1 less reason for discrimination, for war, for "us vs. them" scenarios. One less reason to ignore science.

"Any absolutist attitude is always a religious attitude, and in whatever respect a man becomes absolute, there you see his religion." - Carl Jung.

Based on this quote the world would certainly be a better place, a better place for animals and plants.

The most ridiculous ones are based on religions, like gays should be stoned...

Side: Yes
1 point

Well, if religions were based off of mens thoughts, then that means men thought homosexuality was wrong BEFORE they "found god"

Now, thats just my if, but seeing as how most people seem to agree that religion is just a bunch of mens stories put together.....

"If God doesn't exist then everything is permitted." -Fyodor Dostoevsky

Based on that quote everything would be permitted that means stealing, killing, lying, cheating, rape, etc is alright. We know for a fact everything isn't permitted because we all know what's right and wrong. Therefore the world wouldn't be a better place. It would be in much of a worse state.

Side: No

The only reason you dont kill people is because God tells you not to? How fucked up are you...

Side: Yes
2 points

Agreed. I dont kill because i would cry over the suffering of my victim if i did that. I hate to see people suffer. I would only make an exception to prevent someone from murdering or torturing me or to protect someone else.

Side: Yes

Not really. Secular countries like Sweden and Finland are doing pretty well (better than the US...). Also, one can have morals without a religion; for example, may people take beliefs from Confucianism, which isn't a religion, but a philosophy.

Side: Yes
2 points

Come on lil bro. Obviously God is a good reason not to do those things, but i choose not to rape or murder because I would be heartbroken over the suffering from said actions. I want to heal, not hurt just because i want to, god's just the icing on the cake. :)

Side: Yes

That's why I put that quote out there because "If God didn't exist then everything would be permitted" and nobody would stop it.

Side: No
