"Liberty" follows the same line of arguing as Skeptic. They call everyone who doesn't agree with them 100% a godbot and then follow them around trying to defame them.

Predators of a feather flock together? They remind me of the mocking birds who hang out in my yard stalking my girl kitty, looking for any kind of revenge they can get. They swoop at her on the porch, plucking/grasping at her fur and she gets this sublimely happy look on her face, it looks suspiciously like pride in the fact that their hate reflects her superior skill in murdering their kin. She is a strange animal.:)

Christianity is the worst offender
of atrocities against man kind than any other cause

<quoted text>
Atheism is a faith - like any other. Only its a dark faith. It's destructive and evil. Atheists have killed more people in the last century than all of the religious leaders throughout human history combined. That is an indictment of atheism...of atheist liberalism - an evil, leftwing radical world view with an inherent message of despair and meaninglessesness surrounding existence. Atheist liberalism has hundreds of millions of victims (past and present victims).

I don't even know what "won" means in that context. I think Hitler would have brought as much lasting stability to Europe as Haliburton did to Iraq.

"Won" in that context could be viewed as .. Let us say Hitler is the settling European colonists in North America and the Jews are the Native Americans. Who "won"?

People who don't like their beliefs being laughed at shouldn't have such funny beliefs.

Surely "won" in this context would've meant conquering Russia and much of Europe- and making the result stick for more than a couple of years.

The only upside I can see to this thought is that the Eastern European countries wouldn't necessarily been shat on by Russia for nearly 50 years.
