Does the 9/11 and other conspiracies hurt atheist claims?
Now we all know about the 9/11 conspiracy. There are others such as Alqauda database, aaron ruso, the zeigeist movement, the American NWO But the main one may be the 9/11 conspiracy, in short, "America did 9/11 to go into the middle east to kill innocent people steal resources" and so on. Thus, all these conspiracy videos about NWO, illuminati and money appear, and then there are videos that state every radical islamic attack is false, and that the Al Qaueda (sp) and Taliban are all just boogeyman, non existent things, and America is killing no one." Such advocates of this are Mos Def.
However, no matter your views on the conspiracy, figure this. Many of us atheists will often argue why religion is bad, and perhaps the number one reason is the violence and safety issues. From the Spanish inquisition, to cults. I believe Richard Dawkins in several of his documentaries or books has actually stated that religion can instill an infallible courage to get people to believe in harming or killing someone, or killing themselves (and other people) for a God. Mainly, Dawkins (and several other atheists) have concluded that the living evidence of violence in religion exists even today in radical Islam.
However, if the claims made by conspiracy theorists, that there actually aren't any Taliban or Al Qaueda, and it is all made up by the media to make good Muslims look bad in the name of "American World conquest". Every other attack that had been credited to them from the UK subway bombings to the hotel in India. That would mean that there are no radical muslims, or anything about Muslims wanting to spread a Muslim empire.
Personally I see contradictions in this as American and other Ally soldiers are being killed by this so called "boogeyman"
In conclusion, it would mean that there is no violence in Islam and Dawkins and others have no say. IF their theory was correct.
