    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.
