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.

Stalin adored his Russian Orthodox Church and gave them a fortune for renovating and building new churches. He was so kind and generous to his beloved church they unanimously made him a saint where he is one to this day.

Stalin was also fond of quoting long passages from the bible, rejected Darwin, and proudly declared he was a deeply spiritual man who saw God differently than other people.

Not exactly someone who would get along happily with say Dawkins lol!

Writers often think of paragraphs as units of length, but the paragraph measures something more abstract than number of posts: it measures ideas; possibly Not in your case.
Posting is a process, not a singular event. It is rarely an automatic occurrence, and requires diligence, creativity, defending skeptic, and practice.

You are absolutely right I have no refutable grounds against Christianity which means I have irrefutable grounds against Christianity.

1. The bibull which full of mistakes, hate and murder.
2. Your god myth which has murdered more people than your myth devil.
3. People like you who are a product of religion who are only capable of hate.

Your posts are irrefutable evidence that you and your religion are pure evil.

But keep up the good work you are driving people away from your so called loving god in droves.

<quoted text>Yeah, it's not the perpetrators of these monstrous practices that you'd have locked up, oh hell no. You would lock up those who are screaming "STOP HURTING THE CHILDREN". You would hide the evidence, eliminate those who have seen it, and then turn your own back to the horrendous suffering of these innocent children.

It is guilt by association, their god, is your god. He has been re-worked to fit their own perversions, but it is still the same god. So you can't let this filth be outed. Good luck trying to sweep this pile of shit under the rug.
Now you are really projecting. Where do you get your information from? First of all I could never ever hurt a child. Second when somebody talks about this a lot, it kind of sends a message that they are interested In this. 3rd, Bob is a molester, 4th I am beginning to think you are too. Maybe now I know the real reason why your children want you gone and buried. You are really leaving some great clues about your so called perfect life. Hmmmmmm....

During his time in power, Stalin had a complex relationship with religion. He officially adopted the Russian Communist Party’s stance on religion, claiming atheism and continuing the tradition of teaching atheism in schools and propagating the idea that religion was only damaging to a perfect communist society. Stalin even took it further than his predecessor, Lenin, and initiated a nationwide campaign to destroy churches and religious property and even persecute and kill church officials.2 It is said that under Stalin, the Russian Orthodox Church went from 50,000 to 500 open and operating churches.3

Stalin once said:

You know, they are fooling us, there is no God… all this talk about God is sheer nonsense.4

Exactly, and he was so kind to the Russian Orthodox Church they made him a saint.

I keep waiting for this long list of atheist killers that killed in the name of atheism. And waiting... And waiting... Best not hold your breath.

The ultra Christian Tsars killed hundreds of millions in the name of Jesus and bragged about it saying Jesus hand picked them to rule.

You're reporting me for abhoring the child abuse you won't condemn?

Good luck with that, ill educated twot.

All the creationists behave like children when asked for proof of god. They either:

quote the bible, attack you personally or make passive agressive posts with threats of hell.

these are the symptoms of the mental illness of faith.

I think atheism will replace religion, but i'd say not in the next 200 years so its pretty futile, I wish i had Jean-Paul sartre's attitude to religion, a man so thoroughly atheist he deemed the whole subject beneath his intelligence to consider. Simply religion is divisive and restricts us as a species, simple as that. Check out a book that's causing a bit of a buzz in the Uk called 2082 the chronicles of hope. On the website the 1st chapter for the 1st book is on there for free, there's a speech in there by an atheist politician that's genius
I'm not sure. People want to believe in something. Religion is a belief system or systematized belief. People may reject religion yet still believe in a supernatural or supreme being. Atheism is total rejection of any God head or supreme being. I thing atheist will always be a small group. People congregate together with other similar people. This is why religion is successful.
