You make it sound like Atheists have a large population.

The wisdom of this will be seen and will be picked up and practiced by other religions. Everyone has access to God regardless of the path they take.

I sure would like to see this happen. Reminds me of how we are supposed to be in/entering the Age of Aquarius where the sisterhood/brotherhood of man is a reality. Where everyone is respected regardless of religion or no religion. Hope that all the division sown in the previous age we're leaving will not be seen again.

I'd argue that if your mission appears to be to destroy everything in your path, and destroy the things that promote life on this planet...well, you're some other kind of being.
Unfortunately, that is a Human trait. It didn't matter when we were hunter-gatherers(1), but it has got more of a problem when we graduated from merely turning forest into dustbowls to having the technological ability to turn the land into garbage -tips, the seas into sewage and the air into fart-gas.

(1) though I watched a vid recently on how the Australian natives pretty much wiped out the Megafauna with hunting-by-fire tactics. And of course the extinction of the Dodo was blamed on them being too big and clumsy to live, when it was actually humans introducing animals that devoured their natural forage and their eggs that wiped them out.

Humans yes. Native to the planet no.
Humans are evolving into the more advanced lineage that seeded us on this planet. It is grand.

The Creative Source of all that is (for instance trillions of galaxies resplendent with life) is powered by love and benevolence. That's why it is said "God is love"

We (humankind on this planet at this time) are toddlers learning to play well with others using free choice to choose peace and solution instead of destruction and war. We are making great progress.

It is grand, I agree. But I fear that we may be like the s0- lucky son of a rich parent. Doen't know what to do with his riches or himself and trashes the lot and himself.
