Section H01 Group 3
Today we discussed whether or not belief or disbelief in a God was beneficial. It was stated that religious beliefs did not necessarily determine personal character, but could be used as a reason to do good for others. An example would be organizing a church or other group together to do a community event. In the case of religious individuals they might be following holy texts such as the Bible which says that one should be good to other people. In the case for those who are not religious they might wish to make the most of their time on Earth and positively contribute to humanity. However on the opposite note violent and judgmental extremists may be found in all beliefs, but these people should not be judged based on their personal beliefs but by their personal character.
