Equuestrian, you do have a good point.
HOWEVER, Religion (or the excuse of) has been the cause behind so many deaths and wars, I believe it's become less of a good religion into an excuse to exercise your demonic free will.
I won't change religion exactly, but it sort of falls into my first category.

1. People
2. Animal Laws (We need to be much more clout in order to prosecute guilty parties)
3. The importance of money

1) Everyone would be treated equally to end racism, sexism, stereotypes, etc.
2) Everyone would become more involved in the 'going green' effort and 'saving our planet' etc.
3) People would stop hunting illegally for pelts, ivory, etc and species going extinct would be given an opportunity to thrive.

These aren't that great but its all I could come up with on the spot...

1.) For religion, sexuality, race, and gender to not be a topic of issue! We need to be allowed to believe in what we want, or love someone without fear of someone burning our houses down! If you do something wrong it shouldn't matter what race you are you should still get punished the same as the last guy (or gal). I am sure I will not live to see a world as great as this, but there is always hope. We don't all have to be the same!

2.) To conserve our world. If we need to cut trees down to make paper, we need to grow them first! Just like we grow our beef, it should be the same with everything else. We only have one world! we need to stop thinking of ourselves and think of our children and our childrens children! It has to start somewhere, might as well be now, before its too late.

3.) For one day a week, EVERYONE has to either carpool, take public transit, walk, bike, or even take a horse :) to work or school!

Interesting thoughts everyone!

I see that religion is something most would change. What are your thoughts? Would atheistic beliefs over-take an actual God-based religion in a vote?

I have many, but I too will name 3:

1) Abortion. Murder IMO. I think every 30-60 seconds one dies.

2) Stereotypical natural of man. Just because you person out of a certain race does something, dosen't mean ALL are that way, and so on so forth.

3) The obsession of trying to 'make up' for his looks as one gets older with every type of cream, procedure, make up, etc known to man.
Face lifts.
Really? Give me a break. We are all going to eventually get old and get wrinkles, and it IS natural to want to look good, but people have brought it a little far, IMO.

Well, personally I think that religion has caused a lot of violence and hostility towards people, it separates them into groups. And when I said unlimited everything I meant for ME not everyone :P I know that if everyone had it society would be, well, unmotivated.
Basically, I have one thing. I would want an absolutely perfect, happy life.

1. People would have their own opinions, but respect those that were opposite. (People would listen and attempt to understand rather than refuse to see the other side).

2. People would be conscious of their effects on their surroundings (Earth, Animals, other people) and put forth an effort to leave things better than they found it.

3.Everyone would find pure happiness. (Happiness not made by money, power, etc but the same happiness I get when I'm galloping my horse).

As far as your question, Sunny. I think most people are not atheist. They are more agnostic. Humans are full of fear, and fear of the unknown is a good thing. Everyone wants to believe that their life has meaning and that this is just not chaos. I just think some people either don't know what that is (it's hard to be 100%) or they are scared off of religion because of the debate and politics.

Oh boy. I know I am about to get hated on for this....

1. Everyone would be Christian.

2. Everyone would be Republican, or at least have conservative views. No gay marriage, no abortion, and other crap like that.

3. Teachers, policemen, firefighters and people like that would get payed more. They do more work for less the money these days, and I hate that.

There's too many things I'd like to change, and I can't pinpoint 3 real good ones off the top of my head at this moment.

But I don't think everyone should have to change to one religion/no abortion.

For religion, everyone should have their own choice about what they believe. That's their choice. I don't think you can force everyone to believe one thing, and expect everyone to be happy.

For abortion, I figure even if you make it illegal to have an abortion that somewhere somehow there will be a woman getting an abortion anyway. Even if she has to do it by herself, and even if there's a big chance that she might die. She'll get it done. I figure if you make it legal that you'll let the women who don't want it not to have it done, and for the women who want it to have it done.

I think that we should try to help out the earth, you know all the 'going green' talk. Planting trees and such. I've always been for that.

I think we should all try, and make an effort to help the WWF.
Helping the endangered spieces, etc. Once they're gone, they're gone for good.

And I'm just gonna throw this out there...
But it would be totally awesome if we had better space ships, and regular people were able to go out in space and go on different planets/galaxies. Completely random I know, but come on! Wouldn't that be cool?!
