"People who check "None" for their religious affiliation are now nearly one in five Americans (19%)"
I see no reason to assume those people are atheists. Could be quite a lot of fundies and crazy religious people that would check none simply because they're not affiliated with a religious organization. And "none" would mean a-religious or not believing in organized religion, not not believing in god and you could still belong to a religion even though you are an atheist.
Like I said, I'm very confident in saying the world would be way better off without religion and other forms of dogma. But I support freedom of religion and freedom from religion. I respect their right to have those beliefs, but I don't respect the beliefs themselves.

Wisdom Of Bots
1, then tired, do not forget to smile; be anxious, but also pay attention to tone; no matter how tough, do not forget to adhere to; No matter how tired, but also love yourself.But we are jet modified and not faint-hearted of difficulties
It's not like there was a universal, absolute moral. What is moral and what is not depends on who you are and in what kind of situation you are in.
Share with us your idea of morality. What do you think it is? Where does it come from?
And how about breeding Starving Africans - there used to be 20million of them back in 1984 NOW there's 50million.
That is unethical, you don't feed starving stray dogs - thinking "That will fix the problem."
