Religion in power has a much worse record as demonstrated by the 100 years war, the cause of the dark ages, and lets not forgets it's most shining moment.....the inquisition!!!! Never has anyone gone to war under the banner of Atheism, Never has anyone killed over a Lack of belief. All of the people you are about to mention killed for reasons of power and control, not because of religion.

Amusing faith in nothing :-)
Atheists don't need FAITH, FAITH is the permission that religious people give to each other when actual evidence is non-existent. You ONLY require FAITH when trying to justify that which is only imagined. As an Atheists I have evidence for everything I believe in, can you say the same?

Nobody has ever killed in the name of atheism.

Its a lack of belief in god and nothing else.

Why don't you apologise for hitler being a catholic and killing jews because of his religious army?

Why can't you admit a simple event in history? Man up and face the truth cos that's the work of your *god* whether you like it or not.

Hey Septic, why don't you go ahead and prove that Hitler didn't renounce his religion....

You can't.

Hitler had religious parents, but he certainly wasn't.

Why don;t you prove your f*cking god your lying theist troll piece of sh*t.

Hitler was catholic and it said "In god we trust" on every single nazi belt.

You idiots can't even admit a glaring piece of evidence like this. What hope is there for you to remove the hateful verses about atheists in your bible.

"Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord."[36]
Hitler

"Secular schools can never be tolerated because such schools have no religious instruction, and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith."[97]

That's right you read that second quote correctly, you're ALL on hitler's side.

Come on child, describe your feelings, or have you just shown yourself to be a confused little boy, if you can't describe your feelings that prove a God?

HA HA !

Don't get all pissy, Septic....

The belt buckle in question did NOT say "in God we trust".... Just FYI.

Oh, and there's this:

"The National Reich Church of Germany categorically claims the exclusive right and the exclusive power to control all churches within the borders of the Reich: it declares these to be national churches of the German Reich.

"The National Church is determined to exterminate irrevocably...the strange and foreign Christian faiths imported into Germany in the ill-omened year 800...

"The National Church has no scribes, pastors, chaplains or priests, but National Reich orators are to speak in them.

"The National Church demands immediate cessation of the publishing and dissemination of the Bible in Germany...'"

"On the altars there must be nothing but 'Mein Kampf'(to the German nation and therefore to God the most sacred book) and to the left of the altar a sword.

"On the day of its foundation, the Christian Cross must be removed from all churches, cathedrals and chapels...and it must be superseded by the only unconquerable symbol, the swastika."

Derp.

Of course Hitler is gonna talk about The Lord. In the 1920's NOBODY got elected into politics without using God as a reference.

Hitler hated Christianity and all it represented. He hated Jews even more.

But I don't expect you to listen to reason...
