Very sloppy history.
High school level, over simplified and in error.
Would not muster an C in a tenth grade world history class.
Look these up again and come back with five, defending your ideas.

You obviously have no idea how long eternity is. LOL.
You do not either. Though a scientific mind is capable of grasping numbers far greater than that of the religious one. We consider billions of years, or trillions of bytes, centillion cells, or quadrillions of planets. You think the Earth is 6,000 years old because you simply cannot grasp the concept of billions.

Typical type of response. Atheist accuse religion of murder and death and when a small simple list that over whelms anything religion has ever done this is you pathetic response.

Oh and then KK will try and slip in her worthless two cents worth. I think the world would stand still if she ever offered up anything worth anything.

Considering you actually think you'd enjoy an eternity of just worshiping some god .... you obviously have no clue.

Ok take these five.

4)How were the Napoleonic War, atheist?

5.)The Revolutions in the Americas
North Ameria?
South America?
Peru and Argentine experiences was different.
How were they atheist.

3.)The French Revolution certainly, you could defend this, atheism played a part.!!!!

2.)The American Revolution had God fearing people on both sides. Are you confusing secularism with atheism.

1.) The Seven Years War (Britain & France) Protestant Britain/(England at the time) against Catholic France.

OK - You are correct with the French Revolution.

List is too long and often in error.

Crusades were justified in turning back Muslim invasions of Europe.
Justified in the military sense, not in morality.
The barbarism of the 20th century seems to know no match in history, sadly.

There's that deep Christian misanthropic pessimism chiseled by decades of hearing you how useless and depraved man is, and how horrible the world is. Humanism offers a much cheerier perspective. No sin, no perdition, no judgment, no demons, and no damnation - just a love of mankind, a respect for the planet and life in general, a love of justice and of truth, and an optimism for the future and man's incredible potential based on his historical arc.

Americans are among the most unhealthy people in the world. Surrounded by technological affluence, we have fancy heart scans that can give us a nice picture of our clogged arteries. With diabetes reaching epidemic proportions Americans are fatter than they've ever been. Crammed with highly sophisticated scientific equipment, the fourth leading cause of mortality among Americans is infections in our hospitals. More Americans are strung out on psychoactive drugs than any other country in the world. This practice even has a name, it's called the "the medicalization of unhappiness." Seventy five percent of our nation’s population breathes unhealthy amounts of air pollution...BUT...our cars are faster, our houses are bigger, and our menus a smorgasbord of cheap unnutritional food designed to titillate even the most fickle of palates.
Bummer.

The humanist is right.

When Christians are the majority, we have laws that prevent same sex marriages, for example. Both of those are changing.

Did Mr. Haggard repent? I don't know, and neither do you – that's between him and God. If he did repent, he's been forgiven. If he did not, he will be held accountable.
There's that cheap Christian forgiveness on demand.

And no, Mr. Haggard's hypocritical homophobia is not forgiven. I don't forgive it, and I doubt too many other skeptics do, either. I hold the good reverend accountable whether he mutters demands at his ceiling fan or not.

And not for snorting illicit powders off of the nut-sack of his man-whore in a motel, but for being a hateful and hypocritical homophobe like his god, and teaching others to be as well.

Neither do you, but then again, you think the earth is 6000 years old, so your concept of time is proven to be f*cked.
