I am not saying religions were always peaceful, but atheism beat them by a long shot in terms of violence.
Russia no longer persecutes religious people. Meanwhile wars between Christians and Muslims are still frequent.

Because those that have? Almost always become atheists in the end.
Of course-- since it is pretty clear that once around the racetrack is all anyone ever gets, and that there are no soul-thingies to preserve our memories after we die?
Technically speaking,**everyone** loses all faith when they die-- just as they lose all thought process and so on-- when the brain goes, so too does the person.
So you could say, that everyone becomes an atheist in the end.

True. It always made me laugh that religionists dismiss walking under ladders and witchcraft as superstition, but they can blather about 'Christ/Mohammed said' and the RC Church has a 'Chief exocist'. It's either hypocrisy or idiocy.

Jihad = crusade

Religion = superstition
Theology = mythology

Witchcraft was demonised by the church as it didn't conform to their control methods.
Many of the churches annual celebrations and events were deliberately timed to coincide with pagan celebrations, and therefore over shadow. Christmas is as finer example as any, it was only ever about control.

'WeAre' because I AM gives us that right. We are privileged because time science and place has favored some groups of people, made it difficult on others. The human mind has taken a long time to reach equality,fairness.'Equality's' still some ways off. MORE OF US WANT TO BE THE 'HAVES' than the 'HAVE NOTS'. EQUALITY NEEDS JUSTICE never mind law. We live as a 'civilized' nation UNDER GOD! I agree with MUQ as it's told as IT IS. I'm listening. You should, too.

Your stupidity lies in the fact that you don't realise you have no evidence of god. It is your poor education and understanding of science that makes you religious.

It almost like religious people have been sitting there all this time, thinking that the burden of proof was on atheists - due to stupidity. hope to it.
That is exactly what they expect of us, time and time again. They also expect science to prove to their satisfaction that the non-existent, is in fact non-existent. Yeah, science really should step up and spend beaucoup moolah, proving the absence of fairies and leprechauns too.

How can GOD be proven when HE's in control. The Blessed Mary apparition at Fatima is good proof for many, hey, but for others NOTHING is accepted nor will it ever. I

Witchcraft isn't real - The church was predjuced against single women with cats - religion has always been hateful and its mostly directed at women because of sexual ignorance.

Just by calling names, you will not prove your case.

In fact the reverse is true, these deniers of God have no proof or logic with them them.

Just pure stupidity and nothing else.

Its because you are a coward that you cannot produce any evidence of god, and ask Atheists to prove what is already concluded from established facts.

It is not the fault of Atheism that you did not educate yourself about science or evolution.

We live in the age of the internet and libraryies where you can educate yourself instead of ask Atheists stupid questions.

Science is BIG it takes a lot of time to study, but your arrogance aside and get a brain.

Not only does science measure and test, where religion fails to, science will measure by what degree religion has failed to accurately descirbe the universe.

Science allows us to throw out ridiculous concepts like omnipotence & other mad magic invented by religious liars.

Religion is frightened of science because it is based on observational evidence - and every religious liars know there is nothing to observe, when conducting religous deceit.

Witchcraft in the sense that most people view it, is no more real than religion. The witch finder general of the protestant and catholic reformations, persecuted and murdered hundreds of people across Europe for little more than practising homeopathic medicines or using basic scientific approaches to problems, Those people may be referred to as white witches.The black witches made effigies and stuck pins in them or cast spells, often to frighten or control people,, regardless, both were persecuted by the church.
If by chance you should find yourself in Boscastle Cornwall, you might find it interesting to visit the witch museum,, some of the exhibits are hundreds of years old, the proprietor has received several death threats over the years,, just goes to show how fear takes control of gullible superstitious or simple folks minds,, just like the church.
