Sounds like the religious morality to me. Slavery? Well, it was OK in Old Testament times, but not now. Subjection of women? Birth control? The religious stance on these questions has generally been the immoral one.
Not forgetting the zero tolerance that religious people have for people of other beliefs.

Communism is vanished at all. Capitalism is on the brink of its existence. This does not mean humanity is in a nuclear age in an extreme danger of extinction yet. Religion is not have a survival as a myth. Maybe religion may have some life in the private region.

The only life of capitalism is profit (superprofit) which war is bringing. In the nuclear age this may be the end of mankind before capitalism has gone.
Ans.

Who says demise of Capitalism and Communism means that human race is due for extinction?

It shows that age of these isms are over that there is one course left for humans to turn back to their Creator and enjoy peace and tranquility on this earth.

Nuclear and biological and chemical weapons would not bring peace and tranquility on this earth.

Neither would all this advancement is science and technology…. They only help is meeting the need of physical body.

But the souls and spirits of mankind is hungry, they also want food and nourishment.

And the food and nourishment for soul and spirits is “Remembrance of their Creator”. If you feed and nourish them by “Junk food” like Music and dance and Alcohol and Drugs, they would remain hungry and sick.

And that is what we see in the world today in this so called “Nuclear age” or “Information based society”.

If you plan on taking over the world in a mere 25 years, you've got to do something about improving your public image and quick. Currently, atheisim is a dirty word in American society. Research in the American Sociological Review finds that among several groups listed, atheists are the group that Americans relate least to in terms of their vision of American society and are the group most likely to be mentioned as one that Americans would not want to have marry into their family.

Dr. Sam Harris is a founder of the New Atheism movement. He is quite aware of the stigma surrounding atheism and has even advocated that atheists no longer call themselves atheists. In fact, Dr. Harris has said concerning the label of atheist, "It's right next to child molester as a designation."

Sounds more like a condemnation of US society than atheists or atheism.

Then why do you theists waste so much time on us? If we were really such a small insignificant number we wouldn't be worth all the attention and focus from your lot.

The only reason we would be worth the time and effort from your lot is because you see your superstitious ways dying slowly and the ranks of non believers rising. We'll just sit back and enjoy your superstitious ways die slowly of it's self inflicted cancer.

Doesn't matter how you deny it, it is a standard fallacy of bifurcation you committed.
A little bit of research will show you that.
Why would you be concerned about genocide being something that is indefensible?
You are an atheist, you have no absolute moral standards to appeal to.
If one society decides to kill another for the sake of survival, why would you deem that wrong?
Why do you keep appealing to absolute moral standards?
We both know why.
You live in a universe created by God, which includes absolute moral standards.
Which makes sense as to why you appeal to them.
But knowing that you would have to acknowledge God if you recognise them, you will deny them, whilst using them.
Showing your inconsistency and revealing that you do really know the truth on this matter...
It is not a question of God existing or not, it is a question of Gods authority over you that you take the real issue with.
God never created anything,it exists not!
