But then you'd get into arguments over what "religion" is - whether you're talking about organized things like Catholicism, or less-heirarchical religions like Islam, collections of often tenuously-related folk beliefs collected under an "ism" for our benefit (like "Shintoism'), or things like Buddhism that are arguably not religions at all.|
Who, or what, are you blaming when you (figurative "you"; not directly taking to anyone here, really) blame "religion" as a cause of war? Is it the beliefs? The people who believe them? The higher-up religious authorities who give their blessings to those who want to plunder? Religious institutions? God?
It's getting complicated now. But that's sort of the point.
