Question Bye Bye Organized Religion

I wonder what the world would be like if the entire planet did away with organized religion. People would only be allowed to pray and worship at home, no religious based organizations were allowed. No churches, no synagogues, no mosques, no public religious halls, monuments anywhere. We all just worshiped in our homes, when we wanted and how we wanted. Oh and preaching in public banned as well.

I wonder what our world would be like then?....

I think it would be better. If you saw Bill Maher's documentary, you would agree. The percentage of people following the religion has gone down by double in the past 10 years. Personally, I am not a fan of all the stories and such, call me agnostic. If you can prove it, I will follow.

Fattony.. although I'm not a huge fan of Bill Majher, I just watched that doc about an our ago and is what prompted this thread. It would be great if we could be nice to one another without religion being such an obstacle. Sheeps!

To stop Christians spreading the gospel you're quite frankly have to kill all Christians with any sort of integrity and loyalty to Christs teachings. our Last command was to spread the gospel and that is what we do.

Reedeemed, interesting... How do you know what you believe to be the truth? This arrogance(no offense) is and has been the root of some pretty serious evil in all religions. Please answer this thread not by your account/feeling but in the way I asked. What proof do you or any have for that matter? What would happen if you could only worship in your home? For me, I'm sick of the judgemental "almighty" ones in every religion, causing so much harm in the world since man starting walking up right. If what I see and have experienced coming from the religious ones is goodness, they certainly will never inherit this earth or virgins.

So again, how do you know what you've be taught and have read to be the truth? Where you there?

I do believe in GOD BUT I don't believe in people. There in lies the problem. PEOPLE have ruined religion. Used their GOD for money, sex, land and power, then and now.

Wasn't Hitler a Protestant? Can't remember. Have you every died? I have, twice in one year. There is something after, not sure what it is though.

Religion is a dying game.
How many people have died in the name of religion - millions.

Was it worth it ?

Religion - Held mankind back for centuries. Ridiculed the greatest discoverers long past. It's certainly dieing, a dieing business. I can't say I believe in a god, I believe in mankind whether in a bad way or a positive way. I see religion as a way of people turning to something for comfort rather than a benefiting way to their situation.

Like I stated in the last religion orientated thread there's not a lot I hate in life though religion is one mainly for it's false claims, lack of facts.

If people feel that religion improves the quality of their lives fair play but most religions force their scriptures/beliefs down your throat which I haven't got time for anymore.

Like I said, people will turn to religion in times where maybe something terrible has happened, maybe to their families, themselves etc and to me turning to something so meaningless on the turn of a whim is somewhat silly. I'm sure many people will have comfort in that and if that's what they like then fairplay to them.

It sounds pretty good to me.

Nobody standing over you telling you what and how to believe. nobody telling you that this or that is a sin.

To be honest, I lost respect for organized religion a long time ago.

LOL. This made me laugh because most of these so-called Christians don't understand the message that Christ was. TalkJesus.com is a prime example of this and we have a discussion about this on our forums.

So to have to:

That is not characteristic of Jesus Christ at all and furthermore Jesus didn't order the killing of Muslims, radical Christian leaders did. Jesus didn't kill but many Christians do. How naive can we possibly be to think that Christianity has anything to do with the message given by Jesus Christ.... Not to mention, there is no real evidence or proof that Jesus Christ was ever even here. My oh my how the blind lead the blind. Not to mention, Paul created Christianity not Jesus and Paul never met Jesus. Geesh, I think in order to call oneself a Christian one should understand their history and the Crusades along with all the other havoc that radical religions reaped and the state of our world today is living proof of it.

I have to agree with the original poster. Get rid of these silly religions. They've divided and conquered man for long enough. The problem is mankind seeks his answers in other men so we have the blind leading the blind. I was talking to someone last night who said, "I'm not in control of anything"... Until we realize the exact opposite, we'll keep spiraling downward and keep fighting and keep creating more religions that take the burden of responsibility of the Genius humankind and place it on the shoulders of mythology.

I'm sorry Redeemed Warrior but Jesus was a way shower not a warrior. Jesus also did not require or request his followers to be warriors. Isn't it funny that the word Christianity and War are so often found mingling with each other.

Peace not war. Peace!

ADDED: I do not want to make broad, sweeping generalizations about ANY religion and I also realize there are good folks in all religions including Christianity. It's just too bad humanity roams the earth with a blindfold with their arms outstretched to the shoulder of the person they are following.
