    When the principles and teachings of a religion are applied correctly, they do not hold back the human race. The key here is to apply the principles of a religion correctly.

    For instance, I can look at Christianity as a hateful religion. Or I can look at the principles that I have been taught through the Bible. They teach me to

    Spend time with those who I don't agree with (Jesus at with the tax collectors and sinners)

    Turn the other cheek when someone hurts you.

    To walk in compassion and love.

    Because it causes people to stick to the same beliefs that are several thousand years old. This raises another point. Whenever people talk about religion, its always "I believe" something. So religion is not about truth. It blinds the human race so we live in fear about what some upper being can do to us if we don't listen. You know, since religion is just a set of beliefs, and we do not believe it, religion would not have any effect on our daily lives.

    In many ways.

    Look at the countries who embrace religion the most and see how it has caused many problems, and stopped development. Then look at the countries that have not let religion rule and have progressed more rapidly.

    Religion = Problems

    No religion = A more peaceful and advanced society for all

    all the fights in the universe is because of the various religions. I think there should be only one religion of being a human thats it..no other religion.

    Religion, along with anything that is given a "trump card" status, will always hold back society.

    Religion doesn't hold back anything. Laziness, sloth, carelessness, apathy, and incompetence are far more damaging to the human race.

    Look at what lack of Religion has done for us.........

    Is this what you call promoting the human race? Murder, Death, Drug abuse, intolerance, War, I think I will take Religion myself.
