But wars have been fought over "beliefs" that have nothing to do with religion. If it wasn't religion it would be some other excuse to give to the rubes while you grab land and money.|
The fear of death thing, though, is a fair point. But, again, people can be martyrs for non-religious causes. Glory of the revolution and all that. And I'd say most people still fear death, religious or no - it's only a minority of nutters who would actually go blow themselves up for Allah or whatever.
I remember reading about a kamikaze survivor (he missed a frigate and flew into the sea, bless him) who said that many of his fellow pilots had to be literally pushed into their planes.
