloodshed. They can always fall back on money.
  • I don't think it would make much difference. I view religion as a coat of paint which people use to colour what they are going to do anyway. They would still do the same things, good and bad, in support of their nation, people, language or whatever. Most religious conflicts are also fights over some sort of resources - oil, land etc.
  • There would be less hypocrits in the world
  • When religion has accomplished its purpose - it will no longer be necessary and neither will the world as we know it...
  • Take a closer look at that song. In it Lennon is promoting a world without religion, possessions, or governments. In other words, he is presenting the communist manifesto in the form of a song. While communism has some appealing ideas, it just will not work. There have been many, many attempts to implement communist philosophies and they have ALL ended in very oppressive governments.
  • Yes, I can imagine a world with no religion and it can only be a better one. Men would still commit atrocities as they always have, it's their nature to be cruel, however, they won't be able to do readily do it in the name of religion of a made-up god. And, IMHO, the world will never be free from religion, there are entirely too many gullible people who need it and many more intelligent and conning ones who depend on it to control and prosper
  • So WHAT is ' religion'??? It is an organized worship of a CHOSEN GOD.. And given that there is only ONE creating God, there should be only ONE religion...Doing things HIS way. How do you tell which one is the correct one? By its strict obedience... And just where do you find the instructions to be obedient... Check out every religious book and find the one that gives instructions... All the ' eastern' religions??? no books, just traditions. Islam???? Its 'god' has no proper name. Allah just translates as ' god'. Christianity ???? We have a book, the Bible, but which branch is obedient to it???? Catholics?? they disobey Exodus 20: 4,5 Other branches do also. But which group uses almighty God's NAME??? Psalm 83:18.... (Exodus 6:3) And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty, but with regard to my name Jehovah I did not make myself known to them. Only one group fits,,, (Acts 5:42) And every day in the temple and from house to house they continued without letup teaching and declaring the good news about the Christ, Jesus. HOUSE TO HOUSE...
