    From the birth the religions make us identify ourselves as 'we' and 'them'. Most humans in the world were from childhood brought up/brainwashed with religious dogma. This leaves us with emotional 'scars' for the rest of our lives, as do any other abuse in childhood. A child is absorbing what it is 'fed'. It's up to us as adults to question what is right and wrong, because, as children we didn't know or dare to question the correctness of what we were told. A good starting point for a better world with less hatred would be to abolish religions/religious dogmas. All individuals of all religions ought, as adults, to re-educate themselves, again and again, in order to get rid of prejudices stemming from childhood indoctrination. Only then will we be able to live in a world with less hatred towards each other. With education and hard work one can eliminate feeling victimized, resulting in more openness and trust toward other human beings. This is the case for anyone of any religion.
