Why dispense with Christianity or theism?

"Time to Move On: Religion Has Cost Too Much" by Vexen Crabtree (link updated 2010 Feb)

You miss the point: There have been many genocides commited without any support from relgious ideas. When people say that wars have been caused by religion, they don't mean that those involve merely happen to be religious. They mean that religious sentiments were part of the motivation.

Atheism has not supplied any incentive for war, or at the very least, has done so only in a tiny proportion of cases compared with religious motivations for bloodshed.

This nulls your counter-points.
