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

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

Well at least atheists don't strap bombs to their chest and go on suicide missions like you Jewish wannabes do.

Atheists do not have a belief system, they are just like uncontrolled hordes than wander on earth.
Their only unifying point is "There is no God and there is no religion".
But for that they have nothing in common.
They unite in negativity.
That is why they cannot bring any civlization, they cannot create any society.
And if they get to rule, they are extremely cruel and extremists in their rules.
Because they have no "belief system"....nothing to restrain their hands.

Atheists are necessarily more peaceful, they can and do commit violence, sometimes on a large scale.

As do I. Perhaps you would like to eradicate all reference to religion or a deity in the public square. You could start by beginning s campaign to rename any American city that has a religious name, such as St.Louis, St.Paul, or Corpus Cristi. Remove "In God We Trust" from our currency. Certain professional sports teams would also require a name change. No more Angels, Saints, Devils, even the Padres. That's a start for now. Get to work.

Atheists have that as well, we just don't attribute it to some made up god as your ilk does.

That's true, but it isn't motivated by religion or the absense of belief(s) in god(s). Zionism, Islamism and other religions do motivate people to do harm. Fundamentalists see themselves as motivated by religion. That's what they say, not me. They say they are 'defending Islam' or refer to 'Christian duty', or 'my beliefs dictate'.

Religion = superstition and the results of superstition in any society have never been good.

But for every violent atheist you find there is easily 100,000 violent believers.

The end result is still the same. Violence is still violence. Atheists lack of belief can also be a compelling motivation. Stalin had no issue with mass murder.

Religion can, and has, motivate people to help their fellow man, to clothe the naked, feed the hungry, house the homeless, educate children and adults, care for widows and orphans, etc.
Religion = superstition and the results of superstition in any society have never been good.
Religion can, and has evolved. It can also incorporate science, law, medicine, and other areas of intellectual pursuit into its belief systems.

Hitler was a catholic Stalin went to priest school an is to this day a saint in the Russian Orthodox Church. All if these men were totalitarians. Do show where one of them stated they were having people killed in the name of atheism and not because of consolidating power?

Unlike Christians who gush over killing for Jesus like Hitler who dubbed the Jews Christ killers who were going to pay for that.

You mean saint Stalin in the Russian Orthodox Church? Again he never once stated or wrote that he had people killed in the name of atheism.

You are flailing badly.

No.

Hitler was born into the Catholic Church, but hated Christianity and planned to eradicate it from Germany. Plans were already being implemented for completion as soon as they got rid of the jews. The Nuremberg documents prove this beyond any doubt, and it is not even debatable, except in certain isolated circles of christian-haters and nazi-sypathizers.

Hitlers philosophy was,...wait for it,...wait for it,...

DARWINISM!


Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda:

"The Fuhrer is deeply religous, though completely anti-Christian. He views Christianity as a symptom of decay. Rightly so. It is a branch of the Jewish race... Both [Judaism and Christianity] have no point of contact to the animal element, and thus, in the end, they will be destroyed."

How, dear GiveMeLiverwurst, do you manage to be wrong on every single thing you say?

Seriously, how do you do it? Most people can be right once in a while just due to statistical probability.

How you can be wrong 100% of the time is mind-boggling.

Did you have a reverse NDE? Are you hallucinating about not being born yet?

You should submit yourself to scientific study. Your brain is truly a miracle in error.

WRong again, GiveMeLiverwust.

Atheist mass murder in the last 75 years dwarfs the murders by believers in all of history.

What is it about atheists, that when they get a position of power, they start mass-murdering their own people?

Are they all - like you - just stupid as hell?

Personally, I sense there's more beyond this physical existence. Can it be empirically proven? Not that I'm aware of. Is it your belief we came into existence from non existence and return to non existence?
Our senses, it turns out, suck at judging reality. Our personalities probably begin to form in the womb, we eventually become a sum of our experiences. We 'return to non-existence' when our brain activity stops. It's really not rocket science.

You're right about that! And those who get first crack at it have the advantage.
