some naturally are inclined to be benevolent, regardless of belief/knowledge of God's existence. And the heart is what matters.

We also know very well what happens, in crimes for instance. 'They have no concept of good and bad, they have no care for anyone but themselves (IF even themselves).' It is not apparent (to me) that total lack/dismissal/negation of religious beliefs is beneficial.

The proposition seems also to be slightly subjective in that the results of its past existence would carry on subtly, at least until tyrannical and radical eradication of any memory of it in anyone's lifetime came to pass. I would be willing to bet that if someone looked closely enough at biographies of some famous atheists they would still find in the woodpile how so and so was able to go to that academy to learn because a believer happened by when they had a flat and they were able to make their entry appointment; or this person could pursue their presentations to the scientific community because there was a believing volunteer who took care of their sick mother for them so that all the important stuff could be accomplished simultaneously without sacrifice to any of it, or other significant benefactor activities.
