      People who still believe in a god or gods are the reason we still have wars, poverty, famine, and disease.

      Ummmm, WTF? That's pretty biased if you ask me. Let's take a look:

      - wars: Ok, so religion can be an instigating factor, but there are plenty of other things that can cause a war.
      - poverty: Why? Alright, so some churches get money from their followers, but at the most that's only going to make the followers poor, not anyone else.
      - famine: What? No idea where you're coming from on this one. Deliberate fasting isn't famine by any means, if that's what you're thinking of.
      - disease: Why? Refusal to research cures? Belief that if you get sick it's God's will? I don't see that religion has a big impact on disease either way.

      And besides, some (certainly not all, but definately some) religious people spend much of their lives trying to help alleviate those very problems.

      Yes, it's very biased - and with good reason. Religion is a holdover from an older time in human progression. It holds us back and prevents progress. Were it not for certain religions and traditions, we could have the technology to destroy the largest majority of the problems I mentioned.

      I also have no doubt that we would also, for the most part, have eliminated hatred.

      Also, all the most loving, intelligent people I know are all non-religious. All the assholes are Christian (though not all Christians are assholes).
