I know that a lot of religious people think that most atheists are angry, but the truth is we know that this is our one and only life so most try to live it the best we can. Life is not a dress rehearsal for the big show. Atheists haven't caused as much harm as religious people by a long shot. No wars were ever started in the name of atheism, but they have in the name of god (any god). I have heard people say that Stalin and Hitler were atheists, but if you look at any of their writings, insignia, etc it has god on it. These were truly terrible people who did more harm than we can even begin to imagine. Some people get so over zealous in their enthusiasm to rid the world of religion so we can live in peace for humanities sake that they lose their true purpose. That is very sad. I think that if people stepped back and looked at the big picture of history, they would see that more harm comes out of religion than any good. I agree that there are a few sayings from the bible that are benificial, but these sayings can be found in any scripture from any religion and are just fundamental to the survival of all creatures. (Do unto others, don't kill, don't steal, etc). I just wish that religion was non existant so humanity could get on with bettering itself instead of fighting over who has the bigger better god. Only then can we truly be at peace and help each other when it's needed most. For humanities sake.

"Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord."~Adolf Hitler
