Come on man?!
You are just silly
Atheists (Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Castro, Guevara, Carlos the Jackal) and Pagans have done much worse. Don't confuse what man does with religion. Bottom line as the US becomes a more secular nation we have more moral problems.
I can't quite determine if you're a talented troll or actually so ignorant that it could cancer in fluffy baby kittens.
Did you just put "bad atheists" into google to come up with that list of Marxists? I say Marxists because Hitler was not
an atheist, please do not confuse vegetarianism with atheism.
Second, paganism is a religion, or rather is a general term for any religion that is not of the Abrahamic faiths, often applied to polytheistic religions. Please do not presume that the Abrahamic faiths are the only set of practices deemed religions. You will also find that I included pagan practices in that list which I posted.
As for "Atheists ... and Pagans have done much worse.
" what exactly is worse than rape, murder, mutilation, torture and war?
As for the moral compass that religion provides us, it seems to have consistently failed from the established Neolithic religions through to today, if religion is the moral panacea you propose it is, then why do religious people repeatedly commit such acts and why are such atrocities committed in the name of religion. The moral compass you described is a resounding failure. Saying that it's man's fault and not religion is a cop out, religion, according to you, is supposed to curtail man's violent urges, it simply doesn't.
