Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Atheists in Power
State atheism in Albania was taken to an extreme during the totalitarian regime installed after World War II, when religions, identified as imports foreign to Albanian culture, were banned altogether. The Agrarian Reform Law of August 1945 nationalized most property of religious institutions, including the estates of monasteries, orders, and dioceses. Many clergy and believers were tried, tortured, and executed. All foreign Roman Catholic priests, monks, and nuns were expelled in 1946.
Lying piece of sh*t creationist with no proof of god. Atheism is a lack of belief in god and nothing more.

For yuks...

I couldn't find any.

There were dozens, if not hundreds, of hitler with the pope and other various clergy.

They all looked very happy together.

All you're doing is illustrating that Hitler was a megalomaniac and crappy Christian assisted by many other bad Christians that led an entire country of "good" Christians to do terrible things, or sit by and do little or nothing to stop him.

The deity belief/morals supposedly instilled by that belief did them no good whatsoever.
There are very few "exemplary" Christians.

Especially on topix.

<quoted text>HA !

The atheist declares his own victory?

Hitler was a lot like you atheists. He was born into a rigorous home, raised by religious parents, then turned his back on that religion and started idol ing himself.

Sound familiar?
That "declares his own victory" phrase is very familiar.

I see you doing that regularly.

I was thinking the same thing.

I read this article in the Daily Mail yesterday.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-230...

"Hell hath no fury like an atheist scorned"

He writes.. "A weaselly self-righteousness is now the hallmark of the celebrity unbeliever. Meanwhile, it is the Christian who nods diligently in any discussion, taking pains to reassure the atheists how very much he respects their point of view."

Hmm, do Christians really show respect for atheist PoV? I dont think so judging by this forum.

The writer goes on to argue that Hitler and Stalin were atheists. Its a very biased article against Atheists in my opinion.

The reality from my experience is that on topix and in the real world tolerant christians are a small minority.

Remember Obama with Joe the plumber?

Obama "looked" happy, too.

Funny how politicians pretend, isn't it?
