Every religion has its barbarians, even atheism (Dawkins tends to skirt the line between being one of them.)

Islam is really no different. What is different is that it tends to be common in areas with a much lower literacy rate and no government separation. It becomes a tool to sway the masses. But if you remove Islam those looking for power would find an equally useful crutch.

Again, the problem is not Islam. It's weird that some think it is. Islam, like Christianity, has many different branches, many of which have never inspired violence.

Dawkins is an ass opinionated, but please don't call atheism a religion.

It is a religion in the way Dawkins treats it. He's no different than the Christians.

A religion, boiled down to its bare core, is a belief about the purpose and cause of the universe. Atheism, in many practices, is just that. I'm not saying all cases, most cases, or even many cases.

But Dawkins fanaticsism makes him come across as religious.
