    I have a similar opinion: The planet will be better off without religions.
    My associate feels people will always find some way alienate each other.

    Code: "I`d rather math nerds break into a slap-boxing match over hypotheses than have people doing honor killings or gunning each other down over different takes on the same imaginary character."
    Associate: "Pythagoreanism."
    Code: "OH, SHI-!!!"

    Yes because REVEREND Martin Luther King Jr. would agree that a world without religion is the best world.

    Religion will always be an excuse that powerful people use to convince people of lesser status to fight for land/resources/food/etc.

    CodeJockey-The planet will be better off without religions.

    That is your opinion, others are of the opinion there should only be ONE religion, and the majority`s opinion is that freedom of religion is a basic right.

    The problem the first two have is simple: It is impossible to legislate (or force through other means) a person`s, or population`s, beliefs.

    So, instead of tilting at windmills trying to bring people over to your `religion` (that religion is evil) why not respect other`s right to believe what they want, as long as it doesn`t intrude on the rights of others?

    Gee, I must have missed the `invade the heathen`s country` lesson in Sunday School.

    Uh, Grendel, you weren`t paying attention. Numbers 31:16: "...Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves..."
    That says to commit genocide in order to abduct their daughters.

    While I would be tempted to make religion illegal, I`d rather people grew out of it and I suspect they will.

    The "genocide" was to deal with the nephilim.

    This is retarded. If you want to live in peace then live in peace. You don`t need to get rid of countries or religion, all you need to do is be smarter than a terrorist. Only you control your actions don`t try blaming religion or government for your acts of hate.

    CodeJockey-That says to commit genocide in order to abduct their daughters.
    The story, of course, was more involved than that over simplified interpretation.

    Nor was it used as an example of how to invade other countries (which was my point).

    CodeJockey-While I would be tempted to make religion illegal
    Of course you would, as you have no problem trampling on anyone else`s rights as long as the rights `you` like are followed to a tee.

    There`s a word for people like that.

    Take all those things away and what`s left?
    Government!
    Just let the Government run everything, with NO checks or balances! That`ll work brilliantly!
    Or, you know, not.

    5cats - lets put aside the line "no country". even if there was just the government, there would still be checks and balances. they are PART of the government. what i dont understand is how you dont know this or how you might think that religion and war is part of the checks and balances. then i go back to all of your 22640 posts and it all makes sense. you have no idea how the US government actually works. why dont you just worry about Canada`s problems, enjoy your free healthcare and stfu.

    Always loved that song. I first heard it when I was 10.
    That was when I started to question the indoctrination I was receiving at First Baptist Church Elementary School.
    The next year I was in public school, having been kicked out of Religious school for asking too many question the teachers couldn`t answer.

    :Facepalm:

    Why is this damn song the hippy world anthem?
    I get sick every time this damn utopian song is played. Will you hippies please pull your head out of your freaking butts and realize that utopia is a damn myth.

    Yes, I know you have feels for this song. Yes, you really still like John Lennon, but damn get over it already. Just switch to another song or something, perhaps "Hey Jude", I`d even sing with you on that one. Because we can make things better, but utopia is a freaking pipe dream.

    Really sad to see all the negativity on this thread. Not surprised to see it, just bummed by it.

    Good post, diemorondie. I wish more folks could dig it.

    Crakrjak: Peace is utopia too but we still try to accomplish that. Most ideologies are unattainable but we still try. Because it`s not the end goal, it`s the journey there what matters. What i have learned about you is that you don`t want those things, you want guns in everyones pockets, more fossil fuels and pollution. And Christianity to trump all other religions so of course you don`t like this song.

    Actually, the line, "living life in peace" should be "living like zombies"
