AgentAjax: so who has the right interpretation according to you, obviously you must have one in mind to make such a bold statement. if majority oh people misinterpreted the bible or whatever wouldn't that still make religion wrong because of this on going problem?


That's the whole point though, isn't it?!

According to me? confused There is no right interpretation.....'according to me'!

And, no, I don't have any particular religion in mind.

People are the 'ongoing problem', not religion. That's just my opinion, which I am entitled to. That doesn't mean its right or wrong.

Sounds like you just want to be contentious for argument's sake. Sorry, I can't warrant the time nor energy....

peace

memory_alpha: There is no question that religion has been a huge contributor to violence since recorded time, but truthfully, it's not been the only one. The acquisition of land and wealth as well as ideas and politics have contributed as well. Without religion I think there would be less violence, but it does not account for all.

actually the same Mindset drives both!

In response to: If there was no religion, would the world be at peace. ???





No I don't think it would really make that much difference.I think we'd still have hate,greed,power hungry people and obviously wars.

It would not be at peace, but at least people may have to take personal responsibility for their actions, instead of claiming it was done in the name of a religion/god.

no argument I'm curious how you arrive to these opinions attempting to separate causes and actions. No doubt that religion came via the people,so it would stand to reason that people and their religion are one.

Most wars have been a result of tribalism in the macro form ... ie nations (geo political or religions) On a micro scale you can see it amongst football clubs where the animosity occasionally leads to violence.
It is usually a battle for territory or people's minds!
