"native cultures were devastated by many unintentional means."

Some native cultures shouldn't be preserved, no not forgotten just not countinued. That would be some of them. If the europeans didn't come over to them. They would have countinued there millenias long war against each other. In fact the coming of europeans actually preserved the peaceful parts of there culture with out destroying the culture it self. Yes the setlers did to many wrong things to the natives, but when one looks back the natives did many bad things ti the settlers as well.

"All those examples are obvious and well known. You said that you didn't "think that all organized religion has cuased harm", so you would be right if you could produce just one counter example.

Can you?"

Yep. Mine. The Assemblies of God. Not a single cursade, uprising or mass murder to it's name. In fact the idea behind Assemblies of God is to be what the original christains were, not the humanistic catholic hierarchy that took over christanity.

Yeah I must agree with you on the cult thing. I can't think of a single one that hasn't ruined the lives of the people that went into it.

God Bless
