    Is there anyone on here that fits the description of the thread title? What are people’s views of religion etc. How important to the world and society has religion been. Not sure we have a religious thread on here.

    As bad as believing in ghosts.

    They’ll never be world peace whilst religion exists. Most religion is backwards and outdated. So no to that.

    A higher power? What do you mean by that?

    Me, he means me!

    As for religion, I've never had any belief in it whatsoever. I would also add that in the past I've been able to respect those who do believe in religion and live their lives by it. Unfortunately as religion becomes more and more outdated I'm finding that more and more difficult to do. I genuinely believe that we would be in a better place if it didn't exist

    I think that religion has had both a positive and negative effect on society. Looking at History though, its mostly negative based on how many 10s of millions have been butchered in the name of religion. and it still continues to this day!
    We have had enough evidence for years to completely dispel monothaic religion. People can obviously believe what they want but the arguments offered by Christians etc are laughable and embarrassing at best

    Something after death. A power that we have no control over. I will give my views on it for what it’s worth when I have more time. I always find religion a very interesting subject and my visit to Rome at the weekend fed my interest massively.

    I'm agnostic.

    Essentially, how the **** are we supposed to know?

    If it’s something after death then yes as I’ve seen a ghost.

    Nobody knows so in theory everyone is "agnostic" - I am an atheist because nothing has come close to meeting the burden of proof to suggest there is a god.

    I'm not religious or spiritual but I do find it funny how people are so closed-minded, you can see it already in this thread and the ghosts one. It's almost like Atheism is its own religion and anyone religious is stupid. I kind of agree being religious in this day and age is daft but if you're born into it then it's less so.

    Humans like to think we're more intelligent than we are...I don't think there's a god but I'm not arrogant enough to say that it's all bullshit either.
