“Science flies people to the moon. Religion flies people into buildings”

“Radical theists blow people up; radical atheists are mean on the internet”
One atheist blogger
I’ve heard people refer to the crusades, witch-burning, inquisition, Galileo, terrorism, abortionist murderers as reasons why religion is dangerous and without it there would be a lot less death and suffering in the world.
The facts and figures tell a different story, however.
Below are three pie charts comparing democide (this includes genocide, politicide, and mass murder, but not war-dead) with war-dead, atheist regime murder and the Black Plague. The first is Pre 20th C, the second is Post 20th C and the third combines all of history.

The atrocities from religion are inexcusable. The death of one person is tragic, and these numbers are so huge they lose all meaning. What should be learnt from this that getting rid of religion will certainly not spell the end of war, genocide and political murder.
Dear American Newsmedia. The Pope is not an elected official to represent the people and their opinions and change cannon law as such. The Pope is the vicar of Christ who preserves 2,000 year old teachings. Just FYI.
“There was a profound contradiction in all of this, of course. The A-list of modern media decamped in Rome with cameras and microphones pointed toward the basilica to capture every word of the new pontiff, even as they declared with near magisterial authority that the Church is no longer relevant to the modern world.”—
Lemon:The juice of a lemon is natural bleach and helps in lightening the scars and blemishes of the skin. Lemons help cleanse the digestive track and allow food to digest properly. Lemons aid in the production of antibodies in the blood that attack invading microorganisms and prevent infection. Lemon is found to be anticarcinogenic, which can lower the rates of colon, prostate, and breast cancer. A cup of warm water with lemon and a pinch of salt can help with weight loss and lower cholesterol.
Carrot:A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.
Tomato:A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopene and are indeed pure heart and blood food.
Grapes:Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
Walnut:A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney beans:Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Avacado, pears and eggplant:Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Celery, bok choy, rhubarb:Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Figs:Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
Sweet potatoes:Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives:Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.
Citrus fruits:Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts. Oranges help maintain vision and great clear skin.
Onions and garlic:Onions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.
Strawberries:Can potentially fight against cancer and ageing.
Bananas:Yes, the stories are true, they give you energy!
Cherries:Calm your nervous system down.
Pineapples:Pineapples help fight arthritis.
Blueberries:Also protect your heart.
Peaches:Peaches are rich in potassium, fluoride and iron.
Kiwifruit:Increases bone mass.
Mangoes:Protect you from several kinds of cancers.
