Unfortunately religion (or lack of it) can't influence this. Some people are just "bad", and religion can't change that. Why would you assume it could, when your next argument pretty much says it can't?
Yes they killed many. For political reasons though. Should we be only allowed to say that one type of dogma is bad?
I think it's fair to say that most atheists come to atheism from a perspective of science. And as such, no atheist would argue that TOotS is the one-true-word - we treat it like any scientific paper - as data that has some truths and some misinterpretations, but some very interesting observations that required more study. And there has been MUCH about TOotS that has been proved and disproved over the years.
No, atheism is simply a lack of blind faith. A lack of "just believing" for the sake of it. We tell people all the time it's not natural to believe in things that don't have any basis for belief (the tooth fairy, santa claus, the flying spaghetti monster) yet we blindly accept religion because the book is old.
You can't be a fundamental atheist. I'm sure as I can be that 100% of atheists would welcome some proof that there is a god that should be worshiped. And if such proof were presented there would be no more atheism. We're (pardon the pun) fundamentally not fundamentalists. We believe in proof before belief.
I'm sorry, but wasn't the earth created about 6000 years ago according the bible? Religion doesn't even begin to cover the scientific discoveries about the origins of the universe, so I don't see how you can get into a religious argument about it. Did "God" just decide in his infinite wisdom to omit that stuff from the Christian bible, or did the true authors of the bible simply have no concept of how far back the universe went?
I could go on. The whole documentary is a bizarre concoction of strawmen. I'm surprised it even got aired.
For anyone wanting to reply to this: only reply today if you agree to comment (good or bad) on one of my photographs tomorrow.
