Cause Atheists like Stalin, Mao Zedong, and others never killed anyone..

Evil people kill people, not religion. They just use religion as an excuse sometimes, just as Stalin used Communism as an excuse, etc. People always look for a scapegoat to kill others.

Many religions have at one point believed in the "Kill the non-believers" ordeal. Including Christianity. Where many of religious texts stated it was okay to kill in the name of god providing that person was of a different faith. Even branches of Christianity still believe it today. Really it's a matter of letting go of the past in places like America, England, and etc.

Okay I'm probably one of the better versed people in Christian literature on Funnyjunk and I honestly have no idea what you are referencing to in the Bible, or what Christian groups you are talking about that exist today. I don't mean this as an insult btw, I'm just curious.

I still think my claim stands true. People will use something as a scapegoat to achieve whatever they want. Almost 95%(made up number) of the world basically believed in a religion until recent times, so the fact that religion has a bloody history is not surprising to me, as it was the easiest way to get people to do your evil acts for power and manipulate people.

I was agreeing with you on the scapegoat part, The branches today are present in the middle east, some areas of Africa, and etc. While they aren't officially considered christianity, their religion stemmed directly from it. Which makes it a different religion due to the altering in beliefs that has taken place, however being that it stemmed from christianity alot of people misinterpret their actions as that of christians. As for the past, the Salem witch trials was a pretty big ordeal, along with the "holy wars" and etc. Which is where my comment about the past came in. Sorry about poorly presented statement, I've been working all day and am extremely tired. I was simply agreeing with you and saying that I think a lot of it has to do with misinterpretations and the failure to recognize seprate religions and beliefs.

Ah gotcha. Yes, and in the cases of things like the Salem Witch Trials, sometimes people are just plain stupid. It is believed that some of the Witch Trials had political reasoning as well. Oh history...you sick sick thing.

That's all it is man, History. The sooner people start living in the present, the sooner we can move forward as a whole.

Quick, change your mind! Careful about saying anything against atheism... This is funnyjunk...

I think if anyone disagrees with the fact that evil people will use scapegoats to kill people and get what they want, they haven't looked at enough history.
