Well, another religious thread, yes, but a slightly different one... There are people out there, many of whom I know personally, that think of religion as a cancer that must be eliminated in order for mankind to survive and prosper. They believe that it is meaningless, and a curse on mankind. "All it does is cause wars, and suffering, and irrationality!!!"
On the other hand, there are, well, the religious people themselves, that naturally disagree with this to say the least. Then, there are the potentially infinite viewpoints possible in between.
What does AF think? Does religion play a role, should it be outlawed, what exactly is it's value and purpose? I have a viewpoint, of course, but I won't reveal it just yet, I'll just say that I am not atheist, but am not affiliated with any organized religion.
Is religion really a "cancer", or a "curse"? (try to refrain from petty insults, we're mature people here, right? Try to actually back up your opinion with something. Keep it a clean, rational debate.)
