Atheists have long criticised devout followers of faith. But now it seems Atheism is stealing from that very religious tradition by erecting a temple of worship.
What do you think about the first ...
They should not start a church or temple, even though they wouldn't worship any god it still sounds like hypocrisy.
Atheists in Germany murdered 6 million Jews, 3.45 million Gypsies, an unknown number of Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh-Day Adventists, Mormons, Catholics, and Lutherans, because they would not follow after an atheist named Hitler.
At least another 2.35 million disabled persons were tortured to death in Action T4, one of Hitler's atheist "euthanasia" programs. There were other pogroms but you get the picture.
Atheists in the former Soviet Union murdered over 40 million innocent persons between 1918 and 1991, in cold blood, because they would not become atheists. There is no record of any of these deaths.
Communists are great at forcing propaganda on people if that propaganda will cause violence. They are also great at burying the evidence and using threats of more murders to keep the people living under silent terror.
Atheists in China murdered over 56 million persons in cold blood because they would not become atheists. By now, the numbers become meaningless. What if you are the next one to be eliminated because the atheist government believes you are not an atheist, therefore, subject to extrajudicial killing?
The list is endless and bloody. Where there is atheism, there are lies, propaganda, brainwashing, and most undeniably, wholesale murders -- all in the name of atheism.
Those that destroyed life were many different nefarious humans, some people who have studied the neglect of humanity, I have studied the Holocaust for many readings and interviews. There are types of words used to describe the murderers. I call them murderers, there may have been Atheist who murdered, you define Atheist wrong, Atheist are denying a religion andGod. There is not existence of any God to Atheist. I have not met God, felt any spiritual feelings about religion! I have been Atheist as far as my memories allow me to remember, at 1 and 6 months of age. I also have never murdered any humans. I love Humanity . We have no use for religious chapels or church. I have many friends who are Atheist and feel satisfied relief from stories of God and Hell and enjoy being around humans without religious atonement! It is understandable, I prefer sitting in the Grass.
Hitler wasnt an atheist, he considered Jesus to be an excellent role model for Germans. In fact, Hitlers first treaty pact was with the Holy See under Pius XI. Had the church threatened excommunication of all Catholics servimg the 3rd Reich, it dont think we would have seen a european war.
Its true that Stalin was an atheist, but that wasnt his religion, atheism is a lack of religion. Stalins religion was Power and was exascerbated by his extreme paranoia. Among so many who died in the gulags were atheists they were the intellectuals. This was merely one more power he was fighting in his desire for total control of the USSR. The country itself wasnt even communist. It was marxism-leninism.
Whether these men were reiligious or not has nothing to do with th fact tht they werebatshit crazy. History is full of such types. As an atheist and humanist, I believe tjat we only have each other, we owe each other a certain amount of dignity and freedom and until we accept that duty is to each other and not to a non-existant deity, we will continue to see atrocities. Serbia, Sarajevo, Sudan, Iraq and other were driven by cultural and religious difrences. They were not caused by rational men who refused to see the "other", the enemy. It was a result of the same prejudices that have driven humanity.
More worrisome to me is what happens if they decide that you have the wrong religion. They dont require anything more than being convinced that they are doing Gods will. And you cant prove otherwise. Consider, Northern Europe is essentially atheist they also hav the highest standards of living and lowest raytea of violence and crime in the world, all while offering their citizenry freedom and reapect
