In other words, society suffers in many ways because of people with dogmatic thoughts and people who do not act with their mind and accept without question?
Pretty much. Most problems are ignorance and dogmatic thoughts and there is really no way to solve it which is the worst part.
Are you saying that religions are a problem then?
the probability of a religion been a problem is 99% from what i have seen. Religion is not a problem when people truly keep it to themselves are is a really small religion that has been stepped on by others. But the likeliness of people keeping it to themselves is very low and keeping a religion small is hard unless if some other religion or culture of people are trying to wipe it out by killing the people who fallow it which is of course a bad thing.And religion is not based off any factual evidence so it becomes a much easier target for emotional responses. So honestly i do think they are.
It is normal for religion to spread, in fact it would be strange not to spread it. People invite each other out because they think it is the right way. If a religion orders you to investigate and question your thinking, we cannot say that it is harmful. such a religion that the first request is to read.
It been natural to spread is because of cult mentally. which is a bad thing.
people invite each other to believe what they believe because of there emotion they are correct no matter what. Aka dogmatic people
They will never think oh wait what if mine is wrong. Or what if i am forcing these views or what if it's just best to leave them be.
( They will never think oh wait what if mine is wrong. Or what if i am forcing these views or what if it's just best to leave them be.) No, I think there are many people who question their religion, when they cannot find an answer or when they are not satisfied, they abandon their religion, leave it to the flow without questioning. Or they reach the answers and walk more confidently. But as a result of these questions, my faith in my religion only increased.
listen if it wasn't true that people force there religion on to people half the world wouldn't be christian. But it is thanks to the Christians killing off and destroying other religions culture from there own homes. Simple as that
"pagans and heathens" didn't just all simply convert to Christianity. They were force into by dogmatic views
Not really, actually, pagans carried their plural beliefs to Christianity, so there is a trinity belief. 1 + 1 + 1 = 1 is not logical. Christianity was not in its original form.
huh? Are you trying to say the Christians didn't wipe out pagans? When hell even the word Pagan was a Slurr word as insult to them that wasn't even there religion that's just what they would call people deemed satanic to them.
And plural has nothing to do with that... Trinity was a thing since jesus pretty much.
Jesus did not proclaim himself a god, people deified him just as they did Buddha. This is considered idolatry. Also, I do not know what Christians did to pagans and I do not defend them.
That's very true about jesus but the holy trinity was caused because of people's beliefs in the new testament not really anything to do with pagans. Just Christians adopting news views as any religion which also caused many deaths.
Since it just caused wars between those who thought that and people who don't. And again no factual evidence just there own dogmatic views.
I know that trinity has nothing to do with idolatry, as a result, I have concluded that religion is basically opposed to war and violence alone is causing this. All religions do not resort to violence for the same reason. What factual proof are you looking for if you mean religion by. I will understand if you are bored or don't want to stretch. Because the subject seems to be long
Welp every religion i have researched starts war and violence due to different beliefs between other religions or even there own. Apart from the small ones that were targeted by the bigger religions and self contained ones. And you haven't really said anything that proved the contrary. So you can believe this not true but i would need a valid point to why this is wrong with facts behind it. Otherwise it's just another belief than fact based thinking.
Which in reality is how all wars start due to different opinions and beliefs but religion is just another reason to fight.
I guess it could do a south park episode so even if we got rid of religion. people would turn atheism into a similar thing, were you have evolutionists vs mentalists or something daft.
Irreligion does not eliminate social problems or wars, on the contrary, it increases because people are left with their own conscience. Are you asking the reasons behind the religion with a large audience or religions with a small audience fighting each other? Have a got it right?
Can you ask the question a little more clearly?
Just saying religion is another reason to fight you only need to look at 1secs of history to know. And people without religion would have 1 less reason to fight. It wouldn't increase reasons to fight. Just people would focus these fights on factual bases. Even the worse dictators such a Mao couldn't actually be argued that factually he was making the economy better was it wrong 100% morally, But factually it had standing. And yes i don't agree with Mao just to be clear, but i would much prefer bad shit happens because of factual evidence than just "Your a blasphemer to our god" you must die.
It also wouldn't decrease the fights either i am just simply saying i prefer evil to be cause by something that can be proven.
I guess you have no religion. You don't find it realistic to fight for or defend something that has no proof. There is religion because people need to know that they have a different life from this world and that what they do here will be paid off. Nothing in the world is aimless. Even the meeting of two ants. Man cannot be stray. War is not true. If you are persecuted just because you have a belief, you have the right to defend yourself. If you insult and provoke people's saints, it is normal not to be welcomed. Do you expect them to congratulate you. I mean, of course, not to kill. At least you are excluded, which is quite normal.
Yeah that's why Christians used there religion to wipe out many other's because other's were not "Welcome". Just like many religions did. Killing innocent people just because there were not "Welcome" and all because of something they couldn't even prove and self belief that could of be wrong. It wasn't the Christians there were defending them self's from other religions it was others doing that and they got mass murdered for it and destroyed culture. aka why dogmatic views are bad. simple as. Especially ones going off beliefs and not facts.
That's the problem though your saying "i mean of course not kill" But that's exactly what they did. Maybe not what you would do personally. But it's legit what many did.
And yep i do find it meaningless to commit awful crimes to people just because they believe in a different god or none at all. Super meaningless and big religions are know to do that.
There are 2 things you need to understand. 1. it's absurd that Christians or other religions kill people just because they don't belong to the same religion.2. I am not defending Christians or what they do, I am a Muslim, and what I say is only the right to defend, which is common. Everyone believes what they want, whether we like it or not, people have their own truth. I'm saying it because the conversations are in the loop.
It's not ridiculous at all one look into history you can see that's exactly what Christianity did smh. and yes it is going around in circles if you don't even know common history of how religions do wipe out others just for thinking other ways 100%.
even Christians killed each other just for been protestant or catholic smh. Which cause massive amounts of deaths and problems just cause they believe in 2 different things.
And Muslims are just as bad... sighs
I don't have to convince you of anything , you can believe whatever you want, you're free.
I don't believe i know by facts and history. And you should learn more about it probably it will help you understand how religion kills off other's religions and non-belivers.
think you need to look at it from a broader perspective. thanks.
If that means ignoring facts and history no thanks.
guess the concept of republic also changes according to the region. The republic is a good thing, of course, it depends on how the government understands this. The wrong attitude of the government is also misleading the people.
There's a difference between a republic - which is a representative democracy and is what the US is - and Republicans which is just a name given to people of a certain set of common beliefs which is no different than Democrats. People who believe in liberal policies and ethics tend to vote Democratic. People who believe in conservative policies then tend to vote Republican.

Very true , thanks for your opinion.
You are right..
Can you explain a little more?
we're talking objective morality vs subjective morality. Either some things are right and some things are wrong, or right and wrong are relative terms. The latter is often referred to as 'nihilism' So traditionally we all understood that some things are right and some are wrong. Nowadays, we have no values, so people will justify things that are wrong and say "oh well what's right and wrong, this is right for me so im saying it's right" (even if it is objectively wrong)
Yess , i got it. thanks.
what kind of indifference?
Bubbles of media and info we consume. People could go their whole lives without hearing the other side of any argument.
Lots of people are aware of everything, just behaving as they do, and in the media, feeds on people and harms them.
The Dunning Kruger Effect: when you think you know everything, but know nothing.“Ignorance begets confidence rather than knowledge.” Charles Darwin.
Even if they knowing, just knowing is not enough. People can know many rules and their consequences, but that doesn't stop them from doing wrong. Knowing the general lines of a problem is good for determining the problem, but it is necessary to go into the details of the subject for a solution. What you have said is very comprehensive.
Why women? Not man.
