Humans will always find reasons to kill eachother. Religon just happens to be a particularly popular one.

Internet forums would be a lot quieter and more civilised, for starters. And you wouldn't get stopped in the streets by those religious nutjobs who like to call you evil at every opportunity, either. Those are the only two advantages I can see, personally. They're pretty good ones though.

I think it is impossible to have a world without religon because religon developed as a natural response for humans. We really had no idea what would happen after death, or why things happend so we created religon in response to this.

In other words religon was a natural evolutionary step.

The world would be at war constantly. People would kill/steal from each other without remorse. Relgion is a tool of great good. People would have no reason to do good things, and no reason not to do bad things.

I don't get why people fight wars over relgion. Jews and Arabs worship the same god as do Christains. There are only differences in details.

You're absolutely right of course. All those atheists running around killing and stealing from people give humans a terribly bad rep, after all. Thank god religious people never commit crimes, as someone has to set a good example!

I'm not sure what's worse -- that you took me seriously just now, or that you actually seemed to agree that atheist are a band of murderous theives. Check any chart -- theists dominate prison populations.
