More bollocks from you. That's why I prefer the term "non believer" to avoid your sort of smears and lies.

On two contentious positions, I will opt for something other than Wiki.
Like philosophy academics throughout history.
----------
Atheism, from the Greek a-theos ("no-god"), is the philosophical position that God doesn't exist. It is distinguished from agnosticism, the argument that it is impossible to know whether God exists or not (Academic American Encyclopedia).
Atheism, system of thought developed around the denial of God's existence. Atheism, so defined, first appeared during the Enlightenment, the age of reason (Random House Encyclopedia-1977).
Atheism is the doctrine that there is no God.(Oxford Companion to Philosophy-1995).
Atheism (Greek, a-[private prefix]+ theos, god) is the view that there is no divine being, no God (Dictionary of Philosophy, Thomas Mautner, Editor-1996).
Atheism is the belief that God doesn't exist (The World Book Encyclopedia-1991).
Atheism, commonly speaking, is the denial of God. Theism (from the Greek theos, God) is belief in or conceptualization of God, atheism is the rejection of such belief or conceptualization.In the ancient world atheism was rarely a clearly formulated position (Encyclopedia Americana-1990).
Atheism, the critique and denial of metaphysical beliefs in God or spiritual beings. Atheism is to be distinguished from agnosticism, which leaves open whether there is a god or not, professing to find the question unanswerable, for the atheist, the non-existence of god is a certainty (The New Encyclopedia Britannia-1993).
According to the most usual definition, an atheist is a person who maintains that there is no god…(rejects eccentric definitions of the word)(The Encyclopedia of Philosophy-1967).
Atheism is the doctrine that God does not exist, that belief in the existence of God is a false belief. The word God here refers to a divine being regarded as the independent creator of the world, a being superlatively powerful, wise and good (Encyclopedia of Religion-1987).
Atheism (Greek and Roman): Atheism is a dogmatic creed, consisting in the denial of every kind of supernatural power. Atheism has not often been seriously maintained at any period of civilized thought (Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics-Vol II).
Atheism denies the existence of deity (Funk and Wagnall's New Encyclopedia-Vol I).

Hitler's A bomb project went less well. Which disproves your smear.

Obviously, your premise is false since we have the A bomb.
Secondly, it doesn't matter what the population being eliminated was capable of, only what the regime doing the elimination thought to be true.

"One man – Charles Darwin – says:'In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals.' Another man – Adolf Hitler – says:'Let us kill all the Jews of Europe'.
Is there a connection?
Yes,obviously is the answer of the historical record and common sense."

Yes I have had this problem in the US, I also discovered that you have spray on cheese – that really boggled my mind.

I'll not go into details here, out of respect for various and asundry folk.
But go give it a look-- I found it kind of refreshing, really.
Not seen it before. Only 520 members? That’s astounding

Let me get this straight.

Since Hitler's nuclear program struggled, he could not have justified extinction of the Jews by Darwinism, because Jews are very smart, even though Hitler regarded them as inferior.

That's brilliant, Tinkling.

You're on the verge of winning me over.

Being a member of the Catholic Church does not make one a Christian.

If so, millions of Christians would not be Christians.

If so, it would be impossible to be a fake Christian if one's name was on the role.

If so, it would be an involuntary belief once on the roles.

Get it? "involuntary belief"?

That's called a self-contradiction.

As dumb as you are, I know you know better than what you are claiming.

Which makes you,...well,...never mind.

The term "non-believer" has no conflict with what I've said.

You are admitting I am right.

Really?

Dave is universally irrelevant?

Surely he's relevant in some way to someone.

I'll assume your statement is more of your mindless bull shit.
