So I was watching this video:

In the video she reads a letter from someone suggesting atheists just move to a different planet. My boyfriend and I jokingly agreed, 'Yes let's!' Then I thought about it more. What would happen to Earth if all the atheist, nonreligious, and logical people just up and left? Would the planet just go up in flames? would everyone kill each other? Or would there be some weird form of peace? Also, it sounds nice, but would we be happy if we all went off to our own planet?

 

Interesting thoughts...

I remember reading someone commenting on this sort of scenario. Here is one take Be careful what you wish for... 

Basically all of the most intelligent people who have lived and who are responsible for most of the scientific discoveries and innovations would not be here. Simply, the world would still be in the Iron Age or Bronze Age. Just look at the Middle East.
