Faith is an absence of logic. Through faith, people believe in the most ridiculous things. The following video should scare you if you are a decent human being. You should fear for your children, your loved ones, and for humanity.
Currently, christianity is basically harmless compared to muslims. If you are a christian, you may think that your faith is different than the faith of muslims. You are wrong. Your faith is the same, your interpretations of your religious texts are different. The passages are in the bible to kill, to mutilate, to destroy. Genocide was how christianity became so strong. It won the war of beliefs in Europe. It wouldn't take much to turn peaceful loving christians, into vicious, ruthless killers in the name of god. All it would take is trying times, and an evil leader. A person who bases their morals on logic and sound judgement will not falter. A person who bases their morals on what someone else tells them to do, will do horrific things in the name of good (or god).
Atheism is the only way to free humanity from the evils of religion.
