I know this is a touchy subject, so let me just offer up my own feelings about religion and state for the record that I believe in "everyone's personal right to freedom of religion".
Myself, there are no gods or goblins in my life. I am a non believer, meaning that if I do not believe in a god, then I don't believe in a satan either. I consider myself a spiritual person, connected to my fellow human beings and nature. Just so that's clear. Don't bother sending replies saying I'm some devil worshipper or something...ok...cause I'm not!
I believe in me....and I believe in you.
That brings me to the main question. "What would our world look like if there were no religion?"
Why do people need religion?
Religion has started more wars than any other reason. The divides within humanity because of religion are ever raging. It seems to me that if there were no religion to divide us, humanity would actually be more....humane.
I see a world without religion as a much more loving and peaceful world.
