belief in supernatural

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by A human being (United Kingdom), Sep 8, 2006 at 08:00

i find it very scary that belief in the supernatural or religion under any name can cause such blind hatred toward fellow human beings. Interpreting the Koran, or the Bible or the Torah has NOT brought religious leaders closer to peace, love and harmony. Belief in religion has succesfully created division, war, intollerance and hatred. If we all threw away our holy books and picked up a good novel we may perhaps learn that our world is for sharing harmoniously. Let me grow up my children in that world.
