How many died in the Holocaust, in Hitler's other achievements, in Stalin's Siberia, in the Second World War? In Vietnam and Cambodia? How many were killed through the hunger socialist mismanagement caused? Or that which free market capitalist imperialism brought upon us?

How many died in the Crusades, in the Spanish Inquisition, in Mohammed's wars of conquest??

Which is the lesser of two evils?
This is not a logically correct comparison. Religious wars are fought in the name of religion. that is their reason for attacking. All other wars cannot be said to be have been fought "because" of atheism, they were just wars. So the number of "other wars that arent because of religion where the people happen to be atheists" yes is many millions, but the actual argument which I thought was "wars that have been fought for the reason of atheism" is pretty low compared to wars fought because of religion.
