However in a way by arguing who created the world we are attempting to fight the people destroying it. For example as an atheist I feel religion causes a lot of damage in the world so I am trying to tell the theists how deluded they are so they will hopefully not take part in supporting the activities of their particular religion.
Agreed. My reply to people who ask how their religion affects me.
Granted, many people have died in the name of religion. But, by rejecting a moral code that is inherently above man (religion) you are putting the responsibility of defining right and wrong, good and evil into the hands of groups of men (governments). The sad tendency of humanity is to define ‘good’ as ‘whats convenient at the time’ ,and ‘evil’ as ‘whats inconvenient at the time.’ I’m not saying that there is one truth, but if everything is relative… who is justified in their actions?
