What I mean is that since there was and is so many wars and hatred based on religious convictions,
do we really need religious institutions.
This is another misconception and untrue claim, that was discussed extensivly here Tichan. I'm not going to go over it again like we just did in the battle forum, but you can find it if you look, in this forum. If I find the thread, I;ll bump it to the top.
Of all the major wars and conflicts in history to before Christ, the causes of only a very few were religious in nature or casued by religions. Statistics were given that even estimated even the Crusades. and they pailed in comparison to WW2 and WW1. Neither were religious wars, and in no case in history was the United States ever in any religious wars.
You can not blame religions on wars, just like you can not blame the other subject we discussed on Religions. It is statistically not true.
Found it! This was from one of the Imaginary God proof 6 posts, on about page 12 of this forum index. click on the link, sorry to highlight is hard to read. It gives the death tolls and casued of each war. Also listed are genesides and famons.
