DoWeNeedReligion.com is a private blog with private thoughts on life, society and religion. Its goal is not to offend, insult or hurt but to inform and inspire. It might be time to reconsider. A long time ago people thought the Earth was flat. We now know better. In many countries in the world trash still gets thrown into the ocean. That’s how it was always done. Most countries now know better.

Atheism is growing strong. Atheists are not immorals. People now can barely start to imagine a world without religion. Is this the only problem we have? No. But it might be a place to start. When people stop pretending they are on the only and ultimate true path, because they are part of any religion, our planet could have a better tomorrow.
