    • I do find your article really interesting Zach! I think it is a weird thing to think about, how something that is supposed to lead us to good can lead to so many conflicts. I think it is really hard to think about how many lives have been lost over the topic of religion. I do think that religion offers some good into our society, but is also astonishing how much harm it can bring as well. I read this article on how religion can hurt our society, and I think you should check it out!
