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.

This is the might of the small capitalist owners which rule about billions of human beings. In the nuclear age this may be to extinguish mankind. This is the reality.It is very real!
Atheism is growing, because knowledge is spreading.

In fact, an inverse relationship between education or intelligence and religion has been shown statistically.

The Sun is not a manufactured fission device.
The only fusion devices we have today are not usable nuclear reactors, they are for research purposes only.

The Sun fuses hydrogen nuclei INTO helium nuclei.

Huh ... correct!

You seem to be forgetting Hydrogen Bombs (aka fusion weapons). Very useful for vaporizing unfriendly governments.

It's interesting to note that Momma Nature has managed the occasional all-natural fission reactor as well.

Atheism is growing because "I don't know" is too dificult for some people to admit. Atheism is as dogmatic and narrow-minded most religions.
The claim to know an absolute one way or the other is insane. Maybe you should concern yourself less with god and move on to something of substance.

I'm no expert, but is there an 'oxymoron' somewhere in "supposed to give of their own free will"?
You know, even the loving and ever generous Muslims have a period of token generosity (to the poor) built into their Ramadan 'celebration'. I take the Christian admonitions in the same light. After all, even Jesus said "the poor will be with you always" or some-such. Doesn't sound like he had any long-term plans to fix the problem.
He appears to have been cursed with foresight. The poor are still here.

He said "reactors". That's why I carefully qualified my response to preempt your ill informed comebacks.

Name calling and vulgarities... I are Disappoint. I thought that you were better than that. Just further proof that the 'Science of Morality' is hogwash.

No, but I should've specifically said fusion reactors.

btw, as you have stated H-bombs are very useful for vaporising unfriendly governments, perhaps you could list the real life examples of this happening.
