Religions Role in History

With it we have created monuments containing artistry and Beauty.

Yet we have also pillaged and destroyed each others lives and things.

We have used it to try and spare all life.

Yet we slaughter the innocents in the names of Gods we have never seen.

We have created rules and Governments to protect one another.

Yet we break them to force our beliefs onto others.

We have used it to explain humanities Greatest accomplishments.

Yet we have also used it as a shield and excuse to hide the blood the will forever stain our hands.

It may truly be the most influential factor of human history. 

All I ask is, was it worth it?
