So want to know what everyone thinks
I only believe in my own consciousness.
don't invoke religious wars to support your disbelief in god. God can still exis even though some crackheads use religion to justify their rebellion against what their religion teaches. Please, please, cut that out. So lets get back to reasonable diolouge.
Religion seems to form itself out of need throughout history. People need an explanation for the phenomena around them. People do not create religion, religion forms itself.
Now, this of course doesn't discredit any single religion.
Owing to their reluctance to explicitly mention any form of deity when discussing their faith, it is perceived by many that Atheism is in fact the lack of a belief in God. In reality Atheists just think that the goddess Athe is too busy helping embryos to develop, pushing the Earth around the sun and keeping all physical constants at the right value to worry about “sins” of individual humans (especially since there's about 6.5 billion humans on Earth right now). For instance if a Christian man stares at the cleavage of a woman on a bus for more than 2 seconds he will flatter himself by believing that god has acknowledged something so trivial and that God really cares about it.
Every step back a step foward.
Every failure an extra opportunity for success.
Every day of defeat a victory!

The majority of wars in which religion is believed to have been the 'main' factor were really driven by other factors, religion used as a unifying principle in order to rally support. If not religion, other things would have been used. In further discourse, distinguish between wars that are actually caused by religion and ones in which religion was invoked.
absolutely correct, even though from what i know, the position you take on various political issues are contrary to your gods teaching, especially if you are a roman catholic
the crusades is a perfect example of the kind of war you spoke of
