I am watching a documentary on television about Lebanon which even now still troubled by sectarian troubles between the two major Muslim Sects which is reflected all over the Middle East in various wars across the region.
Myself I think it is total madness as these people are fighting over a belief which is may or may not be real rather than something more tangible like freedom and self determination. I really do not understand how someone can kill and hate someone just because they believe in something else or in this case they believe in the same god but in a different way.
I understand more if they were fighting over food, rights even territory as they are real but to fight over something intangible is total madness especially when the said same people commit atrocities in the name of their beliefs as it total madness and inhuman!
All it does is enforce my view that religion now does more harm than good to the world in general or to be more exact certain religions do. This all made worse the religions in question claim to promote peace, tolerance and the such.
What makes their positions and actions worse is that there are other religions around the world who do not follow the same path and they can live peacefully with other religions and cultures peacefully. Plus here in the United Kingdom the said same religions in question leave peacefully even with their various sub-sects and tolerate each others beliefs.
The said religions being Christians, Jews and Muslims who strangely believe in the same God who in one country can live in peace but in others they spread a madness which kills people in such pointless ways and cruelty.
Then they wonder why sometimes Agnostics and Atheists have such negative view of these religions as such actions make them look so insane and inhuman to anyone who looks from the outside!
