    As of the last time I argued about this with someone (on the side of "religion doesn't deter crime" btw), numerous studies had found that there was no link (whether positive or negative) between crime and religion. It doesn't seem to cause or deter criminal behavior.

    I would agree with that.

    Criminal behaviour will exist amongst human populations no matter what.

    Okay.. so tell me again why you're so worried about Christians going on killing sprees because of the promise of heaven?

    Only because we have rules.

    As soon as we get rid of all of those, the criminals disappear.

    I never stated that.

    Me and my atheistic self view murder as a HUGE deal, why? Because I understand that everyone's life is and will be once lived until their death permanently and irretrievably ends it.

    IC this has deteriorated into an anti-religion thread... specifically Christian.

    There's a flaw in your logic Chick. If they're heaven-believing Christians, then it follows they also believe in the ten commandments. Do you know what those are?

    And it's about fucking time someone made one.

    Overt rejection of religion is the only way we can ever get around the roadblock.

    I guarantee, if whatever is up there, or wherever, if anything, wanted to be thought about, it would have made itself known long ago.

    Whatever it is is probably an introvert, and is likely embarrassed by all our musing. It's quite rude that we're consonantly thinking about it. Why don't you all grow a conscience huh?

    True, but no rules = anarchy.

    Would/could there be a peaceful anarchy?
