How are you going to keep someone from believing something?

Yes, I do believe the world would be a better place without religion. No, I don't believe it should be banned.

Paganism, Buddhism, etc. are technically religions, but they have no problem with those with differing views and they do not proselytize.

Quoting MyGirlsAbbyLiz:

That's pretty much all religion


Quoting kdizzlej:

Not "banned", but I do think the world would be better without religion that is intolerant of anyone who differs in opinion.

No. I would be sad if I couldn't practice my faith. Or if I couldn't study religion.

While I can concede that religious beliefs have been a huge cause of conflicts throughout history and the world,  my hunch is that humans are somewhat conflict and differences driven.  So if it weren't religion causing wars, it'd be something else.  After all, there have been many awful wars/genocides/violence based on different ethnicities or races that had nothing to do with religion per se.  I feel that if religion didn't exist, humans would still find reasons to be violent towards one another.  To make it work, you'd have to rid the world also of different cultures, sexualities, economic levels, etc.  

Ridding the world of religion is not the answer.  Fostering religious tolerance is.

I don't understand this point of view. I mean I understand why people have issues with various gods and organized religion; what is so wrong with spirituality and belief that we are but a small part of a large universe? Do you think Buddhism is terrible? Daoism? Why?
