Let's remove all kinds of religion, but to unite the world

due to different types of religions practicing in various countries of the world, the world cannot go together. Music, arts , education, science etc are the discipline where all the people of the world have common goal. but one big thing that pull us back is religion

Government is doing such a bang up job since they separated God from America's public.

Let's see, we have record numbers of people on food stamps, welfare, record numbers of children in broken homes with no fathers or mothers, kids being raised by case workers, 20 trillion in debt, etc. etc.

Government has no clue how to get people to work hard and live responsible lives. THAT'S GOD'S JOB!

Moral values is what lift's a nation's success. Without God, a nation's culture goes to the gutter as we are seeing in America.

Religion is not some separate entity that you can isolate and cut out. Religion IS humanity. The problem is how we have interpreted it. We think religion is either just Jesus or Allah and from some book. What you don't realize is that religion is not even a word that exists. No religion in history ever called itself a "religion". Religion is just a word used to encapsulate and categorize a common sharing of beliefs, way of life, or people. If you really think about it, everything is a religion. Economics is a religion. Science is a religion. Hedonism and consumerism are all religions. What systems are in place is a religion. Whatever laws you have in your society, THAT IS A RELIGION. You all worship something. It doesn't have to be a god or the God. If you idolize, worship, or believe in anything, that is your religion. So to say let's get rid of religion, that's like saying, let's get rid of all life on this planet and then we'll finally have peace.

Music, arts, education, and science can all be considered religions.

According to Merriam-Webster, a religion can be a "cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith".

A devoted musician, artist, student, teacher, scientist.... They would have to be practicing some form of religion.

These things you speak of are not the common goal. These might be common goals among pagans, but pagans place their faith in created things. Paganism is the worship of creation as god.

Not by any sane person. I have and often do argue that atheism is a religion, so it's not as if I'm biased against you here. It's just that you're wrong.

As much as I'd be happy enough to see it happen, doing it artificially would never work, and frankly, is fascist.

Imagine there's no heaven

It's easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there's no countries

It isn't hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people living life in peace, you

You may say I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one

I hope some day you'll join us

And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need…

Religion unites the world already, idiot. If there is no religion then there are no morals then laws are disobeyed, then it is just chaos.
