    The only thing that will send us back to the stone age is the H-bomb, no amount of human murders in 'God's' name can amount to what a nuclear war will do. Atheists save the world? You've already doomed it.

    Your one step closer to one more anti- something, and I won't even tell you what it is, because deep down, beyond that hate and anger, beyond that denial and defenses you have, you know it.

    A tear comes to my eye. May God have mercy on our souls. I am not going to comment on this topic.

    Please Jesus come back.

    Fascinating? It is the same self-righteous nonsense that you can read on The Science Forum every day, and it's rather poorly written too.

    I always thought of atheist zealotry as dangerous.

    Religious people are rude, delusional, irrational, deadly, dangerous, vicious people who are harmful to our species.

    In the wrong mind, such an idea may lead to mass murder.
    Whence comes this logic: no evidence = false?

    Theists welcome.

    Religious extremism and fundamentalism should be stopped. Encouraging dogmatic thinking and intolerance can lead to... well... Hell.

    Atheism useally encourage intellectual discourse. Questioning dogma, stupidity and intolerance. But I won't look away from the possibility that atheism might go to far at one point.

    I haven't yet watched the video I'll do that now however you forgot something, when scientist/wisemen made weapons, helped to advance warfare thoughtout history, were they all made solely for the benefit of the scientist/wiseman or was somebody else financing them or ordering them to do it.
    didn't the church have more control, over what when on in the past.

    and atheist aren't going to save the world, but the eradication of religion would help towards the world continuing.

    Atheist "movement"? I'm not so sure there is (or can be) such a thing. To have a "movement" you need organization, momentum, and substantial numbers. Atheists generally don't tend to congregate in large numbers and meet for the purpose of stating what they DON'T believe in. That sort of thing is left to the theists. Atheists mainly go about their day to day business without giving much thought to the subject, unless they are challenged on some political or social level. Theists, however, are encouraged (maybe even required) to congregate and worship in a "holy" location. Yes, there are web forums and such for the atheists, and there may even be some small group gatherings here and there, but atheists have nothing remotely approaching the organization and scale of modern religious "movements"!

    My guess is that the video that was posted was done by a lone atheist (anti-dogmatist) sitting at his computer. And although the points that were made were, for the most part, valid, I think that it could have gotten it's message across better without being so confrontational. Most "casually" religious folks are well-meaning and well-behaved. It is the fundamentalists/extremists that are cause for worry. Especially when that sort of thinking marries with politcs.

    Svwillmer, I enjoyed your cartoon! Thanks.

    It's interesting to note that you've somehow equated atheism to H-bombs, yet it was theists who dropped them? Curious... ?

    Your one step closer to one more anti- something, and I won't even tell you what it is, because deep down, beyond that hate and anger, beyond that denial and defenses you have, you know it.
    Anti-ignorance?

    Yes, do hide your head in the sand wailing to the myths and superstitions of the ignorant.
