What do you think this world would be like if religion no longer existed?

Report as

Better, purely because there'd be no people using religion to get out of things.

Dammit I promised myself I'd stay out of religious debates, they're nothing but trouble lol.

Exactly, religion is a cover up for most people involved.

The world will be crasy, if there is no belief in this world, the crime rate will rise.

There'd be a lot less terrorism, fewer wars, and fewer stupid laws. However, a lot of sociopaths that currently live in fear of divine retribution would probably begin to engage in criminal behavior. All things considered, the world would be a better place.

Have you ever heard of Gods law which most laws are based on? Like thou shall not murder, steal, covet etc.

People that are not religious or believe in god also know right from wrong. I don't need anyone to tell me that it is better to be good than bad! I do what I do because it is the right thing to do, not because some book or even a law, tells me that I have to.

Athiests follow the laws of the countries they live in.

Just because you don't believe in God does not mean that he didn't create you and your thoughts of right from wrong. He still loves you but it is your choice to not love Him back.
Report as
Those laws were based mainly on Gods commandments.

Total chaos. We would not know to do good unless we knew about God.
We would kill each other freely.
We'd steal what others worked for.
There would be more hate.
We learned LOVE from Gods word.
The 10 commanments or the law of the land is all that keeps our land running with some kind of order.
Look at other countries like Iran-
Egypt-Africa.... They have no religion & it is complete chaos & war.

This is a lie ..I do not follow your god and I know how to be a nice person. I know that it's not right to kill. I know that I shouldn't take what's not mine. I know that hate is corrosive. So all the people that have never even HEARD of your god don't know about love or kindness? They are all just a bunch of animals scavenging for scraps on the ground? This kind of thought process is one of the reasons that so many people are turning away from organized religion these days!
Report as
Turning from organized religion is one thing but turning away from God is another.

betty's claims that people that aren't religious aren't civilized is untrue. There are people who live in remote areas and have never even heard of christianity or god that live peaceful lives, value each other, show compassion. Her implication that only christian people are capable of having morality is just an outright lie. And how many christians are liars, thieves, adulterers, pedophiles? Being christian doesn't give you an automatic dose of decency and not accepting jesus as your saviour doesn't automatically make you a vile person.

OK. See, Im a true Atheist. There was no "God" helping me make my decisions. My problems are and were my own. But, Im in the Army, serving my country, and making sure that people like you have the freedom to choose to be religious or not. Things might be bad, for a time, if there was no religion. But remember the Supreme Court ruling of seperation of Church and State. Also, and be honest here, which is truly better: a world where people are kind and honorable because they want to be and truly are that way, or a world where people are only kind or honorable because they are afraid of what happens if they dont?

Less violence and bloodshed! One less "monster" to threaten our children with. More thought and less indoctrination.
