A wise man quote. Parents teaches their children to hate another race.

Nelson Mandela QUOTES

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

    There is nothing wrong with the color of human skin. It’s the beast beneath that skin that’s hateful.

    Religions teach children to look down on the infidels.

      How did religions come about? Are they fashioned in our minds?

        They are invented by human beings.

          True hatred and love are created by humans.

            I am sure species other than Homo sapiens also experience such emotions.

      Isn’t everything we know about life – including the fact that we are humans – invented by us also?

        Are you suggesting that a religion is knowledge of the world?

          No, I am not suggesting that. Religion is a view of life – a weltanschauung fashioned by the mind or invented by humans, as you put it. Therefore, we invented ourselves as members of a specie. No alien life-forms affirmed and corroborated that fact and said: "Yeah, you are humans and this is your planet called Earth. We invented the whole shebang all by ourselves.

            The point is religion isn’t knowledge: it is just ideas invented by people.

          It depends on what you mean by “religion”. Knowledge about life is an understanding of facts acquired through learning based on a premise formulated by the mind.

            I do not think it is a semantic issue. When I used the word religion, I was using it in the ordinary everyday sense: which includes such phenomena as Christianity, Jainism, Islam, or any of the other ten thousand currently existing or countless ones that are now extinct.

          It is a semantic issue! Your meaning of the word “religion” conveys as much information as the word “chair” – an object, with four-legs and back, on which to sit. Regarding religion in such a dismissive manner would be akin to defining Steve Hayes as a man with a head, two arms and two legs.
