I think "destruction" is a strange choice of words. Many religions in the Axial Age were born in the midst of violence and offered an alternative perspective, story or imagination to the people that suffered. Humanist or Secular movements under the name of Capitalism, Democracy, Socialism and Communism have caused suffering in our present age. All can present Utopian idealism without offering a solution to the present need. The only thing we can judge is the way people act, regardless of their belief system.
