Atheism is the worst religion in the world. Without it, the West, the family, and morality wouldn't be in turmoil.

inb4 not religion which is...

"a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith"

Atheism is really the best answer, so called "gnostics" are at least fun to talk to.

“Countries with a high percentage of nonbelievers are among the freest, most stable, best-educated, and healthiest nations on earth. When nations are ranked according to a human-development index, which measures such factors as life expectancy, literacy rates, and educational attainment, the five highest-ranked countries -- Norway, Sweden, Australia, Canada, and the Netherlands -- all have high degrees of nonbelief. Of the fifty countires at the bottom of the index, all are intensly religious. The nations with the highest homicide rates tend to be more religious; those with the greatest levels of gender equality are the least religious. These associations say nothing about whether atheism leads to positive social indicators or the other way around. But the idea that atheists are somehow less moral, honest, or trustworthy have been disproven by study after study.”-Greg Graffin

I don't believe that most self proclaimed atheists even really understand what atheism means.

A good way to see for yourself is to ask them to take all their statements about "God", and replace the word "God" with "The Ultimate Reality".

Somehow, this little trick magically reveals how void of good sense, reason. and ethics the position of atheism towards God is.

Everyone can know that God exists, it is written on the hearts of all.

They are also predominantly Christian nations. Secularists are also on average children or grandchildren of Christians, so the Christian culture is the cause of this phenomenon.

AKA Islam.

Norway Sweden

Both are countries that have been overwhelmed by Islamists. Secularism ironically, doesn't use common sense to defend itself, its people, or its culture. Education and common sense are two different concepts.

Atheism not only is a religion, but it's so much a religion that it has its own churches.

Liberalism is the worst religion. It worships the government, and will use violence to shut down any debate or alternative opinions.

Islam, because they consider a pedophile (Muhammad), a man who pioneered "thighing", to be the perfect man.

See thighing here:

All of them. A religion by itself doesn't make you a crazy fuck, being a crazy fuck and having a religion gives you an excuse to go do violent shit. And there are those in every religion.

Gnosticism

If your greatest faith is in your own understanding, your faith is really misplaced.

I've got an interesting one: I forgot its exact name but its principle is this:

-There is a god that is good

-there is an evil god

-they worship the evil one so he wont hurt them, they dont worship the good one because it would piss off the evil god

-and anymay why worship the good god since he wont hurt them?

Yasidism ?

How do you quantify the most egregious? Largest number of pedophile leaders? Most suicide bombers per capita? I consider it a tie for first place and distant second to those war mongering believers in the flying spaghetti monster.

Based on personal experience, Catholicism is full of hypocrisy and rapey Fathers. But the most egregious, vehemently violent religion is Islam.

1. Aisha and Muhammed

2. Violence towards women

3. Jihadists

5. The Qu'ran reinforces violence all throughout the book

- "The Quran contains at least 109 verses that speak of war with nonbelievers..."

So yea

Conservatism is by far the worst religion.

Conservatives worship big business, but they don't pray to it, instead they let it prey on the working class and the environment unchecked.

Conservatives focus on their own country and peoples' interests. Liberals focus on helping criminals and foreigners that they know nothing about, putting their children and families in danger.
