What I would get rid of to improve life in the 21st century. For me I would like to get rid of religion to improve life in the 21st century. As we all know, most people think that religion is the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods. Religious people mostly worship or believe in an omnipotent and diving being, have faith in them, do whatever they were told by it; they too, believe in the concept of omni-beneficient, which means that God is all-good. And now, in 21st century, the omnipresence of religion still can be seen anywhere. Religion had made war, and war had made monsters, scattered war around the world. Why do people believe in religion? Do they solace, save and strengthen us? Is being religious really a good thing? You can say yes because it was told that ‘God’ will always by your side, save you out of sorrow; no, because religion misdirect people. To me I think that religion might be just a psychological belief and it is not necessarily needed – a childish superstition. A lot of the readers might be utterly disagree with me by the time they read this article, they will think that this is absurd, ridiculous or ludicrous; I don’t care about the other religious people as this is an opinion of mine. Religions indoctrinate people, telling them to have faith into whatever they said, creating chaos, turmoil, and war. Statistic showed that 86% of the people in the world are religious; if a ‘holy’ religion war takes place it would mean that people around the world would get affected and imagine that, there are 7 billion people in this world. I seem to be engrossed by this forbidden of religion topic. I am an atheist myself and I personally do not hate religion in a particular way; it’s just that I chose not to believe in it even though that my parents are religious. I think that if religion doesn’t exist, we, human being, would have a much better scientific development. Why is that? You might ask. Some religions deny important and well proven pieces of science, for instance the dinosaurs. Religious evidence for example, Bible written that Adam and Eve are the first living on earth and they believe that when God created the Earth he used material from some other worlds he had created, and which means that dinosaurs’ remain just happen to be in soil and rocks from the other world. To me that is just asinine, for the fact that it is not actually scientifically proved and they believe it just because someone who claims to be able to interpret ‘God’s’ asserted it and despite of the fact that they even know it was once written by a human. Without religions, there would be less rationalized bigotry in the world but instead, more equality to humanity. Religion has always debated alongside with science and it is argumentative and cantankerous. It would not be difficult to come to an agreement as to what we understand by science. Science is the century-old endeavour to bring together by means of systematic thought the perceptible phenomena of this world into as thoroughgoing an association as possible. To put it boldly, it is the attempt at the posterior reconstruction of existence by the process of conceptualization. But when asking myself what religion is I cannot think of the answer so easily. And even after finding an answer which may satisfy me at this particular moment, I still remain convinced that I can never under any circumstances bring together, even to a slight extent, the thoughts of all those who have given this question serious consideration. To me incredibly religion seems to possess the ultimate trustworthiness somehow that a lot of people in the world were enthralled and postulate about it, magically giving trust and faith to people, starting a pandemonium debate. "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."This was a quote from a theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, asserting that even though...
