Is fighting for religion any different from a generic form of fighting for supremacy with respect to territory or resources?
Fighting for religion has been a long fought battle similar to fighting for land and resources. It is human nature, as social animals, to fight for supremacy as individuals and as social groups. This behavior is instinctive in all life which is a necessity for survival.
Is it possible for humans to ever overcome their instinct to fight?
Criticizing only religion in particular only touches the surface of a bigger problem of fundamentalism. People should encourage rational thought process but we have to ask ourselves if humans can ever put aside differences.
How can we impart education onto children where the emphasis is more on critical thinking rather than gaining knowledge alone?
