    religion, even ancient religions like that of the Greeks that are called mythology - tells stories about good and evil and human origins. many evils happen in the world that have nothing to do - on the surface - with any religion. but via religions, people have a source of understanding. potentially.

    one can actually say that no religion has ever done evil - since a religion is not the god that is worshipped - or gods - nor the people who interpret the religion.

    people who interpret religions HAVE been capable of doing Evil.

    for example, the Roman Empire for the centuries that it raped and pillaged and dominated BEFORE Islam ever came to be. One definition could be that Islam would NEVER have come to be - had not the Roman Empire been heading for the Arabian regions determined to convert everyone under pain of death to Roman Catholicism.

    How does the Roman Empire make any LESS sense than the brutal insanity of Islamofascism? It's just another form of religious fascism, and an OLDER form. Catholicism?

    The so-called Prince of Peace certainly didn't force anyone to practice his philosophy at swordpoint.

    People can be hypocrites without religion, or with it. (Report) Reply

    Jihad is just another reason for men to kill men. There is no god involved. When will people learn that religion is the real evil in this world? (Report) Reply

For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
