What else were you lying about?
Hitler lost his faith as a young man, then he scorned the people who believed in God especially clergy and he scorned everything what was connected with faith. His attitude towards clergy was hostile. He didn't believe in Christian God and any other god. God was the same delusion for him as notion of good and evil. He repeated that the belief in God should be lost the same as the first teeth. If Nazism win he promised to crack down on Catholicism and the rest of Christianity.

He didn't believe in God, he considered himself as God!

The same Stalin, he was brought up first by a drunk father then by godless Bolsheviks, atheistical structures of the state. From 1932 to 1937 Joseph Stalin declared the 'five year plans of atheism' and the LMG was charged with completely eliminating all religious expression in the country. Only During the purges of 1937 and 1938, church documents record that 168,300 Russian Orthodox clergy were arrested. Of these, over 100,000 were shot.

Watch the soviet story :

You are lying about Hitler, he was a devout Christian his ENTIRE life as were the MILLIONS of Germans who supported his third Reich. He did have some issues with the Catholic church, but what protestant doesn't.

I'll stop there .... Why debunk everything a lying Christian says? There is an easy way to tell a Christian is lying .... their mouths move.

I don't even need the rest of your post. Just right here, you said it. You posted a video, denied it being propaganda, even called the claims historical facts, then when called on a specific point, you agree that it's author's interpretation. Not fact. But interpretation portrayed as fact, and then repeated by you as fact. Definitive propaganda. So yeah, I still don't think you quite get the meaning and useage...

I guess I can make one more comment on it. You called the video historical fact, then state it makes huge exaggerations? Doesn't give much credibility to what you call factual, or deny being biased propaganda.

If you don't see a difference between over 100 million victims killed by atheists only during one century and several dozen thousands people killed during centuries by people who considered themselved as Christians, you shouldn't deal with history but maybe you should learn arithmetic.
Moreover, Communists have naver apologized for their crimes. The Church many times have apologized for its mistakes.

A downloadable .pdf that the above link references and speaks of. Both are Christian sources.
http://www.noiseofthunder.com/storage/50%20mi...

The .pdf, details the Papacy and its search and pursuit of Heretics etc.. from around 600CE to the present.
The estimates run from just below 50 million, to as high as 120 million.

Protestants, Heretics, Pagans,"savages" and others. Dead.

In the name of spreading and enforcing the "real"
Christian religion.

It's compiled by a Christian, and references Christian writings and estimates of the time periods - that range from the 600CE-1850's.

Authenticated correspondence to various Popes, from his "commanders", "representatives", and others, and their reports of the progress they were making, are included.

An example:

As an illustration of the attitude of the Catholic Church towards the Protestants in Bohemia, Robbins [Ecclesiastical Megalomania, The Trinity Foundation, 1999, p. 134] writes “Two centuries after Thomas, Martin V (1417-1431) ordered the King of Poland to exterminate the Hussites. The Pope wrote to the King:

"Know that the interests of the Holy See, and those of your crown, make it a duty to exterminate the Hussites. Remember that these impious persons dare proclaim principles of equality; they maintain that all Christians are brethren and that God has not given to privileged men the right of ruling the nations; they hold that Christ came on Earth to abolish slavery; they call the people to liberty, that is to the annihilation of kings and priests. While there is still time, then, turn your forces against Bohemia; burn, massacre, make deserts everywhere, for nothing could be more agreeable to God, or more useful to the cause of kings, than the extermination of the Hussites.

"In Bohemia, by 1600, in a population of 4,000,000, 80 per cent were Protestant. When the Hapsburgs and Jesuits had done their work, 800,000 were left, all Catholics."

Another excerpt:

During its rise to power, the Papacy also essentially exterminated the Heruli shortly after 493 A.D., the Vandals soon after 533 A.D., and the Ostrogoths in 554 A.D, all of whom were asserted to hold to the Arian belief. However, Limborch (The History of the Inquisition, p. 95) doubts that Arius held the views attributed to him. Concerning the Vandals, Bunch writes:

“It is reckoned that during the reign of Justinian, Africa lost five millions of inhabitants; thus Arianism was extinguished in that region, not by any enforcement of conformity, but by the extermination of the race which had introduced and professed it.”– History of the Christian Church, J.C. Robertson, Vol. 1, p. 521.

I've had a .doc version of this and just by chance decided to search for it and found it available on the web in .pdf format.

And FYI there are far more people in prison that believe in a god then there are atheist ...

You've contradicted your own numbers which you stated were "historical fact". Any numbers are as credible as your own, and your ability to objectively talk about them is quite questionable.

Just as here, you call something rubbish, give a random unsupported number of a population at a certain time. But the funny thing is it doesn't relate at all to anything in the post you quoted. It said 50-120mil from 600 to present.

Have you any more links to support your biased arguments, which you then disagree with yourself after calling them factual? Good job comprehending.

The world consists and consisted of more than just Europe in Christianity of 600CE - and forward. Christianity pursued a relentless effort of conversion of the peoples wherever it happened to be, and did so by imposing the beliefs.

Sure, people were given the option of choosing to accept "tha Loooordd"...

Or die.

History is full of examples of this.

Even today Christians burn suspected "witches" in Africa.

Great.

So you have nothing to back up your claim that "we have already disproven hell" but your ego is in the way of admitting that's only your opinion.
