In Drishtantoism, God is not neglected but avoided. Here avoidance doesn’t mean opposing God but staying at a distance from the being. As God can never be proven, man has to be in the earth by the might of man-made philanthropic ethics. Shobuj Taposh acknowledges certainly that by opposing/neglecting traditional religion, it is not possible to have worldly peace. And again by giving importance to it, it is not possible to have worldly peace too.

Shahinur, you don't require Drishtantoism, Buddhism, Taoism, or any other dogma or doctrine. You don't need to have someone else do your thinking for you. Don't believe things because a sacred book, or a spiritual leader, or an organization tells you to believe. Think for yourself. Look at the evidence, think carefully, and come to your own conclusions. If someone tells you to believe something, ask, "Why should I believe that?" When people make claims, they must support their claims with evidence.

Shahinur, I agree with prior speakers. In addition I think opposing/neglecting traditional religion is the only chance to have world peace. In place of religion we need to repudiate ideologies, reject indoctrination and subscribe to rational basis ethics.

I'm curious. How does one go about avoiding the non-existent? If it doesn't exist, I couldn't come into contact with it, even if I wanted to. Not trying to be dismissive, but this strikes me as some sort of New Aged (or possibly Old Aged) nonsense. Do I avoid the trolls living under the bridge that eat the billy goats gruff (Western children's fairy tale) by using a different bridge? Does it really matter, since there's no such thing as trolls?

Personally, I don't see a lot of point in avoiding something that doesn't exist.  My general attitude is that I DISMISS the concept of god, using the Null Hypothesis.  As has been stated and restated practically to death around here, a proposed thing which has no evidence to substantiate itself has no existence.   This statement may be applied to any god, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Invisible Pink Unicorn and my own personal favorite: a left-handed zindlefinger.  And let us not forget:

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
