It was just a passing thought.
But there have been cases in the past when this has happened. But not to Atheists but to believers of other Gods.
Roman conquest of the Celts. Resulted in the total destruction of the Celtic religion by killing all the druids.
The Spanish Inquisition: Destruction of Islam in Iberia.
Norwegian conversions: by Olaf I of Norway
I do wonder what the percentage of atheists, back in ancient times, in any given population, was. Maybe it was the same as today but they were smart enough to know to keep quiet.
Il est la nature. Il n'y a rien de surnaturel. C'est irréfutable. Par conséquent, il n'ya pas de divinité chrétienne ou islamique.

One question about Step. Are you saying they can or they can't draw the faith card?
I believe agnostic is officially not taking a stand .... an atheist can take a stand based on the overwhelming evidence ...which in this case is even beyond a reasonable doubt ( people are executed on less evidence). The atrheist can say there is no god or supernatural and still allow a statistically insignificant probability for error.
