- I would just like to point out before you read this myTake, is that this is not discriminating any particular religion. I'm not asking you to quit your religion or fight over this. This is my own opinion.
Growing up I was forced into Christianity. I had to go to church every Sunday, read the Bible, and take religion class in school. I wasn't even given the chance to actually believe in this religion. I was forced into it.
After school I realised that I am a human. We are all humans. There is nothing more greater than humans. I don't believe in worshipping something other than humans. Morality is doing what is right regardless of what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told regardless of what is right.
Imagine a world without religion. where humans depend on humanity and mankind. imagine if humans didn't look up to one (or multiple) god who was greatest. imagine if all humans were equal, and looked at each other as gods, survivors, humans.
to me, human rights go hand in hand with atheism. atheists cannot hold some insane religious tradition responsible for their horrible deeds against mankind. we are fully responsible for everything we do. until this does not apply to all religions on a worldwide basis i feel that religion is indeed the root of all evil.
this is something i came across on the internet and in my opinion this here is a great example of evil: "there are almost 5,000 gods being worshipped by humanity. but don't worry, only yours is right".
historical leaders didn't kill people for money, they killed them because of their religion. i don't want to offend anybody by giving examples but there are plenty of them throughout history and still plenty of them going on today. over one hundred million people died at the hands of terrorist attacks from all religions. terrorism is the symptom. religion is the disease.
maybe we have created this evil. who created the government? we did. who created religion? we did. who created money and have it value? we did. maybe it's time we took some responsibility and acted like humans.
