Peter Gallic Posted over 4 years ago Has religion outlived it's usefulness? I think that this whole question is irrational. Politics has caused many more wars and turmoil than religion. Politics assumes that ones party can dictate right and wrong. It assigns power to persuasive people. So why, if you find religion so threatening do you not see the same threat in politics? And how many so called religiously motivated actions are really political cloaked in religion. In my experience religious belief is a lot more rationale than non-religious belief. IN fact religion is responsible for more of the creativity that has lead to breakthroughs in art and science than non religious activity. The more rational question is why people are threatened by religion. One the non-religious are a very arrogant group, believing that their perceptions and their logic is far superior to the 98% of humanity that has believed in some form of Deity. Rather than raise a question about whether or not they have missed the the boat they attack the majority. Oh and btw the way there have been many wars and conflicts that were started and encouraged by atheists. Communism was atheistic in principal. Should we talk about the 50 million or so people that were killed in Communist conflicts. Oh, thats right religious people condemned those activities. How irrational of them. So it seems to me the real question is why are you attacking religion? What is so threatening to you that you have to attack religion? Is it guilt, or some unexpressed desire? Or is there really some truth to the argument?
