Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

<quoted text>Really! They were all atheists? They were all humans. They were all Americans. They all had hair. They all were wearing shoes. What other invalid associations do you care to make? Please tell me where you go to find the religious preferences of the various celebrities. Yeah ... mass murderers are celebrities of sorts and chasing their 15 minutes of fame, just like some of your high profile bible thumpers. Some of them, anyways. I lack your ability to draw inferences, something you have developed into some kind of super-power! You're like a 'Superman' of bad logic!! Be careful!!! Knowledge and information is your Kryptonite and it's literally everywhere.
I wouldn't bother treating him like he's rational, moral, or even logical.
He's quite obviously insane, though willingly.
I treat him as such.

<quoted text>We take 'comfort' in it. It makes us 'feel good' to know we are doing something against ignorance and superstition. If someone was preaching "Shmaltz" at you or the god "Shmaltz" was giving you lists of things you had to swallow to get to his version of heaven (or hell)... you might feel the need. Maybe if people, high on "Shmaltz", were knocking on your door or invading your forum on Topix ...
My advice: don't take the guy seriously.
He doesn't deserve it.

There can be no all powerful compassionate god because we have evidence of avoidable suffering.

So what the hell are you following?

Yes He does. Main question is, why did you feel the need to make your false comment?
I never have the need to make the comment that the false god Shmaltz doesn't exist.

No, he killed many people because he was a power hungry egomaniac.

Most atheists are not power hungry OR egomaniacs. And some believers are both. Stalin killed because he wanted power, not because he was religious.

During his time in power, Stalin had a complex relationship with religion. He officially adopted the Russian Communist Party’s stance on religion, claiming atheism and continuing the tradition of teaching atheism in schools and propagating the idea that religion was only damaging to a perfect communist society. Stalin even took it further than his predecessor, Lenin, and initiated a nationwide campaign to destroy churches and religious property and even persecute and kill church officials.2 It is said that under Stalin, the Russian Orthodox Church went from 50,000 to 500 open and operating churches.

Atheism is a dibelief in god or gods.

Please show us all where it says we should murder people?

That's right another creationist piece of sh*t troll, lying to try to save his desperate cult.
