How have the Crusades shaped modern times?

    The constant war between Christians and Muslims has yet to end.  Even if you aren't a follower of one of those religions in many ways that's a tragedy for all of human kind.  As a species we need to learn to be more tolerant towards different cultures and less tolerant towards hateful speech from religious leaders who use fear and division for personal gain.

    Religion was a crutch that humans perhaps needed to band together to protect themselves but we no longer need that crutch and it only leads to conflict instead of allowing us to move forward.  We no longer need religion, it's an evolutionary vestige, a dead end, but we still wallow in its dark side.  Religion has become more about politics than actual religion and that's a big part of the problem.
