Imagine a world with no Religion. Would this be more conducive than a world with Religion?

Regards,

Den.

Den,
I see a benefit to having religion as a foundation to one's life,other-wise whats the point. If there is no chance to transcend this world then why behave with any moral scruples?

'why behave with any moral scruples?'

Why indeed? Perhaps and this is only my opinion from a social science perspective, society stamped down of murders, rapes, etc with moral codes, which admittedly differ from country to country, we all evolved different cultures; but do we not live by a moral code because of societal pressures?

Certainly I do not believe if you discount an after life you will become a mass murderer or rapist,

your thoughts?

Be sceptical,

Den.
