Okay, I know this topic may start some "stuff" (substitute appropriate slang) but I often wonder about how religion seems to be the base of war. It seems that all wars have some sort of "religion" involved. Can anyone name any war that was NOT based on religion? I was talking about this with friends the other day. We joked about how God must be looking down on us and laughing is butt off. He either created religion to keep us from destroying ourselves or using it as a cruel joke to see how long it would take us before we destroyed ourselves. I know this may go against the grain of some of your beliefs so please try and control your emotions when answering. I, myself, am a catholic and am not trying to be blasphemous. I just wonder sometimes. Could we be better off without religion?
