My point is, there has been a lot of violence carried out by religious followers. Not only that, but it is done in the name of their religion, in the name of God. All violence carried out by atheists has not been in the name of atheism. And don't go blaming misinterpretation of holy texts for this violence, because I will tear apart every major holy text that has ever been written. The Qur'an, The Bible, The Hadith, whatever, you want divinely justified evil and violence, I'll give it to you. Ignorance is bliss? I guess you didn't read the Old Testament. Just because good has been in the name of religion doesn't make it any more valid or make up for its corruptions. I absolutely love, absolutely love, how any religious follower will jump at the chance to claim all good acts and lucky occurrences as miracles, God's will, the work of the almighty. As soon as anything unfortunate happens, it's because God works in mysterious ways.
