What would life be without religion?

Considering over 90% of us believe in God or a higher power, how would the world be different without religion?

  • Um my life? I dont follow a religion although I respect all religions.

    Now if everyone didnt have a religion, nobody knew of such a thing then I'd have to say the world be much the same. People are going to find conflicts & have strong ideas weather it be religion, science, opinions, you name it there will be arguments. The arguments would just be different & people would ban together with others who have the same ideas as themselves.

  • I can remember what it was like, it was pure hell, and I wouldn't go back to not having God in my life for anything. Once I was saved, and started leaning on God, all relationships started improving, and while things haven't been all roses and sunshine, I know God is always there,and that makes it all worthwhile.

  • I actually feel like the world would be a more peaceful place without religion or at least without religious exclusivity. I think the world could be a peaceful place if people were generally more inclusive and respectful of differences. I do practice Buddhism (though most consider this a philosophy rather than religion, but depends who you ask), and would probably consider myself to be spiritual but not religious. I put more emphasis on finding inner peace and wisdom, practicing loving-kindness and compassion, and put less emphasis on dogma and other things often associated with religion. Some people believe that we have reached (or will soon reach) a time of POST-theism where theism is not rejected--it's just considered obsolete. If people can be moral for its own sake (if non-theistic morality reaches maturity), then religion will no longer be necessary and we'll evolve beyond the need for it. Interesting perspective IMO.
