That tells us nothing about whether he was an atheist.

You have never demonstrated that Stalin turned to God for help.
If you can, demonstrate away.
Are you deliberately this stupid or does it come naturally?

Despite the truncated and cherry picked propaganda that you out forward he rebuilt the church infrastructure and opened 25000 churches, that he was on the committee to elect a new head of the church that under his rule monasteries and seminaries etc were re-opened.

He had several religious books in his library

In his later years he told his daughter

I have already provided evidence of these, I am to busy to go looking again, teach yourself.

I don't know if you know this, but you typing words on your keyboard isn't fact, it isn't you posting evidence. If you posting your opinion.

So I challenge you again, if you have evidence that Stalin turned to God for help then please post it.

If not, shut the fuck up.

Why is this an issue worth so much energy? Is this being offered as evidence that science is unreliable 9in general, or that Darwin's theory of evolution is not valid?

If the illustrations are faulty or misleading, they should be replaced with better ones. Is anybody resisting this idea?

Well, there you go! Proof Stalin was a Christian, not an atheist - He had religious books in his library....

This outweighs the evidence of him spending his adult life trying to eradicate religion, and create an atheist state.

And saying "There is no god".

Everyone knows if you have books on a subject, it makes you that subject.

Like I have books about science fiction - that makes me an astronaut.

They resisted when they included it, as they already knew it was discredited.

The importance is as another building block of proof of the Darwinists' propaganda tendencies.

They never seem quite content with what the science says.

OK. But I thought you meant what you said, which is this: "Understanding how the world could evolve to the state we find it today and operate without supervision or intervention was the hard part, which is why it came millennia later,"
The existence of the universe and how the world evolved to "the state we find it today" is not understood. Parts are.
Yes, there is still more to learn, but little of it seems relevant to theological matters, and the fact that some things remain unknown lends very little support to god claims. It seems that we no longer need a god to have constructed our universe or to operate it, which is what is implied by "the god of the gaps."

If you recall, this discussion began:

tricki: "atheism is the product of the minds of FOOLS it is impossible for anyone to gaze out upon the universe and not understand that something, somewhere was responsible for it; Unless you are a FOOL "

IANS: "Actually, jumping to the god conclusion is the easier choice. Ancient and primitive people did it readily. Understanding how the world could evolve to the state we find it today and operate without supervision or intervention was the hard part, which is why it came millennia later, and is only well understood by the best minds - the people you are calling fools."

The issue wasn't whether the mysteries of the cosmos have all been solved yet, but which type of people who gaze at the cosmos and think that they understand it are fools. I don't think that there will be much dissent if I say that the poster I cited qualifies.

.. he rebuilt the church infrastructure and opened 25000 churches,...
Oh, I'm sure that was comforting. Probably made everyone forget about this:

"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...Official Soviet figures reported that up to one third of urban and two thirds of rural population still held religious beliefs by 1937. However, the anti-religious campaign of the past decade and the terror tactics of the militantly atheist regime, had effectively eliminated all public expressions of religion and communal gatherings of believers outside of the walls of the few churches that still held services. This was accomplished in a country that only a few decades earlier had had a deeply Christian public life and culture that had developed for almost a thousand years."

And I guess it made up for this:

"After 1929 and through the 1930s, the closing of churches, mass arrests of the clergy and religiously active laity, and persecution of people for attending church reached unprecedented proportions. The League of Militant Godless employed terror tactics against believers in order to further the campaign, while employing the guise of protecting the state or prosecuting law-breakers. The clergy were attacked as foreign spies and trials of bishops were conducted with their clergy as well as lay adherents who were reported as 'subversive terroristic gangs' that had been unmasked. Official propaganda at the time called for the banishment of the very concept of God from the Soviet Union. These persecutions were meant to assist the ultimate socialist goal of eliminating religion. 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"
