If it wasn’t for rationality, skepticism, and non-believers we’d probably still be setting fire to our neighbors for casting spells on us.

Since the primary motive of the evil is disguise, one of the places evil people are most likely to be found is within the church. What better way to conceal one’s evil from oneself, as well as from others, than to be a deacon or some other highly visible form of Christian within our culture? … I do not mean to imply that the evil are anything other than a small minority among the religious or that the religious motives of most people are in any way spurious. I mean only that evil people tend to gravitate toward piety for the disguise and concealment it can offer them.

I’m not quite sure I ever understand how this question can be logical. How can someone be inspired to do something because of a lack of belief? It doesn’t make sense. Believing in God doesn’t prevent sociopaths from being sociopaths. Believing in God rarely prevents bad people from doing bad things, if it does it is only because of fear. Atheists aren’t afraid of God, but a logical Atheists realizes there would be absolutely no purpose in killing someone in the name of nothing. Logical Atheists are able to have the fear of earthly punishment be enough to deter them from most things. An Atheist doesn’t want to give up the only live they have in the name of….nothing! “If God isn’t real, all things are permissible” only makes sense to a religious person who has been so cowed into fear and submission that they believe being good without God is impossible.
