Religion is the cause of many wars, killings, and untold suffering to the people of the world as recorded in history. Therefore religion is NOT exempt from regular scrutiny.

Religions must be examined and reprimanded on a regular basis. ###

We can live without religion. If religion continue to harm makind & be destructive we should consider banning such religions. An established religion bans NEW off shoot religions by calling them CULTS.

We cannot live without water & oxygen. So let us concentrate our energy & time to conserve & maintain clean water & air for our survival.

We will survive WITHOUT religions.Religion is HIGHLY divisive.

Religion is NOT about the TRUTH, but about UNSUBSTANTIATED claims, beliefs, rituals & even lies.

Faith is belief without evidence. And this leads to lies. All Prophets claimed God spoke to them directly OR indirectly. BUT God has NEVER acknowledged them. Religion is NOT the intermediary or sole Agent of God.

God does NOT belong to any religion. If God belongs to a religion then God is NOT Almighty

Religion seems to be a political, social & military organization. Religions sap alot of our energy, money and time which can be used for the good of humankind. Why spend so much money of building EXPENSIVE HUGE BEAUTIFUL churches mosques temples etc. Did God ask them to do these?

If you believe in God you can pray to HIM or HER directly whenever you are READY, in a convenient place, in any direction, in any language. If God ONLY understand one language then HE or SHE is NOT Almighty and OMNISCENT and IMMANENT.

Religions want POWER. There was the Christian Empire & Islamic Empire. There is a CLASH of CIVILIZATION. Islam and Christianity are ETERNAL ENEMIES even since the birth of Islam.

The atrocities committed by religions in the name of God is really appalling & unthinkable.
