Strange that this thread is still going. It seems pretty obvious that the OP is misinformed and has since been informed and the rest of us are informed and no longer need this thread for information.

doo be doo be doo, beware of the penguins.

It's only just on page 2 dude. But I agree, little purpose to keep it going. There are better threads regarding the topic of abrahamic religions. Well if go by the first post in it.

Now you might say...banning religion is the same as China. No, it isn't, China is a fascist dictatorship that tortures animals...in China...stealing is illegal...In America...stealing is also illegal...if we have one or two rules the same as China that doesn't make us anything like China...banning Abrahamic religion should be a basic rule, like stealing.

 

 

 

 

   This underlies a lot of the complexity involved with the relationship people seem to have with their religion. You provide an example of morality, I think a lot of people  rely on their faith to be informed by concepts such as morality, so perhaps a religious person looks at your example and thinks something along the lines of "Well, we view torturing animals in the particular context we do in America... because it's shaped by these  Christian values" or something...

 

 

  To relate to your example though, I've heard North Korea referred to as an "Atheist" country. I don't really know too much about Eastern Cultures but based on one special I've seen on North Korea (which admittedly is not a lot to go on) suggested to me that their "Atheism", if we are to call it that, is something far more bizarre than what we tend to relate to Atheism in the West. For instance, in the special the people we're chanting something along the lines of "Our Ruler, who will reign for Thousands of years! " when Kim-Jong-Un came out for a speech. It may just be a chant, but this clearly sounds like something you might hear from a deeply religious state, I was taken aback and it's hard to really understand in terms of what I and I think many associate as the Empirically oriented, Rational to a fault, Atheism of the West, that has Science as kind of an established mode to inform reality.

Also, Hindus and Buddhists having a low impact on intelligence and society isn't correct.

 

 

I know I've heard of some Hindus groups that for lack of a better term, I'd describe as "terrorists", but can you provide any examples of how Hindus and Buddhists interfere with social and intellectual progress?

Hinduism has the absolutely entrenched caste system that prevents any kind of social mobility.

I think I misread the OP's statement. I'm saying that they have contributed to social and intellectual progress; not detracted. 

 

That being said, isn't terrorism an absolute deterrent to human progress?

Hindus and muslims clash violently in India every once in awhile. Sometimes it's a bunch of muslims and sometimes its a bunch of hindus who instigated the conflict.

Definitely, I was just interested to see if you had some concrete examples and thanks for the clarification.
