You would be right..

Except that atheism is NOT a world-view. Other than that complete ad hominem, you are correct. It is not a world-view, not a theory, not a religion, not a philosophy. You don't believe in hundreds of deities, I simply don't believe in one more than you.

No crimes have ever been done because of atheism. Some atheists have committed crimes, of course (Stalin, Mao, Hitler were not atheists). But, you cannot say the same for religion, crimes have absolutely been done because of a religious drive.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
