Accept that some humans are just evil, regardless of their religion or lack thereof

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Carrie (United States), Sep 24, 2004 at 22:23

Because we humans cannot learn to accept one another, we are doomed to become extinct like the dinosaurs. The religions are not evil (although it would probably be easier to believe that) - religious beliefs are just supposed to help humans (naturally stupid creatures) learn to live with one another and accept the trials of life. Obviously, humans are too evil to live with one another, as we have been killing one another for ages.

There are evil people in every religion, as well as evil atheists and agnostics. Evil people can turn even the most peaceful ideas into reasons for hating and not accepting others. There is right, and there is wrong; it seems that many humans don't understand that.

It is time that we all accept this. The sooner we do so, the sooner we will feel relief. The sooner we accept this, the sooner we can choose to live our own lives in the best way we can, being tolerant of others, until we become extinct and leave the planet to the few remaining species we have not destroyed.
