Are we better off without the religion of Islam existing or has it had an overall benefit in society?

Without it. All in all, there aren't any religions that have helped us, and Islam has definitely not made our world a nicer nor more peaceful place to live.

That's an extremely complicated and difficult question which also needs lots of clarification. No one could ever answer a question like that properly because of how long it's been around and its numerous effects, positive or negative.

Virtually impossible to answer because of the countless factors

You shouldn't just be asking this about Islam. At times, I ponder if the world could've been better off without Christianity. Even now, the only religion I can feel any compassion towards these days is Judaism.

The world would be better off without all religion, but certainly in modern times the world would be a better place without Islam specifically.

Muslims make 23% of people in this planet so er... We need them.

But what we don't need is terrorists.

If everyone left Islam it would obviously be a benefit to the world, well at least if you value liberalism.

This is your third thread on Islam in less than 12 hours.
That is really sad.

Nothing sad or wrong about discussing and debating about a belief system. It's good to challenge and debate ideas.

I meant the religion, not the people of the religion. We would still have all these people if Islam didn't exist.

To be honest, I think the world would be better without religion in general.
(I already know people will get very angry at this)

Obviously 'better off' is not a statement of fact but of opinion. My opinion is that we would be better off without it as long as other ideologies e.g. christianity, communism etc do not get any bigger than they are currently.

You might want to expand that list...

Isn't the Tanakh pretty much the same as the Old Testament?

Forget the question, please let me know how you will get rid of Islam in the first place?? Then talk. All I can think of is madness to even attempt it so good to you for thinking right.
