Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Sorry buddy, satanism is as much god worship as christianity
Perhaps you have not considered the actual meaning of the word atheism
Correct.

Satanism is merely the worship of the more powerful deity in the Christian pantheon and is based solely on Christianity.

satanism probably has a lower bodycount. What with god being a genocidal psycho and all that.

Stalin admitted many times that he was an atheist. Stalin's actions showed that he was an atheist. And no, I never threatened to kill you.
Why do godbots ignore facts that they object to? Is it part of your indoctrination?

I have asked both you and buck you several times to provide “first hand” evidence that Stalin claimed he was atheist. As yet neither of you has provided anything other than second hand, hearsay and after the fact stuff mostly written about his power struggle and nationalism while ignoring the majority of his life;.

Compare that with the facts that I have proved spanning his whole life and objectively consider.

And “objectively” is the big word that is causing you so much problem isn’t it?

You claimed that you missed be because your sights were faulty, No matter how much you squirm and pass it off as a joke, it was a direct statement that you had me targeted in the sights of your gun.

For what other purpose would you make such a claim other than threat?

Stalin was not responsible for opening churches.
Your word is shit, I see no reason to try a conversation with you.
Stalin was head of state and as one of your heads of state one famously said “the buck stops here”

Nope not the bus and not the butt crack

Whether it was his actual words or not that caused the opening of 25000 churches, the responsibility for that opening was his.

My word and the word of several accredited sources as opposed to your word that actually provided nothing but faith.

But if you want to butt out, then that fine my me. Goodbye until next time…

Much lower

I never heard any story of satan committing genocide against the whole world except a small handful of close buddies

I never heard of satan murdering every first born child in a whole land in a fit of pique

I never heard of satan condoning slavery and rape and abduction and theft

All those good christian virtues are labels of the hebrew/christian/islamic god.

Exactly. To paraphrase the fundies, the greatest trick jesus ever pulled off was convincing anyone he was on the right side.

Same cast, same scripts.

<yawn>

The Producer of All Things created something beyond its control. So he let it go improv. Unfortunately the cast are all method actors.

You aren't going to create heaven on earth on this stage. Being antagonists is hardly the role of the hero.

Topix atheists are dumb.

The popcorn is stale and overpriced. The exit doors aren't marked.

Evidence has been supplied to you.

Over and over.

And over and over and over again.

You CHOOSE to ignore it.

He never pulled off that trick, if he existed at all then it was not until 300+ years after he got cross that that the trick was pulled

I know he was said to have resurrected but 300+ years is a bit if a stretch.

Stalin was no more responsible for opening churches than Obama is responsible for starting new jobs.

from whence this anger ....and , your continued replies ..." Oh , your laws your horrible , horrible laws ..!!"
