@ericpuryear It would be better to imagine the world without attacking a straw man. There are many reasons of terrorism: bigotry, fear, critical level of social alienation... But not religion.

@VGM Religion is not a strawman, but the cause of the crime discussed in that meme.

It takes religion to convince people to commit a suicide attack to please an (imaginary) god. It takes the (imaginary) rewards and punishments in the afterlife that religion offers to convince people to commit atrocities that would otherwise be unthinkable.
