Is Nietzsche Right?

There was a time in history when the belief of Christian religion was forced upon the people by conquerors, fanatics and lunatics, or else meet the edge of their swords or be burned at the stakes. Had I lived at that time, I would have been fried.

Throughout the course of history, religion has been the source of a lot of wars. Ever wonder why there is so much war going on because of religion? Ever wonder why people's love for (a) God is always unrequited? Because he does not exist!

Religion teaches love, humbleness, forgiveness, charity and all those supposedly good traits to make us better people, instead it breaks us apart.

The Muslims, the Christians, the Jews, the Buddhists and any other religion, cannot expect people to submit to its theocracy or force its teachings. For me it makes no sense to believe in assumptions and assertions to the exclusion of any other viewpoint. To not question why we make the choices we do, why we believe the things we do, denies our inquisitive nature. The contradictions may be endless. And while I may not be right all the time, I respect what other people believe in. However, some of my opinions don't make me wrong and them right, or vice versa. It just makes us different, and we take different approaches toward the same thing.

To lessen chaos and to end poverty and hunger should be our first concern. But as it is, there's too much fighting and bickering, killing and genocide. What the heck is going on in our world? There's so much fuss about god and religion. Can't we, as a human race, just all get along?

Nietzsche once wrote that God is dead. He is wrong! God is not dead. He never existed.
