Religions and atheism, whether you deny it, are engaged in a territory dispute over what morals belong to whom and from where they originated.

Christians rip off the Hebrews, the Mormons rip off the Christians, and the atheists want to rip it all away from religion altogether.

This is not conducive to eventual world peace. The Nobel prize is not the Superbowl.

Does the antichrist really care about world peace?

Probably not.

But I care about the unintended ambition of atheists replacing God as the hope for utopia. Atheists do not care about being that hope, the main reason for them not deserving to be that hope.

Don't worry, it will never happen. People are hard-wired to be religious.

Utopia will only occur if and when the human race realizes it's just that, the HUMAN race. Not the Christian human race, not the Muslim human race, or any other <insert racio-religious label here> human race. When each life is as important to us as our own lives, only then will we have anything resembling utopia. As long as we choose to divide ourselves with religion, nationalism, politics, or any other artificial category, Utopia is a pipe dream and nothing else.

Altruistic behaviors existed long before any of the mainstream religions we have today
Meh!
