History is currently being distorted by the millions of Christians who lie to have us believe that the Holocaust was not a Christian deed. Through subterfuge and concealment, many of today’s Church leaders and faithful Christians have camouflaged the Christianity of Adolf Hitler and have attempted to mark him an atheist, a pagan cult worshipper, or a false Christian in order to place his misdeeds on those with out Jesus. However, from the earliest formation of the Nazi party and throughout the period of conquest and growth, Hitler expressed his Christian support to the German citizenry and soldiers.<quoted text>
To be a Christian he would have had to make at least a little bit of effort to love his neighbor. I don't think we saw anything like that in his behaviour. It's obvious he never thought about the "oneness of spirit" that Jesus spoke of, or how he said that a man who hates his brother is a murderer in his heart and that a murderer will never see heaven. Hitler showed no signs of desiring the Christian heaven.
I believe that he said whatever he felt he had to to rise to a position of power and stay there. We see this in our own political process here in America. Politicians lie to us daily. Just look at the lies our current president tells us. He contradicts his own statements pretty much every day.

I consider these "myths" to be highly idealized misconceptions when applied to atheists in general, like those I know personally (offline), but suspect they may not be so mythical concerning the psychos on Topix. I've never come across such aggressive, repellent people online until visiting this site.

Too true. I only know one overly aggressive Atheist offline. I will admit that he is fun to mess with because he take EVERYTHING way too seriously. The only religious people that I know are family members most everyone else keeps that sort of thing to themselves. The only way I know that certain people are religious are by their choice of X-mas cards.

Yeah this is one of the most hostile forum areas that I have come across. Weird.

Hey! Now you people got me doing it. MYTHSssss!

Atheists want religion removed from schools so they can push the homosexual agenda upon our children. That is exactly why there are more and more stories in the news about teacher molesting children.

Atheists are not trustworthy. They are backstabbing opportunists. They figure that life has no meaning so they may as well take what they can as often as they can.
There is no right or wrong among atheists. This is the inherent message of the atheist faith. They are almost exclusively america-hating liberals too.

Good post.

I think you're right. We are seeing the social fabric of America literally unwinding under atheist-liberalism. The culmination of America's social decay was in electing Obama to a 2nd term inspite of his most terrible record as the worst President in American history.

I beleive America is done. The American people are to blame for pissing away, what so many fought and died for over the last 200 years. It's a sad and tragic end for the greatest nation in the history...of history.

I do not see why you would say that. My life has a lot of meaning and I have a very, very good life and family.

How that is just plain bullsh!t. My morals have been higher that a lot of the Christians I know and see in society. By the way I am a libertarian. Most of the atheists that I know are libertarian, not all but quite a few.

You're a fckniug idiot. How many atheists do you see holding out their hands every wednesday and twice on sunday for the sheep to fill it with money?

Men of god are the ones who take and take from the poor fools who believe that if they don't fork over their hard earned money they will burn in hell.

christians are gullible chumps and should be charged with mental abuse on children for teaching them that stupid lord's prayer. How the hell can they sleep if they are afraid that god is going to whack them before they wake? That is cruel!

Atheist faith? That's an oxymoron. You're just a simple moron.

Great post. Particularly this last comment.

This is an iron-clad indictment of atheism and liberalism. It's a deadly combination and it has destroyed America.

Oh but atheists do worship. They worship what they like to call their own, "human spirit." They think they can work out their problems all by themselves. America is f*cked up beyond repair today precisely because of atheist-liberals.

The biggest myth about atheism is that idea that atheists are generally good people. They simply are not.

Atheists historically have a bad habit of murdering people in their millions...and you never see or hear anything about conservative atheists who believe in inalienable rights - look it up.

That's because inalienable rights are god given rights. Atheists by definition, do not believe in god given rights. They believe that rights are things that can be given and taken away by leftwing radicals (like Obama).

Notice too how history's atheist liberal tyrants were all leftwing radicals. They never choose capitalism and freedom, prefering instead communist/socialist tyranny - where the will of the few is imposed upon the many.

Atheism is by far, a net negative for humanity.

The practice of atheism has spread to slightly more than half the population. Many of these atheists will claim some other faith however. But they live their lives as atheists.

These are the people who voted for Obama. They voted for entitlements at the expense of their freedom, their opportunity and even their children's own futures.

These people voted for their own social decay...for teaching children about homosexual sex, and using condoms instead of abstinence.

All of America's social and economic problems can laid at the feet of atheist-liberalism.

They get pissed off by this fact. They are choosing a dark faith...and it is a faith. There is no escaping it.
It's like the song lyrics by that old rock band "RUSH"..."...yo u may choose not to decide, BUT YOU STILL HAVE MADE A CHOICE!" LOL.

Thanks.

Very good posts of your own as well.

This rediculous article reads as if it were written by a college freshman - fresh out of first quarter philosophy class...Having just had his mushy soft brains sculpted by his atheist professor. But supposedly, this guy is an adult? LOL.

Atheists do employ faith in order to embrace their dark world view. And the inherant message is in fact, that life is meaningless. They get very upset and swear up and down, that their lives are meaningful. But when pressed to explain how, they become indignant and childishly insulting...which is why this article reads like a child wrote it.

Atheists refuse to see the obvious impact of their faith. Life is meaningless, morals are nothing but social constructs created by human groups...so, ultimately, there is no judgement for your actions.

The atheist golden rule? "Only do unto others, as long as you know that you can get away with it." Not exactly the kind of message that builds great societies and super powers. The atheist will swear again and again, that even though they believe these things, their "human spirit" keeps them in line...somehow.

Atheists are a joke. Atheist-liberalism is a social cancer.

These atheist clowns believe in mankind's "natural morality." Have they looked around? Not only has atheist america demonstrated zero morality lately, but nature itself is not moral - it is opportunistic and cruel.

Atheists beleive that they are just flatulent, hairless monkeys.

Have these farting monkey atheists seen what monkeys do to each other if and when the opportunity presents itself?
