If religion brings enlightenment, why do the faithful reject evidence in favor of belief in a book written thousands of years ago?
If religion brings peace, why have so many wars through out history been over religious differences? Not just between different religions either. Different sects of Christianity and Islam fight each other all the time.
If religion brings morality, why are so many people murdered in the name of god every year?
If religion brings acceptance, why are those who disagree rejected?
i honestly don't get it. please help me understand!
Religion does not bring peace. That being said, God should not be conflated with religion.
