Religion kills in Egypt
This Article from CBC news show how religion breeds violence. 19 people died because of religious violence. Now any person knows that this is only another of millions of violent tragic incidences that have occurred over 1000's of years because of religion. Man made myths and cults have changed the course of human history, many times in a negative way. The burning of the Library of Alexandria to the Crusades and the Witch Hunt, too many people have died because of religion.
My issue is not with the everyday believer, but with the extremism the doctrine of religion creates. I truly believe to abolish religion is to take a great step in world peace. Of course I understand how people can fall into believing in a higher power, I used to be religious my self. But when you take a step back, inform your self and look at most main religions as they are, you realize they make no sense. For example.. we now know the Earth is round & older then we used to think(500yrs ago).
I guess to wrap it it up I could say that I don't understand how people can ignore this and continue following a flawed ancient beliefs. I only hope that finally with all the science advancements we can as a species move beyond religion in my life time. I know its a dream, but one can only hope.
