    GENIUS is a chilling movie based on the life and tragic murder of John Lennon. It’s chilling because it reveals what people will do for money. There are ordinary people out there who would kill you. All they need is the right amount of money and the belief that they won’t get caught.

    "Genius" (Movie) - What was the real cause of John Lennon’s death?

    We all are sinners, bro.

    says who? Some guy or Jesus?

    Are you god?

    Luke 19:39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!"

    I am making a joke, please forgive my funny mood.

    I don't think people are in general less dangerous than one another, we're all infected with Original Sin to the bones, or as St. Thomas says "made of spoiled matter." Believers in Jesus and those who do not believe in Him can both commit murder for the right amount of money.

    There is no connection between atheists and who will kill who for money.
    Why the constant harasment of atheists?

    But I am talking about large numbers, about statistics, not of individuals.

    I am not enemy of atheists, but of sin.

    Do you think all atheists are sinners?

    How many atheists have flown planes into buildings; detonated bombs at arenas in the name of their ideology?

    The first one is very rare so I doubt any (really the overwhelming majority of humans who have existed have not) since atheists are a minority (I think, last time I checked they were). The second probably quite a few (although still a minority of the atheist population throughout history), for the lack of belief in deities does not preclude political ideologies. Politics being one of the spheres of life in my opinion (and manifestly in many others, considering they have done the following) worth dying and even killing over at times.

    It may be true that most of us act against our conscience at some time, but to be a sinner, you have to believe that God noticed and God was offended.

    If you don't believe that then you're not a sinner, just a wrongdoer.

    I've never heard of atheists starting a war to promote Atheism. Thankfully, Christians seem to have gotten over starting wars and killing people to promote their religion.

    I'm not going to watch a film just to get a reference. Where were the statistics from? Where's the actual study?

    Do you have a timestamp? It's produced by Ray Comfort so I won't lie I do not expect much of anything.

    Fortunately, they are few in number compared to those who would not kill anyone for any amount of money.

    Unfortunately, though, a lot of people will let someone else do the killing so long as they get their share of the money.

    Atheists are in the majority in the UK - something like 54%
    Flying planes into buildings may be rare but it happened and it wasn't an atheist.
    Atheists don't harass distressed people outside family planning clinics.

    Atheists I'm sure do bad things but not in the name of non-belief.
    Fact there are more religious people in jail than non-believers and that is true if you take a proportion of the population.

    He's done a lot of clownish things and that sounds like something he'd do so probably yes. Speaking of which I'm having banana pancakes today, the atheist's nightmare.

    Some even do it for no money and even when they know they will be caught. Watch out for them, bro. :oops:
