    Define religion.
    According to the transnational company, Google, religion is "the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods" or "a particular system of faith and worship" or "a pursuit or interest followed with great devotion."Soz, couldn't give you a definition straight from my A2 RE textbook.

    hmm one way to look at it is many many lives wouldnt have been lost through religious wars and hatred and science would ave been unlikely to have been held back so much.
    This being said humans seem to have a gift for finding new ways to hate and slaughter each other so it probably wouldnt be that different same story different title kinda thing.

    Yes.If the whole world believed that waving their hands and saying latin words over their pancakes, made it turn into the body of elvis then you would think they were crazy.If you believe the same thing about bread and a priest then you are a catholic.Of course we'd be better off without that level of insanity.

    Nah: everydude would turn into an existential dude. And that's no good! Besides, religion offers billions community, friendship and teaches good values.

    You should really stop focusing on extremism. can you honestly put your hand on your heart and say that if religion didn't exist we'd all be living in peace and harmony?! because I'm almost certain that wars and suffering would still exist. People think we are killing each other over religion, I still think the basis of all evil is money. I mean ISIS are not doing what they are doing for free after all. As long as theres money and greed in this world there will be no peace

    With or without religions in the world, there will always be wars for those hungry for power, resources, wealth, etc. I believe living in a world with religions do teach us good values and appreciate things that matter us the most. Religious dualism plays in our everyday lives.
