Just browsing through a couple of topics as I digested my half price coffee etc etc (part of Boris Johnson's "get 'em back on the High Street" strategy) and I found yet another "religion is the main cause of war/oh no it isn't" threads.

It seems that if the various Christianity v Islam, Catholic v Protestant wars throughout history are mentioned, we are then treated to various "ah, but the underlying cause was economic, not religion as such". Thus the Faith is untouched.

Then we are treated to a list of wars in the past century, all the result of "atheists" of one colour or another. No underlying cause sought. Lack of "belief" is implied as the sole cause.

It seems pretty obvious that human conflict has diverse causes, very inter-related. Religion is one of them.

What say you?
