Geez, where do I start? Ever hear of the Salem witch trials? What about the Inquisition where thousands of women were tortured, raped, and then burned alive--SLOWLY--in the name of god?

Crusades... Enough said. I dont think any atheist would support holy war

Christians = Dark Ages, Crusades, superiority complex. Muslims = Theocratic societies in which scientific progress is stifled and apostasy carries the death penalty. Need I go on? @Shelby Do you realize you just set up a straw man in defense of religion?
Answered By: Emotions Blind Your Logic - 8/29/2010
There are some religions that do not hurt anyone, Like Buddhism. Other than that I see no other religion that doesn't kill in the name of their God. Then again I would consider Buddhism more so of a philosophy, in which people follow. But there are so many killings in the name of people's religion it is sad, makes you... More

If there was no god man would just make something else up to worship, look at the elvis and micheal jackson worshippers. lol I love when people say the crusades religion was just propaganda for the government at the time to obtain more land and steal gold. Man kills people not religion.
Answered By: lostrelic - 8/29/2010
I don't think that's true. At least religious people have a reason to be the best person they could be during their lives. They want to be good people so that they could end up in a better place after they die. If people didn't have that fear, who knows how lazy people would be with "being good people", you know? The...

Yeah, right. Vladmir Lenin said that right before he slaughtered 300,000 Christians and clergy, and then put up a 300 foot statue of........himself. Atheism has done mucho to destroy life on this planet, just as the Vatican instigated Inquisition did. Both should be wiped off the face of the planet.

Oh I don't know, wars, pointless deaths, social tension because the fanatics think they are right, etc. Quite honeslty, I think people should keep religion to themselves and quit forcing their beliefs on others, it's a personal thing, not something that needs to be controlled by others. Ever heard of freedom of... More

Dont forget about the Dark Ages. Nearly 1000 years of total scientific stagnation.
Answered By: Landon - 8/29/2010
It's pretty obvious. No one would have a reason to kill someone else for thinking their religion was the only one that should exist. No wars!
Answered By: mochiee - 8/29/2010
What I think we truly need to get rid of are fundamentalism and political religion. Fundamentalism (of almost any kind) is just not right. I remember reading one of electronica artist Moby's essays in the booklet of his big album Play that said something along of the lines of "admitting we're wrong is a way of growing... More

If there was no religion atheists would have to find something else to object to and no it would be a worse place than it is now with human objection to God as their king.
