Do you think world peace will ever be achieved in our life times?

Or will religion, power and greed always get in the way of such a thing? In my own personal opinion, sadly not, religion for me is the no.1 factor that stops it from happening, our differing views on how society and the world should be run.

No. Humans will always find something to fight about.

No I don't... I wish we could but no matter how many good people there are there's always bad people who want power more than world peace.

Yes for sure. Do you think that is because of money?

I think its more of a pride thing. And everyone wants to be the best. So ya selfishness and pride that's what I would say.

Yeah so this is more about patriotism?

I'm saying no matter what we do there is always temptation. For exampel- if you look back in time you can see that lots of times death and even war started because of someone being tempted and unfaithful to their spouse. You can get peace through the countries but if it doesn't last in town or city's how will it last in huge countries.

Me personally, no. And I am still young. The thing is some idiots can't accept the fact that we are all under the same sky and sun and moon. They think because of religion and greed we all live on different planets or something. It really pisses me off.

it might be possible, but we need to put aside our differences. In the mean time we can only hope for the better

Take away religion, power, and greed and you still wouldn't have world peace.

Why do you say that? Interested to know.

I just believe that the problem isn't the issues humans fight over. I believe is because one way or another, humans will find reasons to fight.

No, humans fight because that's what we do. Someone wants to tell us what to do so we have to kick his a**. However, if you believe in such things, should there was an ET contact we might unite to face it.

I do not expect peace to break out anytime in my lifetime. There are more challenges to peace than to hunger or poverty. I see religion as a help, not a hindrance; when people are motivated by a religion of peace, they try to find solutions to problems that are peaceable. When they are motivated by atheism (like USSR, Communist China, North Korea), we have historically gotten military buildups and internal repression. Atheist societies allow for genocide and internal repression as well as starvation of their own people (see China and North Korea). I suspect atheism more than religion.

This is too big a thing to want. Can we just focus on the homeless issue on the streets of Vancouver? Something needs to be done about that.

I agree it isn't going to happen. What I find interesting is that the right-wing Bible-thumpers that pop up all over this site are steering clear of this question.

i believe it will. it may be a long, long time.But we have come a long,long,long ways. back in the early 1900's who would have thought black and whites would be able to live together and go to the same schools. there are still racists and people that are too stubborn to change theie views but their childrens childrens childrens children. may be the ones to break the mold. who's to say. really. but i think it can happen. and it is possible

No, I don't think so .If you have two religions in your land, the two will cut each other's throats; but if you have thirty religions, they dwell in peace!
