Is religion harmful? No,
but you can say that some religions can be harmful (E.g, Islam).
But, however not all religion are bad (E.g Christianity, Jainism, etc).
And in fact, studies have shown that religiosity is tend to positive social outcomes. And, the only way you could argue that religion is harmful, is by citing marginal examples.
And, I have provide evidence for my claims.
Wouldn't that go against Jesus's teaches tho? And, I do know that questions are not arguments.
It's depends on the type of religiosity you're talking about. (Intrinsic religiosity and extrinsic religiosity.)
"I stated which you have yet to clarify is that 3 of them probably help my side than yours."Quote: "The results of the meta-analysis show that religious beliefs and behaviors exert a moderate deterrent effect on individuals' criminal behavior."
Harm can be caused without it being a crime. This can be simply using your free speech to declare white superiority. A Christian example would be that whoever isn't following Christianity is going to hell. If I heard that when I was more gullible I would be harmed by that. There are enough people who would be harmed by saying you are going to a place forever only to burn which is why harm can be attributed to things that aren't a crime.
"You didn't use the evidence in your explanation."I have. And, it called meta analysis studies.
"I will copy it here:"But, marginal examples do not represent what's happening on the whole.
"You simply stated no Religion is not harmful."When did I say that?
