Google knows what's really up.
For those who don't know, Google type-ahead suggestions come from a database of the most frequent searches beginning with the letters or phrase that you have typed already into the search box. I'd like to submit the image below as a study in contrast to the people who continually say that atheists are the hateful ones, that atheists will eventually round up believers, and that people of faith mostly just want to live and let live...

3. religious people should never support wars
religious people should always forgive

8. I help run a site that sells rugs,
so I'm glad to see that trend, but highly surprised that "darkstar3" shows up as much as it does. It's almost like I have stalkers...

9. Astonishing, and abhorrent that threads I have started look like these
answers a day or so later.

What the heck does any religion give people other than a sense of moral superiority?
