Some people argue that if there were no religion, the world would be a better place. Because, according to them, no war would be waged in the name of God.
I ask then if supposedly the notion of God were erased from human memory and civilisation, would no blood really be spilled on Earth? Not the least! Human will still find other excuses to spill blood: racial superiority, economical elitism, entitled right to a certain territory or resource, group self defense and so forth.
Greedy humans love to sabotage. When confronted with religion, they take verses from the scripture that befit their mindset and abandon those that do not. The true spirit of the religion itself is overlooked. That is how men come to sabotage religion.
