I remember reading many years ago someone, I don't remember who said more people have been killed in the name of religion than any other reason.

I have no idea if true, but looking at history, it's possible.

I've heard that too. But governments I believe are #1, with religion coming in second.

There's some crossover when you have religious regimes and/or when you have religious groups that have their own armies.

More people have died for Marxism than for anything else. Just tally up the murders under Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc...

Beware of anything, particularly anything that ends in "ism", when it's mixed with an ultra-nationalism.

Always trouble.

I prefer a secular society any day.

War is the human condition not tempered by politics, religion, lack of religion, we are our own worst enemy, yet capable compassion , I suspect evolution is the culprit

Not so true Ron , there is much cruelty in nature, some of our closest evolutionary relatives chimpanzees are capable of severe violence, to protect things and take things, we have the capability to think and question, and still are capable of ugly actions.

"70" is not a "high IQ."

LOL. Here's what I found, and where I found it:

Yeah. And you're in that group. We've been telling you for years you need help.

We all have our different opinion regarding this matter. I can't help but think that despite the RELIGION there are a lot of bad issues hidden behind their closet. Some of which were exposed on one of the exclusive articles written at research paper writing which are pretty shocking to read.
