Religious wars.

Instead of waging war against religious people, isn't time we waged war against RELIGION itself?
A concentrated effort to stop the indoctrination of young people, whatever their race, with the insidious doctrines of religion, especially in schools would be a constructive start.
We may kill the fighters of the Taliban, Isis, Boko Haram, Hindus, Al Qaeda and the countless other so called 'terrorist's' at a great cost, both in human lives and financially.
If only a fraction of the resource's committed to violent conflict was used in an attempt to commit religious dogmas to the dustbin of history we may show progress.

The religious would take any

The religious would take any interference to indoctrination to be an act of war greater than simply killing them.

Depends on what you mean by

Depends on what you mean by "war". If you're talking about going Rambo, then no. The best way, in my opinion, is a civilian cultural cold war. Knowledge and logic given to future generations is the only thing that can destroy this evil indoctrination. Using violence will just make them stronger. Not to mention sink to their level.

I certainly didn't mean a military war against religion ( I leave this to religious people to kill each other, which they seem most capable). No, I mean a 'war' of words against irrational religious dogma, in the media and where ever possible. The problem however lies in the fact that religion has become privileged, and immune from criticism, it seems cultural wrong to challenge or question it.

Religions can really create

Religions can really create division in the world so hopefully they'll banish for good and to create true unity to mankind.

The internet has been a great

The internet has been a great way to break into their closed groups with information to counter the lies they teach. Its causing lots of problems for them in that regard. Many young people aren't buying what they are selling anymore.

Definitely a war of words.

Definitely a war of words. Its already started. Atheism is the fastest spreading "idea" in world history. In the U.S. alone it went from 4% in 2005 to 14% present day. I believe this is so to access to information. We are in the time of information. The world is literally at our fingertips and we are no longer a victem of cultural isolation.
