1) Challenge authority.
2) Learn to think logically and open mindedly.
3) Stay healthy and eat correctly.
4) Find something you are passionate about or couldn't imagine life without.
5) Don't just do something because others are doing it; do something based on what you believe is right for you to do.

1. Get scared sh!tless.
2. March into something impossible and succeed.
3. Travel.
4. If you're a people person, do something alone. If you're not, do something with others.
5. Sing.
: If you weren't new here, you'd know not to feed me such attention. This is like an orgasm in my brain right now. *hehe, my name is in a title, hehe* (http://www.debate.org...)

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

"The law is there to destroy evil under the constitutional government."
So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

1. Smack Freedo repeatedly until he gives up his obsession over a freak of nature with a voice that would make banshees cry out in horror
2. Repeat at your disrection

1. A drug of any kind (except for heroin, meth, oxy or anything else fairly ridiculous) at least once... it will influence the way you think about consciousness for those of you who are interested in psychology and/or philosophy... or even for those who aren't but who will be :p

2. Fall in love

3. Get and receive random acts of kindness

4. Take an active part in their government at some point; activism even on a small scale

5. Learn as much as possible (and not just from a text book)

I find it hard to believe you covered #5, as that seems nigh-impossible for a human. :D. Great job otherwise, though.

Depends how you view it: if you mean it in absolutes, then yes, it is nigh-impossible. But if you view it as an ongoing thing, as I do, then its easily accomplished. Just start thinking outside of the box.

Au contraire, I think quite a bit more people would be atheists, and the world a better place.

Stalin was worshiped like a God in Russia. Likewise, Kim jung il and his dead father, Kim ill sung, are practically worshiped like Gods in North Korea. Similar analogies can be drawn with the Khmer Rouge, mao, pol pot etc. Places and leaders like that are deeply religious, not rational.

I limited it down to direct murder for being Christian/Muslim ect. Thats about 32million.

Total deaths cause by Mao and Stalin are over 80million. With the people Mao choses to not help people in the Great Chinese Famine of the 1960s.

Deaths caused by Hitler, a Roman Catholic:
1941-1945 – Nazi Genocides – Germany – 11 million
11 million, by this one man.

Deaths caused by Christians:
1562-1598 – French Wars of Religion – France – 4 million
1095-1291 – Crusades to the Holy Land – Middle East, Spain, Africa – 1.5 million (This does include all sides of the conflict)
1184-c. 1860 – Various Christian Inquisitions – Europe – 17,500
30 Years War. 10,000
5,527,500.

Deaths caused by Muslims:
September 11, 2007 – Terrorist attacks (Muslim Jihadists) – USA – 5,000
1855-1877 – Panthay Rebellion (Muslims) – China – 12 million
12,005,000.

Deaths caused by various other religions:
1300s-1521 – Human Sacrifices (Aztecs) – Mexico – 1 million
1971 – Bangladesh Atrocities (Islamists) – East Pakistan – 3 million
4 Million, and please note these are just two of the many religious killings attributed to religion.

Deaths Caused by Atheists:
1975-1979 – Khmer Rouge Repression (communist atheists) – Cambodia – 3 million
3 Million.

This excludes The Great Leap forward and the Holodomor because they weren't caused in the name of atheism, but in the name of communism. The leaders at the time happened to be atheists. Did not result because of atheism, but was merely ruled by atheists at the time.
Also, Pol Pot killed in the name of communism, not atheism. I'll keep that in just to give you some sporting chance.
So, Around 32 Million because of Religion, and three million against atheism. Religion has killed 10x as much, mm?
