Einstein was an Agnostic Jew, he wasn't Atheist.

I have a tract on the alleged dying words of atheists and irreligious. About 4 I know are forgeries, and many I can't identify, so whether they even existed I don't know.

I believe in an afterlife but not in any hell. Ogre preachers.

You should throw Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, and Pol Pot in there as well

There are bad atheists and good atheists just as much as there are bad christians
And pretty much all bad christians but there might be a good one
I have no clue
I have yet to meet one

And I have yet to meet a bad christian, but I know lots and lots of good ones. Imagine a world without the church: Billions and billions of charity money lost forever

Imagine a world without religon:

We would have the twin towers
Millions of lives would not have been destroyed
Hundreds of wars would go down the drain

People donate through the church, not because of the church.  I'm an atheist and I donate.  It's sad how Christians only donate because a book tells them to, if that's what you're saying.

Some Christians do, some do not. Now imagine what would happen a decade or so after religion was wiped out

Dictators would come into power and establish personality cults

Lots more wars would happen in the name of political ideology to replace wars that happen because of religion

People have no concrete moral guidance, and no sense of faith or hope for humanity because they had lost their god, so they have nothing to turn to except the corrupt politicians causing the wars in the first place



Don't believe me? Just look to communism (which was founded by Karl Marx, one of the 'great' atheist minds you have up there), fascism, and imperialism throughout history. Tens of millions of deaths happened from communism alone and none of those genocides have had anything to do with religion.

Politics have nothing to do with this.
Dictators would not come into rule.  Intelligence is valued more in our society rather than rabid creationists.

Just because we don't worship some guy in the sky
Doesn't mean that we are "loosing faith in humanity".
I just want people to be good because they can, not because they were told.

Marxism was founded by Karl Marx.  Communism was a sort of innovation.  Marx was on the right track, but he didn't account for human corruption.  

-Twin towers killings
-Cambodian genocide
-Holocaust (Hitler was NOT an atheist, he was actually trying to kill them too)

Ext, ext.

"Marxism was founded by Karl Marx.  Communism was a sort of innovation.  Marx was on the right track, but he didn't account for human corruption."

Which is something religion does take into account. Interesting how communism, which doesn't address, has harbored three genocides with a combined death count of around 100 million, collected in just a few decades, and religions, which have also killed millions of people, but taking much longer, thousands of years.

Now, given those statistics, let's now imagine a world with communism as the replacement of religion:

Three hundred years pass, humanity goes extinct.

And Pol Pot was an atheist

Hitler was just a monster. I don't know what he was beside that. He killed anyone and everyone that stood in the way of his sick, aryan philosophy, and that included atheists, christians (probably), jews, gypsies, negros, communists, and probably even anyone within his own regime who had enough humanity within them to do some criticisms.

Church burnings and numerous killings by anti-religious, atheistic black metal musicians all through the 1900s and early 2000s
Che Guevara executions in La Cabana
Holdomor in the Ukraine
North Korea starvations and executions

etc., etc., etc.

And yes, politics does have to do with this, because you're making the point that there would be less war without religion when in fact they're wouldn't be because humanity just wars and wars and wars and looks for any excuse it can to continue wars. Getting rid of religion just means humans will find new excuses, and the evidence for that is that the collective deathcount for politics overall seems in fact to be much larger than the collective deathcount for religions.


"I just want people to be good because they can, not because they were told."
I agree. I think it's unfortunate some (perhaps even many) among the religious community seem to do good just because they want to go to heaven or don't want to burn in hell. You should do good because it's the right thing to do. Many religious however, I think do do good because it's the right thing to do. You think the saints got recognized because they were only interested in going to heaven? You think such selfless individuals would at all think about what they would get after they've devoted their lives to helping the poor and sick, something the liberal left seems to want to do all the time?

And when I said "no faith for humanity" I meant they have had nothing to turn toward and no sense of purpose in life, when in fact, millions are starving and hundreds executed by the atheist regimes I already told you about.

There are some atheist killers.  Obviously.  But there are more religious killers.

Here's the basics:
