Re: Torture and death
Granny Magda says
It cheapens the suffering of those who have been tortured and murdered when you use their plight to score cheap points in some internet debate. Please, please just stop it. It is unworthy of you.
Maybe all those murders and tortures would not have happened if the perpetrators weren't atheists. Maybe these internet debates will sway people away from the religion of atheism and its central tenet, evolution.

“The link between belief and behavior raises the stakes considerably. Some propositions are so dangerous that it may be ethical to kill people for believing them. This may seem an extraordinary claim, but it merely enunciates an ordinary fact about the world in which we live” (Sam Harris-The End of Faith, p. 52).
