Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

Yes tolerance is important for us civilized people. Religion is fine as long as it doesn't infringe upon others.

Therein is the problem. Religion must infringe upon others or it will die. Tolerance or civilized actions only get in the way of religion.

Ohhhh...but of course, after all you are one of the "civilized" people as opposed to the rest humanity....the savage masses yearning to be "civilized" under the tutelage of the elite. We are not worthy to be in your presence...the wise and civilized secular sage know as "Giveme liberty", we thought you but a legend, but now we know you are a legend in your own mind.

In the words of the great philospher, Bugs Bunny, "What a maroon"!

Where would Western Civilization be if not for the influence of, good, bad, or ugly, religion in general, and Christianity in particular?

Now back to the Wise and Wonderful Wizard of Give me liberty.......give us a break...Madone!

Religion depends on the indoctrination of new followers or it will die.

Atheism only depends on the lack of belief and nothing else.

Well, for one, there'd be a lot less wars.
The Inquisition also would not have happened.
Quite a few more things as well.

Atheists do not have a belief system, they are just like uncontrolled hordes than wander on earth.

Their only unifying point is "There is no God and there is no religion".

But for that they have nothing in common.

They unite in negativity.

That is why they cannot bring any civlization, they cannot create any society.

And if they get to rule, they are extremely cruel and extremists in their rules.

Because they have no "belief system"....nothing to restrain their hands.

Muck you are the sheep. You are the ignorant followers of death. You have no individuality that is exclusively your own.

You may play with your make believe gods all you want you can have your delusions, but when you and others like you push your stupidity on others then you are to be looked down on as the scum (muck) you claim to be.

You and others like you have proven to be amoral.

Well at least atheists don't strap bombs to their chest and go on suicide missions like you Jewish wannabes do.
