    First, find a spot of land, large enough to hold large armies, then gather all those who want to kill others in the name of religion and let them go at it. Give them every weapon at their disposal except nuclear bombs. When the killing is done and the winners emerge, kill the winners. The children left by those who died who haven't been indoctrinated into the belief that if you're not of their religion, you must die, then rehabilitate them to treat their fellow man as they themselves want to be treated.

    Now tell me why this wouldn't work.

    Author of the idea, GK.

    As much as I would love to see the end result just for giggles, if everyone REALLY wanted peace they would just stop fighting.

    What about atheists? They have been responsible for more deaths in the 20th century than any other group.

    We need to put the whole thing on TV then, so at least we can say we got something useful from religious nuts.

    Thing is, not all religious people are nuts and not all nuts are religious.

    That's not what I meant.

    The proposal is to put a certain brand of religious nuts (believe in my God or die types) into an arena and kill each other, I say put it live on national TV so that we can say we got something useful from those nuts. I'm not so gullible as to believe most religious people are religious nuts.

    They were militant communists, all good communists are atheists (comes with the loyalty to state above all else mantra).

    Unless you can prove they specifically killed those people over religion it doesn't count (unless I can point to every murderer who was a Christian regardless of motive).

    It's essentially the same argument as 'they listened to rock and roll, then killed someone therefore the rock and roll made them do it (or in this case they did it in the name of rock and roll)'.
