|A 1956 encyclopaedia's view on the computer|

|Two weeks ago, my grandmother passed away - the last grandparent I had left. As those of you with experience in dealing with deceased family members know, the funeral is only the start; the next part is taking care of the deceased's affairs, which includes going through all their belongings to determine what to do with them. I took care of my grandmother's extensive book collection, and while doing so, I hit something that fascinated me to no end: a six-volume Christian Encyclopaedia from 1956. In it, I found something I just had to share with OSNews.|

> religion is not really the cause of all these conflicts, but basically the "HUMAN" behavior |
And of course, not surprising to see this one...
It's really hilarious-sad-telling-scary that you are able to see ~"religion good, bad is from human nature" as a remotely valid argument ...while your own mythology says that the omniscient deity made us that way.
And, silly mythologies aside, religions are at least among most (if not the most) long-lasting and influential social structures, it's ridiculous to claim they didn't greatly influence us in all ways and directions - not only "they bring out the good in us - the rest is just human nature"
