Christians. Hilarious.
Exactly right!

And that the Nazis were a Christian nation. And that none of those dictators killed people in the name of atheism - with Mao and Pol Pot, it was all about economics.
Have you been to Russia and visited the Church? The Nazi's burned Jews and Christians. The Nazi's were about race, they hated religion.....Just like you. Killing people because they have religion is the same as killing in the name of your religion, atheism.

Woops. One mistake. He didn't hate Christians. Nice try though.
is that why Christians were sent to the ovens? You have a short history memory.
In the early 1930s, the Catholic bishops of Germany excommunicated any and all Catholics who joined the Nazi party, wore the uniform, or flew the swastika flag (including Adolph Hitler). Stupid you, again.

Maybe. A lot of these OT myths are directly traceable to the religion of Mesopotamia. They made it into Jewish mythology through cultural diffusion - Mesopotamia was, after all, the center of the civilized world for thousands of years before collapse.
Anyways, "the land between two rivers" used to flood every year. That's why they had such great crops. So their mythology revolved around flooding.
The Jews borrowed this myth and adopted it for their own. It's that simple.
That sounds about right. The didn't call Mesopotamia the Fertile Crescent for nothing.

Since this topic has changed to "hitler". Right now, the world is falling apart.

Once America left the world stage, a vacuum was created.

Now war is breaking out all over the world.

Hillary Clinton created a cold war with Russia. Make no mistake about it.

She called Putin "Hitler."

Never forget that.

Hillary Clinton is the worst diplomat in American history, next to John Kerry.

Obama's team makes Jimmy Carter look like Ronald Reagan.

That's how left-wing, incompetent and out of control they are.

I thought it interesting that Babylonian myth became Biblical myth.
The story of Noah's ark, as it is told in the Bible, is a reworking of an earlier Babylonian myth recorded in the Gilgamesh Epic. The hero of the earlier version is one Utnapishtim, the favorite of Ea, the god of wisdom. It seems probable that the Babylonian story was based on an unusually devastating flood in the Euphrates (Firat) River basin, and that the ark in it grounded on the slopes of one of the Zagros mountains. The biblical word that we read as "Ararat" could as well be read "Urartu"; the text has merely "rrt" and the proper vowels must be supplied.

I'll have to read up on the old Gilgamesh. It was several thousand years between the clay tablets, to the paperback edition.

Amazing. A story to be told to everyone. If only Christians would remember what he stood for. Nonviolence (no guns). Care for the poor, sick or unfortunate (SNAP/ACA). Equality and decency (Immigration).
Could you imagine what Jesus would think of the today's Christians in this country? The money taken in his name, the bigotry spread in churches, the violence and hatred preached against everyone from homosexuals to immigrants to Muslims.
It so rarely seems to be a case of "Thus saith the Lord". Nowadays, it's more a case of "Thus said Jerry Falwell".

I love it when dumb tea baggers pretend that Bush isn't an admitted international war criminal who destroyed the greatest economy in the history of man and killed, mutilated or dismembered 30,000 Americans for lies.

Are you seriously trying to deflect tens of thousands of years of atrocities, suffering, starvation and suppression of science by religion with four years in the 1940s?

Good luck with that.

Wow. Why are you persisting in lying about history? It's the easiest thing to check up on in the world.

The Nazis didn't begin their genocide until much, much later than 1931, idiot, and the excommunication had NOTHING to do with human rights violations.

" Though hostility between the Nazi Party and the Catholic Church was real, the Nazi Party first developed in largely Catholic Munich, where many Catholics, lay and clerical, offered enthusiastic support.[1] This early [minority] affinity lessened after 1923. By 1925, Nazism embarked a different path following its reconstitution in 1920 taking a decidedly anti-Catholic-Christian identity.[2] In early 1931, the German Bishops issued an edict excommunicating all Nazi leadership and banned Catholics from membership. The ban was conditionally modified in the Spring of 1933 under pressure to address State law requiring all Civil Servants and Trade Union workers be members of the Nazi Party, while retaining condemnation of core Nazi ideology.[3] In early 1933, following Nazi successes in the 1932 elections, lay Catholic monarchist Franz von Papen, and acting Chancellor and Presidential advisor, General Kurt von Schleicher, assisted Adolf Hitler's appointment as Reich Chancellor by President Paul von Hindenburg."

So basically, you're a liar for Jesus. You do your religion proud - the only question I have is this:

Why would anyone want to be part of a religion so pathetic it has to lie to promote itself?

You are the one who brought Hitler into this conversation out of desperation to attack atheists because you have no honest argument. Everything you have said so far about atheists and Hitler have been demonstrated as falsehoods.

What a pathetic religion you espouse, to be so steeped in dishonesty.

"The Russian Orthodox Church has come under heavy criticism on the Internet this week over a 2014 wall calendar published by a revered monastery's printing house that features portraits of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

The black-and-white calendar, titled "Stalin" and costing 200 roubles ($6), is advertised as "a great gift for veterans and history fans". Historian Mikhail Babkin brought it to public attention on his blog on Jan.7."

Whatever you do, don't stop being dishonest. You are fantastically showcasing how miserable your religion is and the damages it has wrought to your character.
