Answer for question 4278.

What is your opinion of religion? Is the world a better or worse place because of it?
I do think that organized religion is a force for evil, not good. Read your history. Spirituality, wanting to believe in something greater than yourself, that's a different thing. The 'my god is the only/best/ god, and I will kill, persecute/ you if you don't agree...that's just wrong and religion has caused more suffering than anything else I can think of. To animals and the planet, as well as to humans. The things we do to one another in the name of our particular god are horrendous and disgusting, if you ask me. Even if you don't. You don't need a god to do the right things in life. You just need to think about consequences for yourself and others. Fear of punishment or reward in some afterlife just takes away your responsibility for you actions here and now. Yeah, not big on organized religion. Sorry if that offends you, but I am entitled to my opinion, just like you are.
