"Tribal Divisions Created by Religion Most Harmful in Global Conflict Experts Say"
It is my opinion that the troubles in the world are legion. With that being said, there are so many causes as to why we have problems in the world. I don't think I could blame religion for all of them. A good number, yes.
I think that the root of our problems in the world are based on being human. The tribalism and us vs. them mentality which sprang into existence thousands of centuries ago when humans were Paleolithic hunter/gatherers play a large part in our divisiveness which leads to problems.
Just my opinion.
I think religion is about power, getting and keeping power. Ultimately those who have power also have money and want to keep both of those, and how better to get and keep those than using religion to keep the people controlled. I'm not cynical at all.
If people would learn to compromise instead of argue. The emotional progress could advance and then trusts could be established. Instead of working against each other the world could work together to solve problems and advance as a civilization. You know they saying Wish in one hand Crap in the other and see what one comes true.
GREED, which is powered by FEAR, is a big one in tearing humanity apart. religion fuels fear, & on the other hand removes all responsibility from the individual, which is why agnostics & atheists are more compassionate - we don't have a god we can blame for atrocious behaviour towards others.
