    Agree with "farce" but not "ban."

    By banning a belief or practice (that doesn't impose, threaten or harm another), you are buying into the kind of control that spawned religions in the first place.

    IMO

    I would not support a ban either, although I am an atheist. Banning an organization just forces it into the murky depths of the underworld, where it would be harder to eradicate.
    All we can hope for is that, over time, people will see through the deity bullshit and decide for themselves that they want nothing to do with it.
    In the meantime, no one should be allowed to stand as a political representative if he or she believes in fairies.
    Religion and politics should never be allowed to serve together.
    So, no flat earthers, no creationists and no David Icke's either.

    No
    Ban the fuckers let them go underground with the drug dealers and the people they say they help
    It's a travesty that in 2017 we are still supposed to respect cunts with archaic beliefs that have no place in a scientific world
    Cunts / weak people the lot of them

    “Religion can never reform mankind because religion is slavery. It is far better to be free, to leave the forts and barricades of fear, to stand erect and face the future with a smile. It is far better to give yourself sometimes to negligence, to drift with wave and tide, with the blind force of the world, to think and dream, to forget the chains and limitations of the breathing life, to forget purpose and object, to lounge in the picture gallery of the brain, to feel once more the clasps and kisses of the past, to bring life's morning back, to see again the forms and faces of the dead, to paint fair pictures for the coming years, to forget all Gods, their promises and threats, to feel within your veins life's joyous stream and hear the martial music, the rhythmic beating of your fearless heart.

    And then to rouse yourself to do all useful things, to reach with thought and deed the ideal in your brain, to give your fancies wing, that they, like chemist bees, may find art's nectar in the weeds of common things, to look with trained and steady eyes for facts, to find the subtle threads that join the distant with the now, to increase knowledge, to take burdens from the weak, to develop the brain, to defend the right, to make a palace for the soul. This is real religion. This is real worship.”

    ― Robert G. Ingersoll, The Works of Robert G. Ingersoll, Vol. IV

    The most painful lessons in life should ne'er be forgotten.
    I wish it wasn't the way of the world but it really is.

    True long-term happiness, future trust and sincere respect rarely follow you home from the bar and asks for compensation to be paid the following morning for services rendered the night prior.

    Otherwise man up, soldier. It's simply best to move on.

    We all come from the same genes although some of us are a but darker, bigger, smaller, look a little like monkeys or have square heads.

    But we are all the same!

    Religion is the root of all evil second only to greed.

    I wouldn't ban all religions, but restricting religions each to to their own god-boxes is a good idea.
    They could all sing and dance and pray and stuff within the sanctity of their own domains then instead of proselytizing and yahooing in the streets bothering decent folk.

    I must admit though that I have a problem with any organized religion that attempts to mix the secular with the divine.
    “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods’? John 10:34.

    I like Thai Buddhism.

    Trouble is many people in Thailand must of read the rules wrong, they seem to think that it says in the book that killing and smashing fuk out of each other is at top of the page one.

    Nor would I. Hindus have some good stuff. Keep the good stuff like the Kama Sutra and get rid of the vegetarian nonsense and I'm a convert.

    The quicker we get rid of religion will give us all more resources and time to focus on the quest for the real answers.
    I am with science all the way and a devout atheist.

    It will happen as a process of evolution but cannot be rushed.

    We should be patient and understanding for those still tangled up in its dogmatic hypocrisies and even willing to celebrate with those who choose to use their beliefs as a tool for peace and harmony.

    Some religious ones know no better. I mean the everyday folk, not the leaders.

    It is how they were raised.

    Once fear is ingrained from an early age, it is not easy to undo.

    It'll most likely take anywhere from two to our more generations before a new kind of enlightenment takes over the majority of humankind.


    All, of course: IMO.

    Buddhism's a philosophy not a religion, although many have corrupted Buddha's original teachings and have turned it into a mixture of shamanism and the deification of Gautama.

    He, on the other hand said that though there are "gods" (ie powers, forces, phenomenal events etc), that they shouldn't be worshipped or given any special attention, praise or energy, for they have enough of their own anyway, but people should instead use those "gods' " energy/power for their own benefit.

    Shortly before he died, his disciples said that they'd pray to him when he'd gone, ...his reply to that was more or less, "Don't be daft, I'll be gone, I won't hear you."

    Religion is the most effective means for organising the mass of people and mankind would still be living in subsistence conditions without it. We may live in times of mass stupidity, but this is not the 1600's, very few are burned for heresy or drowned for witchcraft these days. Religion is a brand, a collective aspiration for many... like Apple or F1.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    You cannot get rid of religion, and religion and science are more compatible and mutual beneficial than you understand.

    Religion is not the enemy of science, it is the enemy of spirituality, of free will.

    ^^ I doubt that it's the most effective means of organizing people, but it's done the job of crowd manipulation and control with some success, but not necessarily with positive results.
    Emotional blackmail is religion's main method of creating conformity.

    Now that's going out on a limb!
    Religion hinges on belief, and the luxury of belief is incompatible with science.

    There will be no mass enlightenment... already many societies are enlightened enough to grow modified crops, run whole countries on renewable resources and land spacecraft on asteroids, but that is not widespread. The future will see Religion evolve to make meaning of new the developments in biology and technology.

    Religion is part of the intersubjective... the story that gives meaning to our reality, otherwise we are all just observers and not participants of the greater whole.. as we would all like to believe we are in one way or another.
