    We are now in the 21st Century of our common era with its insights into the potential of what can be achieved in the near future to benefit mankind for years to come .

    The co-operation of Governments around the world on so many levels has never been better than it is today and it is at least encouraging to see this .

    Whether it has to do with the climate , the environment ,food production ,safe water for all ,and the better health for all in the near future, and in the future space exploration. etc.etc.etc,

    However the problem today is still religion ! in its many extreme forms that divides us in no ways that politics divide us .

    Politicians learn how to compromise and work with their opponents for the greater good ,whereas religions don`t.

    Religions divide humans like no politicians ever did well not to the extremes religions will go anyway.

    Is their going to come a time in history when Governments Politicians say enough is enough and try attempt to abolish religion ?

    Surely sooner or later this time will come , but not in my lifetime .

    It would be interesting to see exactly when the JWs introduced this idea of all religions being banned. They were so big on the idea in the 80’s.

    Religions and politicians prostitute each other. No way outlawing one.

    Abolish? No. Consolidate? Yes.

    Abolishing religion is a totalitarian thing to do. Every freedom loving person should defend the right to believe whatever you want to believe, knowing that ideas have to pass muster in the market place of ideas.

    Abolishing religion means abolishing free thought.

    No. However, I do see a time in which mankind will eventually abandon religion.

    Think of all the religions that have gone to the wayside due to Christianity converting the masses. Now, Christianity is starting to wain. Islam seems to be on the incline as the new convert-or-die religion replacing Roman Imperial Christianity.

    Religions do a lot of charity work that the Governments would otherwise have to provide. As long as they continue to do so, it is not in the interest of the Governments to abolish them.

    Government can never abolish people who believe in crazy things. Getting rid of religion can only be done when people themselves start seeing the evidence that religion is a man made construct. People have to individually stop believing in fantasies and start living their life in realities.

    Don't have and idea how long that is going to take, but it will get here sooner or later. Can't imagine a million years from now if the human race is still here, that people will still believe that Jesus will soon come to judge everyone.

    No not in the immediate future, religion is strongly supported by the UN and some are just too big and expansive.
