    It will be the only way. What has religion done for us? It has divided us, it has retarded our society, it has taught us to be OK with not understanding the world, for centuries it burnt our best minds at the stake and to this day it stands in the way of every advancement in science and moral progress in the world.

    Religion must be done away with, otherwise we will always have a foot stuck in the dark ages. And humanity will never be our #1 priority.

    I don't think so. Organized religion may be wrong in some aspects, such as the Catholic church forbidding Galileo to say the Earth revolves around the Sun instead of vice versa, but that only shows how immature both humanity and the religion was at that point in time.

    I feel that both religion and humanity can progress together. But it will take time, like it does in all other things.

    I wish to agree with you in the way we see organized religions are doing. Each during their inceptions are doing everything what you see could be ideal for shepherds or pastors in making people close to each other in faith but when they become organized, they became dogmatic. Most have obviously become business oriented too.

    Most definitely. The only way we can further evolve is to start living for each other and to make the (REAL) world we're living in a better place for all. And not putting all of our energy and beliefs on some fantasy after we are dead. And to love one another as a person and not there belief or lack there of. But, the hard thing is most people aren't strong enough to function without believing in some form of a deity. They cant take responsibility for their own actions.

    Yes it must...why you may ask?

    simply because it's organized by man, using, sad to say,

    our creators word that was written in the scriptures to magnify their wants...money, and recognition from the public.

    Look else where, search for the truth, study if you are a Christian, the Bible if the religion sticks close to and do its works and its application in their lives go for it.

    I think I would rather express it as:

    Must humanity progress for organized religion to appear. The first - humanity - has options. The second - religion - has only humanity exercising its options.

    Right, like humanity hasn't progressed since the start of organized religion. Just like that.

    It has to evolve as a cultural force based on the strength of its parables and moral lessons rather than on these teachings being deemed valid primarily because they were said to be the will of a supreme being.

    Organized religion is humanity, just people striving for what they like and what they think is right. Pure religion is something entirely different and doesn't have Baptist, Catholic, Methodist or Calvinist or any other name attatched to it. It is beautiful and soul saving and leads to a heavenly place.

    If organized religion disappeared, humanity would REGRESS because there would be no one to teach morals, right from wrong.

    It would eventually be chaos

    heck, we're getting close to that now!
