Religions are to be out.

Religions have enslaved people and divided them as Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, (and into their tens or hundreds of warring sects) Jains, Sikhs, Confucians, etcThey have brought so many wars, communal riots, terror, murder, beheading & rape. 

Elders have been still indoctrinating children deciding what they should think and believe instead of letting them find out what is true or good. I think in-the-not-so-distant-future our descendants (as it has happened in most of the developed world already) will discard religious beliefs. They will restore intellectual freedom and become better humans. 

Philosophers and scientists who read 1000s of books and latest journals are atheists. A recent survey has revealed that 86% of the English speaking philosophers are atheists. Surveys on members of NASA, composed of the most prestigious scientists in world, show that religious belief is almost non-existent.
Common people who read only their Holy Book are deep believers-why? Is it not because of the indoctrination of kids mentioned? 

The earlier gods like Osiris, Dionysus, Mithras, Cybele, Horus, Zeus, Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Pluto, Apollo, Diana, Athena, Mercury, Achilles, Adonis, Eros, Hercules, Orion, Sphinx, Odysseus, Isis, and thousands of others from the Greek, Roman and Egyptian, mythology and native African and Indian- American religions have died and gone. Many of the Indian Vedic gods and goddesses - Mitra, Aditi, Adityas, Bhaga, Dhaksha, Surya, Prithivi Varuna, Agni, Ushus, Sapta, Sindhu, Sarasvati, Yama, Rudhra, Urvasi, Vayu are all now defunct. There are a few remaining ones like Jesus, Mary, Krishna, Rama and Allah. They will disappear too in the course of time. 

We are living in an era when humans make a slow but steady progress from superstitious beliefs and magical rituals to reason and science.  We know that even the story of Jesus has been invented; he is a mythical figure. There is nothing divine in any religion. The universe is self originating and self propelling and it does not need any god.

People of the developed world are fast becoming atheists, and they are found to be happier, more peaceful, developed, richer, generous and empathetic than believers. There is more rape, war, terror, hypocrisy, revenge and poverty in the deeply religious societies (like in the ME,SE Asia,Africa &even the US) than say in Japan,Korea,Canada,New Zealand,Aussies &W.European nations which are turning generally irreligious.  

Religions  have done so much harm; had they not been invented, humans would have had a better and more peaceful life.
