Completely agree. You don't see other social animals killing each other because of a lack in religion.
Norway is rated first place in the Human Development Index, only ~%20 of the population find religion to be of any importance ~%5 go to church.
"Without god people would have no restraints against killing each other"
That scares me right there. So the only reason those people don't go around killing people is because of a belief? They seem very unstable. To me that says, I want to kill you but I'm chained to a wall so I can't atm. I however am unrestrained and very friendly <3 Nothing against the chained up people but I would rather live in a world where nobody's intent is on killing anyone and they are free to roam and live there lives.
Religion is extremely idiotic. It's hate mongering shit.
