I can have a Dark Side too.
I wasn't sure if this would be the best thread but i figured it could be a philosophical question.

Often Atheist are accused of being immoral. Or the clam from Theist's that if they were Atheist they would just go on a killing spree. But obviously neither of these scenarios are true.

But what if they where?

What are some nefarious deeds have you thought of doing, but would never act out upon? Evil_monster

An idea I had today would to make a web sight called Pay for Pray. The pitch would be for a small monthly fee of $19.95. Me and a group of "highly qualified" Prayer specialist would pray on behalf of you.
Need the Chargers to win this season? We'll pray for that! Want to just sit down and eat a meal with out having to waist that 5 mins before you eat? We've got you covered!
In truth i'd just sit back and collect the money. After all prayer has the same odds of chance. All I would have to do it post it on creationist web sights or make flyers and just watch the money role in.

A much darker thought would be whipping out half the human race. Just so I don't have to deal with traffic anymore. Or to get on the rides at Disneyland faster. I think about how it could be beneficial to the planet if we just took this 7+ billion population of and cut it down to 3.5 billion. It would still be a lot of people. Society's would still continue. It just would be a lot less congested. Maybe we could get this pollution under control. Maybe less wars would be fought over territory's?

Mine would involve lots of women.

Won't happen though. Fortunately, I am happy with my wife but even if I wasn't, it is not like I could really find a woman to be debaucherous with. I totally lack any game.

I have wished some rather nasty fates on people who mistreat children, the elderly and/or animals.

Witnessing anything of the sort makes me mad as heck. Angry

RE: I can have a Dark Side too.
I'd tax everyone for going to church. Every time they walked through a church door I'd charge them 50 bucks.......the little kids too.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

The church already does that, although maybe not to that degree. There is heavy pressure to put something in the collection basket, or even at some churches, to "tithe" (contribute 10% of your income to the church). I believe some form of tithing is mandatory for Muslims, as well as many Christian denominations.

Doesn't stop people from going to church, though.

Damnnit, you're right. Angry Consider Two hundred dollar "fine" for entering any door in the church, three dollar fine for parking anywhere near a church.

There, that's better.
