    because people think that they are Right and what they know is The Truth, therefor whenever they can justify a war as being God’s Will, they will.

    Actually, more wars are fought over perceived power and resources…they just use God’s Will as an excuse.

    People suck.

    because god is within…which is a very very very personal thing. We’re all different, and therefore there’s no way we could all believe in the same things. 🙂 And man is a proud and warrior type being…

    Perhaps God is within.. but Vibe is exposable without starting any wars.

    not when you have the humanistic ability to be greedy, power-hungry, and evil…I mean, god created good but he also created evil. Can’t have one without the other. And therefore, peace is not achieved without a counter-balance. While I don’t agree with the way Bush handled the middle east, and I certainly don’t condone wars, I do believe that if it weren’t for some key wars in our history, we may not even be able to have this conversation.

    My theories:
    – because exposing our beliefs exposes our vulnerabilities, and hiding our vulnerabilities is one thing we must do *at all costs*

    – because who controls your land/resources doesn’t seem to have as much impact on your day-to-day happiness as who controls your culture (and yes, these things are often dictated by the same person) – and most cultures seem to have evolved prior to a time when state was separate from church, so “God” is built right in

    – belief implies having faith, not having proof… like, believing in the easter bunny. Otherwise, you would just know it, it’d be a fact, like, my parents will buy me socks for christmas. You don’t fight for things you know – they are true regardless of whether you fight for them or not. Things you might be wrong about though… that’s worth fighting for. Because if you don’t suppress the nay-sayer who denies easter bunnies exist, you might be in for a non-chocolatey surprise 🙁

    Power, money, land… yea… I would dare say that most of the “wars over god” were actualy something entirely diffrent…
    What war do you honestly belive was fought over God?
