God isn't real. When we want the opinions of a mentally ill creationist who lies about atheists and scientist, we will be sure to ask you.

Another lame attempt to connect atheism with mass murder. Atheism is a lack of belief in god. Can you tell us where the murder part comes in?

Exactly, now f*ck off you piece of sh*t creationist troll.

When your cult finally teaches you about the morals of honesty and proving god, your two-bit opinions about abortion might not be ignored (doubtful).

Posting a wiki link does not remove from you the need to account for the existence of logic...
You claim atheists use logic, but you continually fail to account for logic.
You are like a man pulled over by the police and when asked to prove you own the car, you keep asserting the mere fact you are driving the car proves your ownership...
Might want to work on your analogies.

Get a clue, HairyBetty.

Stalin's officially stated goal was "atheism".

Stalin's 5-year Atheist Plan:

"According to the plan on religion liquidation, all churches and prayer houses should have been closed [in] 1932-1933, all religious traditions implanted by literature and family [in] 1933-1934. It was planned that the country, and firstly, youth would be grasped by total anti-religious propaganda [in] 1934-1935; the last clerics were to be eliminated [in]1935-1936; the very memory about God should have been disappeared from life to 1937."

No just quoting it, when you quote or mention Dawkins does that mean you are in sync with him?

Such a childish debate tactic you Christians use I must say.

His apologetic response will be... What about raping children? Are you saying this is not absolutely wrong? And don't bring up when god had his people rape children and other atrocities he commanded! Lol!

Once you say something is absolute it is frozen there. If morals were absolute then they would never improve. For example before it was considered moral to deny certain races equal rights. It was considered moral to not allow women to vote. It was considered moral to flog your child with a belt or other homemade whip. All of these things are now considered immoral in our humanist secular society and those are only a small sampling of things previously considered moral that are now immoral. If the morals of the bible were absolute and perfect, we would never have abolished slavery for example.

Secular humanism wins again!:)

Stalin renovated and even built several new Orthodox Churches. If what your church website says is true why would he renovate and build so many Orthodox Churches?

Also at the same time in history Christians were known to beat, tar and feather even kill non Christians in the streets even here in the US. Many life long Jews for example had to either convert or pretend to be Christians to save their own lives.

But I guess you don't want to look at how Christians at the time were behaving as well eh?

I could go on about their wives, children and more of my family tree if you wish.

So after humiliating yourself again, how can you possibly know what the future will hold for my atheist friends? How can you possibly know if they will be remembered or not? Regardless this is meaningless one way or the other.

Who was the local administrator of your church 50 years ago? 100 years ago? 200 years ago? Hell 20 years ago? Lol!

And again before you say his remembers them, you must demonstrate observable evidence there is a god before you can even attempt to assign attributes and deeds to him.
Can you supply any evidence for your claim about your family tree?

I would like to see some of the evidence you have offered.

So why did he then revive the orthodox church in Russia instead of sending them to die in Gulag ?
