    I agree with this. When we look at wars, they've been predominately between the west and the east. Of course there is a difference in government, beliefs, morals but most strikingly, religion. All wars occur because of a difference between two parties, that's the reality. Religion definitely plays into this. I wouldn't say it's the most important factor in a war though, but it definitely has to be held responsible for some wars. Look at World War II for example, one main factor behind that war was money and land, but religion played into it too. I'd consider religion as a fuel, the flame being the war and the match being greed.

    Religion is one factor. I don't think Trump and Kim Jong-Un's deteriorating rapport is due to religion though.

    ww2 wasn't about money or Hitler invading countries it was about the purposeful destruction of anyone who wasn't northwestern European.

    What facts? No one mentioned ww2 until you.

    Statement 1: most wars are caused by religion
    Statement 2: there is a war that was not caused by religion

    Now show me how statements 1 and 2 are logicallly inconsistent with each other.

    That is a statistically verifiable fact, not much to discuss.

    Religion makes people believe that there is a power more important than their own lives. A fertile ground for war.

    well considering the title says religion is the MAIN cause of war

    and WW2 was one of the most brutal wars in history not to mention the most common one

    WW2 wasn't necessarily cause by religious hatred , sooooooo putting two and two together religion isn't the main cause of wars

    I don’t think religion is the main cause, but it’s definitely high up there. A war over religion is quite uncommon.

    The fact that it was the most brutal one has nothing to do with whether religion is the main cause of wars in general. Besides, Ww2 is still only a fraction of all the deaths in war throughout human history.

    ok how about coming with other non religious based brutal wars e.g WW1, Vietnam, korean war etc

    so clearly religion isn't the MAIN cause of war
