Forcibly abolishing religion, even for the greater good, sounds just a tiny bit fascist.
Religion is not based on critical thinking and evidence, but rather based on faith. Ideas shared within the society should be based on science as a means of acquiring knowledge, not on faith.
Abolishing religion by force rather than reason is ineffective and immoral
The eradication of religion should be achieved through education, not force.
You cannot "abolish" religion. It's not like there's just some "Religion Act" floating around just waiting to be repealed; and then just like clockwork everyone turns into an atheist. It would involve mass persecution, probably genocide, propaganda, manipulation, and oppression. Atheists wont mind.
Religion provides morals for people who are too lazy to develop their own. Thus "turn the other cheek" and "I forgive you" would go on the decline
There is no governing body with enough authority to coerce its people to stop religious practices. For example, the federal gov. in USA, as of now, legally could not due to the Bill of Rights.
Religion makes my butt hurt
Effects are the products of causes. Imagine if workers tore down a factory that treated employees poorly. The factory is an effect of the unwillingness of society to treat their workers fairly. Unless the underlying cause is changed, another factory will be built. Religion is an effect of a case.
Religion is just a term to group various models of understanding. It is not possible to abolish certain types of cognition; the best we can do toward the premise is better education. Which is why religion in general continues to wane in 'developed' countries.
Freedom of religion is a fundamental right of all people. Religion is a personal belief, and people should be allowed to follow what they believe to be true in their own hearts. It is not only an important part of our history as a civilization but a necessity in the pursuit of happiness for many.
The only way to abolish religion is by force, ultimately culminating in genocide. Are you really advocating for that?
However it should be limited to organized religion, not what someone personally believes.
The scope of such a task should be kept in mind, as abolishing religion would imply removing hundreds and hundreds of religions and variants of religion from billions of people across all of the planet.
But abolishing religion is equatable to abolishing a certain culture. Statements made about discrimination based on sex, race, social status, etc. also include religion. Therefore abolishing religion would be a form of discrimination.
We can know through logic and psychology with good certainty that the concept of a "creater" or a "god" is a human idea. The only reason we believe in all nonsense is because we're taken advantage of at a very vulnerable and young age.
Religion amplifies the tendency of humans to follow dogma. This tendency is frequently hijacked by charlatans
Religion is a part of human history and is entirely human. Abolishing religion will also abolish things like literature, language, music, and customs.
Religion is the source of all war
