    Lolwut?
    Hitler wasn't an atheist.
    I suggest you read Mein Kompf.
    that is awfully strange, because socialism is not atheism. I am a proud non religious person, and I believe that capitalism is the best system of government.
    And loyal to God, I seriously lol'd at that. I guess you will stone me to death since I did some work on the holy day?

    And yet that's an issue of corruption, not religion. Galileo was a Christian as were almost all our great scientists and thinkers.[/ Honestly, if you oppose religion for starting wars, religion should be the least of your concern. Atheism and secularism have killed, tortured, and exterminated more people in less than a century than Christianity in thousands of years The worst Christians have sadly done, the Inquisition for instance, is nothing compared to the atheistic bloodshed of the worst tyrants in history.
    But like I said before, it wasn't because they were atheist. They were communist, socialist, or any other flawed system of government.
    FYI, Galileo was only Christian because no other methods were known. No one knows what they might have been if they knew about molecular biology, abiogenesis, or evolution. What did they have back then? Almost nothing, apart from a Bible in their hand.

    The pursuit of knowledge is the only thing that I care about, and there is little that I care for as long as the knowledge is gained, depending on the amount. I'm not trying to justify what they have done, but there are much more atheists finding cures for your diseases to help mankind then the ones that hinder it.

    First off, the last link was 9 year outdated. Regardless Those countries all have variables.
    Fair enough, I would like for you to point me in the most recent graph of crime rates over the whole world.
    Quote:
    Those Europeans however have smaller populations than us (we have over 300 million people). England for instance, while secular, has seen a huge increase in crime over the years. In proportion to us, they're not that different.
    To avoid that, people make tests per capita to avoid any claims like that. When making a scientific chart, do you change every variable, or just one?

    Quote:
    But let's look at the ultimate secularist states- Cuba, China, North Korea, Vietnam, and Laos. Do you think an atheistic, Communist regime willing to murder millions of its own people to maintain power, is going to have a high crime rate? No, they're slaves to the state, and know no God but their rulers. That's the end result of secularism. When God goes, anything does.
    But the fact that they aren't religious doesn't mean that they are evil. I'll very well admit that I am glad that Kim Jong Il was reported to have a rare case of cancer, because he was really corrupt. There were also good secularist leaders, as well as good Christian and bad Christian leaders. Now I would say Thomas Jefferson, but his multiple insults to Christianity as a whole don't necessarily mean that he isn't a Christian.

    Quote:
    That's also another point though- the freest nation has more crime than the least free. Why? Because we offer choice and free will, and the North Koreans for example offer obedience or death. So you made a good attempt at finding a correlation between religion and crime, but I'm afraid it doesn't work. I suggest learning about causation vs correlation.
    Not necessarily. There is actually not that much correlation going on because I see communist areas both at the top and the bottom. Even though the US is fairly distant from the top, I also see a lot of other free countries well below it.

    If you do want more though, I did hear that Louisiana has one of the highest crime rates in all of America. It is also a very conservative area and the test rankings are almost last(44th in the nation), with liberal Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut dominating every other state.(I do have sources, but I don't know if you would call them as accurate as, say, the FBI reports, even though deliberately lying is low.)
    >Here< is the chart made by the FBI about the crime rates, and the more liberal areas generally have less crime overall.

    I have a personal vendetta against religion myself since it inspired destruction of scientific advancement for centuries, such as the Catholic church jailing Galileo for claiming a round Earth, burning down the Alexandria library(thus destroying history as well), and causing many unneeded wars, among other things that it was at least partly responsible for.
    And Correlation=/= causation doesn't always work. Even though you are correct, this information cannot be just put away and not treated seriously.

    Uh, unless wanting to make Christianity a state religion makes you a better person...

    But lol @ giving up Darwinistic beliefs. Because you know. Darwin was sooooooo wrong about evolution.

    Crass remarks are what I do. :B

    The only reason I'm so anti religion is because I was exactly like you. Republican. Protestant. Taught Sunday School for 5 years. But like once I actually woke up to reality by travelling around the world and realizing that the world doesn't eat breath and sleep christianity yet still gets along fine... then I actually started applying logic to the Bible. And started realizing it wasn't all it was cracked up to be. And that I needed to stop being afraid of getting sent to some imaginary hell if I didn't believe.

    The bible contains nice snippets of feel good rules to live by and also a lot of dark imagery. In the end though it's about as useful as Aesop's Fables.

    And wow, I'll be damned if I'm not blind after writing all this. I can't even continue without my eyes hurting.

    Um, uh, no. I'm not going to waste my time arguing a silly point. You can claim the world is flat, but I don't think many people would waste their time trying to get you to believe it's actually round.

    But if that's your definition of winning, more power to ya soldier.

    Heck, look at the godless societies today and how much suffering they're caused.
    I just thought that I would respond to this.
    You are aware that religion halted the advance of science for hundreds of years, right?
    And the less religious countries are, the less crime they have. If you take a look at Germany, France, Japan, and the Netherlands, they will have significantly less crime overall. The most violent countries(Colombia, South Africa, Jamaica, Venezuela), however, are predominantly Christian(or a denomination.)
    This, this, this, and this.
    And here is the graph that I was talking about.
    Just thought I'd mention it.

    He's probably leagues more conservative than a candidate I can hope for over here. Being in Canada, the average conservative is still a tad more liberal than your typical Blue Dog. The last Conservative party here that was...conservative (called Canadian Alliance) merged with a moderately conservative party to make the current Conservative Party of Canada. The older one resembled the Republican Party and the newly merged one is kinda like Mark Pryor. I like the old party better.
    Corzine is the shining example of what a truly liberal administration would do to a healthy establishment. I don't live in New Jersey, but I hope that Christie does a good job and spread the good news of conservatism.

    So what do you think of Chris Christie? Does he have what it takes to clean up Corzine's mess?

    Well, I'm a part of the last few Gen Y, so that's why I made a distinction. I live in a pretty liberal part of Canada, but the kids here (or at least the extreme left believers) usually don't indulge in political activism, so I don't hear much about it. However, if I were to say negative things about communism, the teacher would have to tell me to "respect" and then after class a couple of people would jump me for sure :/

    After seeing so many communists/China supporters/Taiwan-USA-Israel haters at my school, I'm not banking on "lesson learned" for my generation.

    My maternal family were businessmen, and paternal family haberdashers; both got their fortune absorbed by the communist regime in Vietnam. I lived for 9 years not knowing what religion I was (I'm Christian)...so yeah, I have a vendetta on crooked leftist politics. Being the child of the Vietnam War also helped me to appreciate the Bush international policies xD;

    At times, it feels like I'm the only conservative/right wing oriented person around this place. So you're a military personnel who's a Pokemon fan? All the more admirable xD

    @.@ Well at least there are a lot of benefits. I would have chose Air Force or Navy but dropped the idea in 9th Grade. I just want to experience dorm life lol.

    That's good. XD

    Well maybe but the whole casualty rate would make it an unpopular war. =/
