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.

with that poster it's more about what he doesn't say, than what he does.

Please allow me to complete the article,

"Stalin's close associates and loyalists included member of the Central Committee and Politburo Lazar Kaganovich. Montefiore characterizes him as the "first Stalinist" and adds that those starving to death in Ukraine, an unparalleled tragedy in the history of human kind aside from the Nazi horrors and Mao's terror in China, did not move Kaganovich.

Many Jews sold their soul to the devil of the Communist revolution and have blood on their hands for eternity. We'll mention just one more: Leonid Reichman, head of the NKVD's special department and the organization's chief interrogator, who was a particularly cruel sadist.

In 1934, according to published statistics, 38.5 percent of those holding the most senior posts in the Soviet security apparatuses were of Jewish origin. They too, of course, were gradually eliminated in the next purges. In a fascinating lecture at a Tel Aviv University convention this week, Dr. Halfin described the waves of soviet terror as a "carnival of mass murder," "fantasy of purges", and "essianism of evil." Turns out that Jews too, when they become captivated by messianic ideology, can become great murderers, among the greatest known by modern history.

The Jews active in official communist terror apparatuses (In the Soviet Union and abroad) and who at times led them, did not do this, obviously, as Jews, but rather, as Stalinists, communists, and "Soviet people." Therefore, we find it easy to ignore their origin and "play dumb": What do we have to do with them? But let's not forget them. My own view is different. I find it unacceptable that a person will be considered a member of the Jewish people when he does great things, but not considered part of our people when he does amazingly despicable things.

Even if we deny it, we cannot escape the Jewishness of "our hangmen," who served the Red Terror with loyalty and dedication from its establishment. After all, others will always remind us of their origin."

But atheism has never provided any motivation for violence. There are no atheist suicide bombers or riots against cartoons.

Religion/atheism has nothing to do with morality. Religion certainly doesn't make people or governments more moral. Religion is based on superstitions and myths, such as Abrahamic god(s). It simply demonstrates a lack of rationality - hardly a characteristic associated with peace or compromise.

Religion contributes to (or even drives) a lot of madness these days. There's the Lee Rigsby murder, Iraq's bomb-blasts, the refusal by Islamists in Syria to help form a united SNC. The madness is endless...

By doing so, funnily enough, ANU singles out Islam as a uniquely violent and backwards faith, whose followers are unable to restrain themselves when a few people crack a joke about it.

that was to someone else, but I am curious about the point you are making. please continue. I suspect that the people from scandinavian countries are less bloodthirsty now than in previous times, or than people from many other nations, if you are providing data.... but they may be victims of extremists who hate their peacefulness and social welfare systems.

I do not think extremists hit the US for that reason, because I do not think we are as peaceful or as caring about the welfare of all our people as Sweden, Norway, and Denmark are. I think extremists hit the US because of US invasions of other countries, or overthrow of leaders of other countries, as in Iran in the mid-50's. I also think the crusading spirit of a few of the powerful US rightwing warmongering Christians is more offensive to folks of other religions than the more tolerant views of most scandinavians.

BTW Most Israeli zionazis are atheist nationalists and have been engaged in a genocide against the Palestinian people in particular and Muslims in general for over 70 years. When the zionazis are not busy robbing and killing Palestinian Christians and Muslims, they and their paid liars-for-hire plaster internet blogs with anti-Muslim hate messages like you're doing. Ironically, those hate messages are the smoking gun evidence that atheists like you don't have a shred of decency or morality, bubba.

Tell us about all the genocides being done and planned in Sweden. There have been no genocides done in the name of atheism. Not one. And yes you will cower away from this.

Have there been a few bloody totalitarian leaders who were non believers? Sure.

I have yet to see one genocide committed in the name of atheism.

But I can show several done in the name of religion.

Atheism isn't a cause or a philosophy which people fight die and/or are killed for. If a person is killed in the name of a belief it's generally done by those of an opposing religious viewpoint. Currently the christians in egypt are having a very hard time at the hands of the muslims and the jews in israel the same, the irish catholics killed the protestants the shia are killing the sunni...etc and so on.

Being killed in the name of atheism is just like being killed by a dark haired person because you have red hair, it just doesn't happen.

"Yesh, right". They didn't believe in pixies either, but disbelief in pixies didn't motivate communists either. It's religious tribalism that is the basis for Islamism, Zionism. Atheism is no motivation for anything, it dismisses superstition - an advantage to any society.

You sound anti-Zionist? One cannot undermine one superstition (e.g Judaism or Islam) while trying to maintain another (e.g Christianity).

And nobody is going to start believing in sky-pixies like Abrahamic god(s) because you happen to be prejudiced against non-believers.

If you can't understand what atheism is from reading a dictionary, perhaps Jonny Eve can help you cope with life?....

Religion/atheism is a lot of hogwash. The world should reject such nonsense and people should only believe anything to the extent that the belief is justified by reason and evidence.

Religions are nasty business - especially Liberalism.
In El Salvador, currently, there is a woman, 22, she’s very sick, and she’s pregnant with an anencephalic fetus. The fetus is doomed and can never live outside the womb, but the pregnancy is worsening her condition, and could kill her, too. The solution is simple: an abortion would give her a chance. But, guess what? Abortion is illegal in El Salvador, no matter the circumstance, so they have most likely condemned her to die.

It's funny how Liberalism is a religion to you but not Conservativism. Perhaps you're right. Conservativism is a disease. No matter your feelings on abortion, and I am on the fence, the same idiots want to prevent sex education and contraceptive use, two things that could eliminate unwanted pregnancy and limit abortion to cases of rape and medical emergency. Idiots.

Now hold on there, Babbalooey. You're getting confused. Stalin, Pol Pot, Little Kim Jong Un, et al were Pharoahs. They were the god heads in their society and considered "mainstream" religion a detriment to their worship. Worship of Dear Leaders is just as theistic as when you worship your invisible sky friend.

The parallel is this:

1. God commands us to kill those who forsake him.

2. Stalin commands us to kill those who forsake him.

The terms are easily interchangeable. Unfortunately for you, you can't plug in atheism commands us to kill those who forsake it. We believe in nothing, remember? All atheism is a simple lack of belief in a god or gods, like you feel about Allah or The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

By the way, Stalin was actually enrolled in school to become an Orthodox priest. What better place to learn of power and ambition than within the immoral Chrostian framework? What better place to inflate the ego and understand the inner workings of a theistic leadership. What better place to understand what it means to be a Pharaoh? Do you know the name of Stalin's favorite novel? Pharoah. Stalin was even mummified like a god. Like an Egyptian pharaoh who had slaves buried along with him, Stalin compelled some of his people to accompany him to the other world. What type of atheist believes in an afterlife. Stalin was a god as much as Yeahnoway is a god. It really is that simple.

Israel and the US are supplying weapons to the terrorist "rebels" who are committing these war crimes, bubba.
Another Islamic cleric has gone public to announce a fatwa that permits US-backed FSA rebels to rape non-Sunni women in Syria as part of a “sexual jihad” that has seen girls as young as 14 transported into the country to service the needs of anti-Assad militants.
Image: Wikimedia Commons
“Salafi Sheikh Yasir al-‘Ajlawni, a Jordanian of origin who lived in Damascus, Syria for 17 years, posted a YouTube video last week where he said he was preparing to issue a “legitimate fatwa” making it legal (in the eyes of Islam) for those Muslims fighting to topple secular president Bashar Assad and install Sharia law to “capture and have sex with” all non-Sunni women, specifically naming Assad’s own sect, the Alawites, as well as the Druze and several others, basically, all non-Sunnis and non-Muslims,” reports Human Events.
As CNS News reported earlier this week, girls as young as 14 are being sent to Syria from other middle eastern and north African countries following a call by Saudi scholar Sheikh Mohamed al-Arifi for rebels to engage in “sexual jihad,” a so-called “temporary marriage” that amounts to little more than sex slavery.
Though he later backtracked after pressure,“al-Arifi had issued a fatwa saying Syrian rebels can “temporarily marry” Syrian girls as young as 14, and promising “paradise” to the “wives” concerned,” states the report.
The fatwa allowed “intercourse marriage” with captive Syrian women that lasts for a few hours “in order to give each fighter a turn,” which as the Human Events report notes, is “also known as gang-rape.”
Egyptian Sheikh Ishaq Huwaini also once urged “infidel captives” to be taken to “the slave market, where slave-girls and concubines are sold” and distributed amongst jihadists.....

Paedophile to be beheaded and crucified in Saudi Arabia for string of sex attacks where he left toddler to die in desert
A man in Saudi Arabia is to be beheaded and crucified after he raped five children and left one of them, a three-year-old boy, to die in the desert.
An appeal court in the capital Riyadh approved the death sentence handed down in June by judges in the northwestern oasis city of Hail where the convicted 22-year-old man carried out his crimes.
The rapist - who was not named - was arrested several weeks ago as he tried to seize another boy after offering him a ride home from school.
The seven-year-old - who escaped unharmed - helped identify the culprit.
The man’s victims were aged between three and seven. He was said to have lured them into his car as they left school at midday and then drove them to remote desert locations to rape them.
An investigation was launched after a 25-year-old father reported that his three-year-old son was missing and that he suspected the kidnapper to be a male driver of a white four-wheel drive vehicle.
The infant was later found under a scorching sun in the desert where he had died of thirst.
A panel of three judges in Hail sentenced the rapist to death for “abhorrent”  crimes which they said had terrorised the community.
Crucifixion in the conservative desert Kingdom means tying the convict’s body to wooden beams to be displayed to the public after he is decapitated by a professional swordsman.
Saudi Arabia has executed 56 people this year under laws that allow the death penalty for rape, murder, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking.
In extreme cases, the convict is executed and his body crucified in public.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12250...
He was on point. If only the man had married the children:

Failures to address the issue of child marriage in Saudi Arabia have come into the spotlight once again after a 15 year old girl forced to marry an elderly man fled shortly after the wedding.
The man was reportedly around 90, and paid a dowry of over $17,000 USD to marry the girl. Reports say the marriage was not consummated, as shortly after the ceremony the young girl locked herself in a room, tore her wedding dress in distress, and broke down crying.

More than 5,000 girls below the age of 14 are married off in Saudi Arabia, according to media reports.
There have been 5,622 marriages where the bride is under the age of 14 in Saudi Arabia, said Ali Abdul Rahman Al Roumi, a social services academic at Imam Mohammad Bin Saud Islamic University, adding that specifying a legal age would not solve the problem, and may lead to “even bigger problems”.
A number of families from “rural areas” have been marrying their daughters off to older, rich men, according to the Saudi owned Al Hayat newspaper.

“We must solve this, by at least looking at the difference in age in cases where the bride is young, in which case it can be deceptive” he said. He did not specify what period of time that figure represents.

Infowars has pickled your brain.
