This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.

Are advocates of religious views more likely to use violence than nonreligious ones?
Religions are amongst the possible comprehensive views of the world. But there are nonreligious views that have comprehensive views of reality. Those who want to make sure others have the same comprehensive view as oneself might be inclined to use violence. But I don't see any reason to expect more violence from advocates of religious worldviews as opposed to nonreligoius ones.
