It's society as a whole's job to do that, to teach children the rights and wrongs. Religion should be for mostly closure and hope now, rather than the morale enforcer its been for centuries.
Also it should be moderate like everything less we have another Jones-town.


Religion should ideally be relegated to history as an intangible cultural artifact, yet celebrated in much the same way that Greeks, Italians and Scandinavians celebrate their pantheons of old without actually worshipping Thor or Zeus or sincerely believing in the old religions. This has already kind of happened with Christmas and Easter. It's a real pity most Egyptians don't bother with Amun-Ra these days. We can marvel at Abbasid-era architecture without actually worshipping Allah and idolizing Mohammed. A prosperous, democratic, secular Middle East would be nice. As for China, the ancient civilization fuses elements from animistic ancestor worship, Mahayana Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism in a sort of syncretistic mix, such that there is no clear dividing line between religion and culture like there is in the West, and the one blends seamlessly into the other.

Once we render religion subordinate to culture and national identity, people will have something exceedingly rich and colorful to rally behind and be proud of without the religious aspect of their culture holding them back in practice. The solution is to replace theocracy with secularism, and not so much blind faith with atheism. The latter is a bonus, but it's by no means a requirement. Replace religion but fail to implement secularism and establish liberal, democratic institutions to fill the void, and we run the risk of replacing one authoritarian ideology with yet another equally totalitarian ideology that calls itself atheist.


When you don't find something to fill the void of religion, something like anti vax usually takes its place. People do need something to believe in, but I wish it was something we could see with our eyes and know is real, and not a fantasy that inspires insanity among millions

Like buddhism, but you notice most atheists aren't offended by Buddhists because Buddhists don't condemn you to eternal hellfire for literally everything

True atheism may be difficult or impossible to prove, but I think agnosticism is an ultimately true belief, and that is that we don't know if God exists. we have no evidence of the gods of the world's religions, and while we can't definitely disprove they exist, a lot of evidence suggests that, and in the end its up to the religious believer to prove his God is real. It isn't up to an atheist or agnostic to prove he isn't

There's still been some pretty nasty stuff done by buddhists. They have this peaceful reputation, but they're just as susceptible to the same violent acts as other religions.

No and yes?
Personally I dont think it did atleast nowadays you cant declare a religious war without being shunned.

Regardless religion or not the reason for conflict still exists
Desire for power and wealth.
If religion isn't the casus beli something else would take place.

It isn't Buddhism itself calling for the violence though. Violence among Buddhists in southeast Asia is often due to ultranationalism and not teachings of the religion. It's like blaming the teachings of Catholicism for the troubles. The IRA doesn't blow things up in the name of the pope. They do it in the name of reuniting Ireland and the Catholic label is basically just a shorthand for Irish Republican

I mean, not particularly? There's no need to prove anything to anyone. A believer doesn't have to justify their beliefs to a non-believer, and likewise vice-virsa.

I'm sure that every religion would argue the same. It's not Christianity that's calling for the death of gays, it's those extremist. It's not Islam that wants to purge the heathens, it's just those extremists.

No it hasn't. hasn't hurt much either, the world is a suckie place.
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

You'll never catch me arguing that a radical atheist who has killed in the name of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is not a real atheist. Not that I can think of any such person to begin with. I've never heard an atheist apply the No True Scotsman fallacy to themselves.

As for those horrible people who govern China, they're clearly atheists, although they do what they do in the name of state socialism or just plain old self-interest rather than atheism. Hence, the No True Scotsman fallacy doesn't exactly apply unless I deny their atheism.

You all say “the desire for power and wealth will exist regardless of religion”. And that’s true. But it’s a lot easier to get people to go along with terrible things if you tell them their soul’s at risk for it.

If an area was ours for 500 years and yours for 50 years, it should belong to us – you are merely occupiers.
If an area was yours for 500 years and ours for 50 years, it should belong to us – borders must not be changed.
If an area belonged to us 500 years ago but never since then, it should belong to us – it is the cradle of our nation.
If a majority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must enjoy the right of self-determination.
If a minority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must be protected against your oppression.
All of the above rules apply to us, but not to you.

Atheism has proliferated apostasy from the truth of religion. This alone makes it a negative effect on society, and more importantly it is deadly to heavenly society. Atheism destroys the joy of souls.
