    "If we all became atheists tomorrow, would the world suddenly become a better place?"
    That is a bad anti-atheism argument, but it is a good anti-atheist argument, depending on the atheist, as some atheists actually do, like Dawkins, push the view that religion is the primary cause of many of the world's problems, especially war.

    "The soviet union's atheist regime killed 20 million"
    Same thing here. This does not prove atheism is bad, it proves that those, like Dawkins, who claim that belief in God is worse than atheism are smoking crack.

    No, atheism is simply a lack of blind faith
    Atheism has two distinct meanings, and in the U.S., it more commonly means -- in my long experience here -- belief in no God, instead of what I am told is more common in the UK, which is lack of belief. This is a perfectly legitimate criticism of atheism in the first sense.

    I'm sorry, but wasn't the earth created about 6000 years ago according the bible?
    No. That is an extrapolation based on an interpretation.
