Religion is a myth.

I just noticed something interesting. I'm in the library and I took note of the fact that the books concerning the assessment of religion are grouped with the books assessing mythology.

Opinions? Thoughts?

It's far too rainy and cold for me to be outside today. I don't like it. :(

Damnit. Anyway, the bottom line was... Religion is a myth that is made by men to promote peace or incite insanity.

I think to deny religion in many cultures, including ancient times, is to shut the door on not only our world's history but cultural diversity and beginnings.

Well, I tend to lean in agreement.

Yes we discussed this in a mythology class.

I think it's ridiculous from both sides...


Both are trying to prove the other one is wrong and neither of them have evidence beyond what they feel.

How is classifying something as a myth denying it? Isn't it true that some beliefs stem from mythological happenings? How would classifying something as a myth entirely dismiss it versus categorizing it differently?
