Hi Craig Weinberg 

An article in the American Journal of Psychiatry in 2004 suggested that 
atheists might have a higher suicide rate than theists.[10] According to 
William Bainbridge, atheism is common among people whose social obligations are 
weak and is also connected to lower fertility rates in some industrial 
nations.[11] Extended length of sobriety in alcohol recovery is related 
positively to higher levels of theistic belief, active community helping, and 
self-transcendence.[12] Some studies state that in developed countries, health, 
life expectancy, and other correlates of wealth, tend to be statistical 
predictors of a greater percentage of atheists, compared to countries with 
higher proportions of believers.[13][14] Multiple methodological problems have 
been identified with cross-national assessments of religiosity, secularity, and 
social health which undermine conclusive statements on religiosity and 
secularity in developed democracies. [15]"

"Sutcliffe, now known as Peter Coonan, murdered 13 women and attempted to kill 
seven others during a five-and-a-half year reign of terror across Yorkshire and 
Greater Manchester 1975 to 1981. He claimed he heard the voice of God, speaking 
from tombstones while he was working in a graveyard, telling him to kill 
prostitutes. "

"Albert Fish 1870 ? 1936.  Fish said he had killed around 23 people. He 
apparently had an array of ?isorders? and was judged to be ?isturbed but sane? 
by a psychiatrist prior to any convictions. Fish murdered then ate his victims, 
and at his trial professed that he heard the voice of God telling him to kill 
children. "

"Vince Li, who beheaded a fellow passenger aboard a Greyhound bus in Manitoba 
nearly four years ago, believed he was chosen by God to save people from an 
alien attack."

"On January 23, 1972 he branded his oldest daughter for running away. He was 
arrested for child abuse and found incompetent to stand trial. By mid-1974 he 
was constantly hearing voices from a floating head that followed him around. 
God also spoke to him and told him to kill young boys and sever their penises. 
Eager to comply, Joe enlisted his 13-year-old son, Michael, and proceeded to 
torture and murder a nine-year-old Puerto Rican youth. Their next victim was 
one of his own children, Joe Jr., who had previously accused him of abuse. For 
such a transgression the hapless youngster was found drowned in an abandoned 
building. "
