Well... I don't really agree that it's about who started it. There are several factors included rather than just faith. Right now there's a lot talk about nuclear missiles in North Korea and potential war, but that's got nothing to do with faith and who started it all.

I never thought I would say this, but posts like these actually makes me agree with zlamous on one thing, that Atheists like you are driven by emotion rather than logic. You state that it's the biggest threat, without including other facts. You go and looks to ever "top Atheists" like the Amazing Atheist and others and agree with everything they say. I don't disagree that religions are flawed in today's society, but the only religions you ever point out to is Christianity and sometimes Islam too, but mostly you include Islam because you can find much more calls for violence in that one and links it to Christianity saying "religion is bad" while never looking at Buddhism, Hinduism or any other non-Western religion.

There's one mega Atheist out there that I agree with, and that is Pat Condell, because he says that he doesn't give a damn about what people believe in as long as it doesn't affect the daily lives of people in a negative way. I'm sure a lot of you Atheists would say "But I agree about that!", but then you go and shows post like this www.funnyjunk.com/funny_pictures/4508328/Douchebag+Yahweh/ even though no one in the Western day's society calls for doing anything like that! So even while people are just minding their buissnes, believing what they believe, many of you just have the need to tell them "you're believing in an evil god" even though they don't hurt anyone.

Sorry for the big rant, but this is something that's really been edging me for a long time and I needed to get it out.

TL;DR You don't have any proof that it's because how it all started is the biggest threat and why not let people believe what they want as long as it doesn't hurt anyone.

Implying most wars or conflicts between groups are based solely off of religious views. I mean many are but i wouldn't say religion would be the biggest threat of human existence.

Implying there'd be less war without religion, the fact of the matter is we just hate each other and we'll find any reason we can to fight, religion just gives us a convenient excuse.

Other than the Crusades I don't think there's as much religiously fueled war as you think OP

I've come across numerous atheists claim that ALL wars were caused by religion, it reminds me of a quote from a French philosopher in the 18th century "If the common people could ever be convinced to adopt atheism, it would become just as turbulent and violent as any faith".

It's people. People are the biggest threat to life on the planet. Get over the whole "Religion is bad" thing.

The biggest threat to human life is human life.

We multiply, progress, pollute destroy etc.

Science has greatly multiplied our destructive power btw.

The biggest threat is neither religion, nor oil, economic, dictatorship, slavery; even the explosive farts that generated by old lady's weak bowels next door that the nearby thug thought as a gunshot then they began shooting the nearby thug like crazy while holding their guns sideways like a gangsta, then a misfire accidentally hit the gun in a hand of a police who accidentally shoots that bottle of mayonaise near that 7-eleven near 95th street that makes that grumpy hobo with hobo-ish getup that tried to light his cigarettes slipped and then the burning flame of matches accidentally hit the nearby oil pump and BOOM!!! war started and **** goes down...it because our lack of understanding and tolerance toward those who different from us.

I'm an atheist, and I would definitely not say religion is the biggest threat. Religion is a means to an end. The biggest threat is the desire for power. Religion might be one way to achieve it, but there are many others as well.

Because all wars are started by religion and nothing else ever.

It's actually less than 10% of all wars.
