we know that religion has caused destruction by wars since origion of religions because religions were in power.as long as churches were powerful christians were fighting never ending battles.they were fighting who ever opposed their ideas..
as now churches have lost their power but still muslim mosques and mullah have power,so we see muslims fighting everyone.
but how we know that when atheism will prevail the earth,there will be no fights against religious people.there will be no wars against religious people? how can we know that atheism will not become another powerful idea which will not end up killing every other idea opposing it??
opposing ideology or belief is right but i have seen atheist people on atheist republic page become douchebag about how they are mentally superior to religious people.i have seen hatred toward religious people.but i wonder,how will we manage to control this hatred or Superiority complex from being our motive for killing religious people???
i wonder what if after thousand years,atheism become another killing motive,i wonder what if we start wars just like religious people but only difference will be lack of belief between us and them....

Since none of us is able to see into the future, it's impossible to answer your question.
However, you said, "how can we know that atheism will not become another powerful idea which will not end up killing every other idea opposing it??"
Since atheism is nothing more than the lack of belief in god(s), it can never become a 'powerful idea'.
ex-Muslim -I am intellectually superior than people who believe in Adam and Eve and the talking snake. I am intellectually superior than Muslims who believe they will go to heaven if they kill(or behead) enough infidels and enjoy eternity with 72 or 73 virgins. I laugh at stupid religious people. I ridicule Muslims. I insult Christians who believe Jesus walked on water and was born a virgin(Mary). I have contempt for Jews who think they are the chosen people and God(the burning bush) gave Moses the ten commandments. Mostly I am relatively "benign" in my "belittling" and condemnation of believers in Stupid things(God). But once in a while I would like to punch them in the face or kick them in the balls. Maybe in a thousand years I would want to kill them and wipe them off the face of the earth. But hopefully in a thousand years God would long be buried and we would not have to kill them. Maybe in a thousand years human beings would evolve and be loving and peaceful or kill each other about other things(Nationalism). Most likely in a thousand years there would be no religion, countries, prejudice, racism, disease, draughts, floods, earthquakes, cancer, mosquitos, rats, fish, lions and tigers, monkeys or human beings as either human beings would long long long ago destroyed "everything" through war or killing the environment. or God would "kill" man and everything else because of Adam and Eve and sin.
Public information announcement(from The Pragmatic):
"fred,k" is actually the infamous troll of the Atheist Republic forum.
Generally referred to as "Kenny", has been banned many times under different names.
Previously known aliases include: "Kenny Schweiger", "Kenny", "myself", "alleycat", "richardd", "Christopher", "marken", "punkin", "amber", "Simon".
Claims to be an atheist. But he has a fondness for using "sarcasm", even though no one ever gets his sarcasm and he has been told this many times, he keeps posting such deceiving comments.
He seems obsessed with religions, creationists and the stupidity of Fox News, Bill O'Reilly, Joel Osteen, Ted Cruz, Sean Hannity, Donald Trump, Vanna White, Sarah Palin, etc.
This announcement will be posted whenever he spams, agitates, confuses or flies of the handle.
Also, he finds these announcements 'boring'.
EDIT: It is best if he is just ignored until a method to remove him completely is found.
Jeff--Love and kisses. I miss your picture. You looked so profoundly serious and intelligent.. Ok maybe serious but not so intelligent. The only time you had a sense of humor was when you told jokes ---you were even funny. Even your profile is -like way over the top. With all the accomplishments in your profile it would seem your the smartest person in the world. Or maybe you just wanted everyone to think so. Lighten up--maybe tell more jokes- . Do you really want to ban me again. That says more about you than anything I say in satire or humor .You tolerate all the creationists who believe in Adam and Eve and the talking snakes. Even Muslims who believe DEATH to those who leave the religion or STONING TO DEATH Adulterers(woman) or MURDERING infidels or TORTURING homosexuals. But you want to ban me for making fun of them in humor exaggeration and satire. Jeff-you lack of empathy and fog words of meaningless intellectual rhetoric is often a bunch of bullshit. All I try to do is be funny. But you can't understand that because you have no sense of humor. God Bless
ahAAAA!!! so you are amber!!!! =D
"but how we know that when atheism will prevail the earth,there will be no fights against religious people."
If there will be fights against religious people, it will not be because of atheism.
Atheism, is the lack of belief, it is the neutral position you started with when you were a baby, before you were forced into a religion.
"there will be no wars against religious people?"
"how can we know that atheism will not become another powerful idea which will not end up killing every other idea opposing it?"
atheism is not an idea, but a state of being.
You are an atheist in most of the existing religions, a christian is an atheist in all the other theistic religions except of one.
Being an atheist says nothing about you except that you lack belief in the theistic claim.
Love the "God Bless"
