divide bc no one can agree on anything... it seems alot of ppl cant just have one religion.. too many ppl have too many different beliefs . i think ppl should just be good ppl. do unto others as youd have dun unto you. golden rule!
Religion is by definition restrictive - but when some people start feeling too restricted & want to do things are forbidden, they just branch o f& create their own religion. So of course the divisions will continue.
Religion and different beliefs are the biggest cause of conflict in the world. There will always be people who are willing to do anything for what the believe in, even if it's not in the best interest of the majority. This is why I don't like religion, I think that like agoraphobik said, people should just do what they can to be a good person.
Honestly - I think they will continue to divide and religions will be more about hating those who are not your religion then anything else.... perhaps a select few will realize that most religions are about improving the quality of your person and love....it's those few people I am counting on to save the world
