Evils in the world ....


They have been and will be the source of all world conflict

Hmmmm I don’t know. 🤔 I can think of many wars over religion, I can’t think of one where atheism was a factor. Not that I’m an atheist.
[@1189891,Ceinwyn] once again ... two sides to those conflicts ... most were disputes that gravitated to battles along ethnic and later religious lines.

The absence of religion would not have eliminated a single one of those conflicts.

And religion did not ignite a single one of those conflicts.

They were in the category of ethnic wars ... and land wars.

Italians and Spain tend Catholic ... British tend to be anti-Catholic ... but land wars they were.

[@6757,questionWeaver] Well by that reasoning Hitler being an atheist had nothing to do with him invading Poland.
[@1189891,Ceinwyn] good point and quite true ... that was simply a land grab by a man without a moral compass.

The absence of a moral compass has led many people and leaders to bad decisions.

Atheism, by its definition, refutes the moral compass of all religions

Thus, those self-identifying as atheist are more likely to not consider grace, charity, joy, forgiveness, hope and love ... in decisions regarding use of force.

Thus, atheism does not make them dangerous ... but it does warn ALL OTHERS that they could be a danger.

Atheism is a source of conflicts, but religion isn't? There have never been any holy wars?
[@6602,helenS] there are two sides to every conflict ... in a war of religion ... there is one side that believes and one side that does not

The extermination of the Jews, by Germany, was an extension of German denial that there was a more powerful God than them, more powerful than their science, more rightful than their objectives.

How do you tie religion and terrorism into the , “…source of all world conflict.” equation?

Curious 🧐

Both religion and terrorism are media explanations for conflict.

Reality is neither are a true source of conflict.

The impression that religion and terrorists are at the root of conflict, is exploited by those with personal objectives.

Globalism has been the source of war for 2,000 years ... it is not a new concept ... just a new title.

Environmentalism, anti-religion have replaced Isolationism and religion as the way countries respond to threats ... it is the new "attack mode".

Science has replaced the Goebels proproganda method ... but is the same thing.

Together, they support the human effort to conquer masses.

Religion has not started wars in a long time.

Conquest starts wars

Conquest by aristocrats

They just exploit religion and terrorism, to conceal their true objectives ... and none are Godly.

[@6757,questionWeaver] I’d have to digest your answer further before completely absorbing your viewpoint. But, I’d certainly cite this as a perfect example of how slightly differing opinions can and should be expressed on SW.

I appreciate you taking the time. Ty.
