I have to disagree with the above. Look at any nation that professed that there was no God (i.e., Russia, China) and see the number of their own citizens that were killed by the leaders of those countries. Without religion, mankind tends to do as wishes because of selfishness. Even those of us that consider ourselves to be "good Christians" still act out of selfishness. In my case especially, it is camera gear. With others, it's firearms.
