I am talking about the idea of a single dogmatic view and theory that one group who believes in some ancient fairy tales is right and that all the other group's fairy tales are wrong. This is what religion is and it has been used to incite and justify many mass murders throughout history. The thing with religion is there is absolutely NO TRUTH
in any of them. Other than a few actual places we have zero provable reliability in any of the books or teachings of any religion. To me it is therefore the biggest waste of human time and effort to ever appear on this planet and the arguments over who is right in their particular theory may have led to many wars and will lead to many more and yet not one will ever be proven correct.
