Better off without religion? When you take a look at the all the death and suffering caused by 'religion', such as the crusades, the inquisition, the holy wars, to name a few, it begs the question, would the world be better off without religion? Now I know there is no way to remove religion from society (atleast not in the near future), but I guess the question is, has it done more harm than good? So many of our conflicts today and past have been caused by the belief in different religions, and so much of our efforts and resources have gone into them, would the world be a different(better?) place today if religion did not exist? Thoughts anyone?
