    Maybe…

    What would the world be like if there wasn’t religious indoctrination of the young, no matter the religion.

    Oh I know, my (religion) is right, yours is wrong, just like my Congressman is good but yours sux, right?

    So…..what would it be like, peaceful maybe?

    No, it would be nothing of the sort.

    Many blame religion for the deaths of millions. And that is true. However, during its single century of existence, atheistic communism was responsible for the deaths of 100 million people . Without the fear of God, people are capable of anything.

    Whether there is a God or not is immaterial here, the fact is that the concept of the existence of God is necessary if for nothing else but to save us from our nature.

    We would be acting like selfish animals, to the detriment of society. A lack of moral code would mean we would couldn't work together, always being leary of one another, trusting noone.

    Some believe Morals aren't the result of Religion, but rather are innate; everyone is born generally 'good'.

    Most religions have very close to the same Moral code. The concepts around the 10 commandments are universal.

    That's not the issue; the point is that all societies need one. Of course, you can try to change the subject to phantom ethnocentricism, but it doesn't negate my correctness.
