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.

Some communists were atheists many were not. Communism and atheism are far different no matter what Faux News told you. Hitler was a vegetarian so do you want to call his crimes vegetarian murders? Millions of dead because of vegetarianism?

Not even you would be that stupid. Close but not that stupid. Again I ask and again you will run away because you weren't programmed on how to answer this question. Name the totalitarian leader who said we do this in the name of atheism? Show the quote?

Naturally you can't.

No matter how much you want to disembark from the Atheist crimes against humanity. They have accounted for over 200 million deaths. The Atheism went with the Communism and the Communism went with the Atheism. They were hand and hand.

How, exactly, is "my morality" hypocritical?

How many kids would the price of an assault weapon feed?
That depends on who's paying for it.

If a citizen pays maybe $500-$2000, you can bet the government is "paying" $10,000.....

It's still an ignorant queston. No matter is a Christian believes in Jesus or not, God is still God. And for the Christians that do believe in Jesus, Jesus IS God.

So asking a Christian "Which god" is an ignorant question.

Actually it was mainly theists who were behind forced prayer from being removed from school.

I guess Fox News just wants you to blame everything on atheists eh?

Why would a totalitarian leader like Stalin care? He said whatever the hell he wanted to whenever the hell he wanted to. You are dodging the question show where any of the murderous totalitarian leaders ever said or even were that they were killing in the name of atheism?

If you are unable your argument is null and void.

More was wasted on building churches, mosques, synagogues.

By contrast, the LHC can benefit everyone.

"The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. It was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) from 1998 to 2008, with the aim of allowing physicists to test the predictions of different theories of particle physics and high-energy physics, and particularly prove or disprove the existence of the hypothesized Higgs boson[1] and of the large family of new particles predicted by supersymmetric theories."

How many of those children died because the money to feed them was diverted to build a toy for theoretical physicists?

Not "in the name of" atheism, but in pursuit of an state which was atheist.

Atheists have killed plenty of people. Stalin, Pol Pot, and Mao Tse Tung were all atheists, and killed around 20 million, 1.5 million, and 40 million respectively.

Do some reading on the Reign of Terror (1793-4) in France...

The enactment of a law on October 21, 1793 made all suspected priests and all persons who harbored them liable to death on sight. The climax was reached with the celebration of the Goddess "Reason" in Notre Dame Cathedral on November 10. Because dissent was now regarded as counterrevolutionary, extremist enragés such as Hébert and moderate Montagnard indulgents such as Danton were guillotined in the spring of 1794. On June 7 Robespierre, who had previously condemned the Cult of Reason, advocated a new state religion and recommended that the Convention acknowledge the existence of God. On the next day, the worship of the deistic Supreme Being was inaugurated as an official aspect of the Revolution. Compared with Hébert's somewhat popular festivals, this austere new religion of Virtue was received with signs of hostility by an amazed Parisian public.

I recall Rick Perry's urging fellow Texans to three days of prayer to alleviate the 2011 drought. All those people locked in prayer, pleading with god for much needed rain and they received - nothing. I wonder how many people thought this will show the world that god does indeed exist? Bet there was a lot of head scratching and doubt after that debacle.
