Wake up by Starlow-FTW Wake up by Starlow-FTW
Josef Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, Mao ZeDong, Kim Jong Il, enough said.

Wake up, people! Every group in existence has bloody history. Christians have the crusades, Muslims have today, Atheists have Asia, Jews have the time in the Roman Empire, and so on! Come on, people!

Do you know why these monsters use Christianity, or atheism, or what have you, to do what they do? Because that is their shield! Their cover. What authority would the pope in the middle ages have if he didn't brainwash the people under some fallacy that he was God's representative?

Atheists can be good people. Christians can be bad people. That's the reality. Can't we all just get along? Clowns like those examples come to power when people forget that I, a Christian, have blood just as red as an atheist's, or a Jew's, or a Muslim's.

You have been educated. Keep the applause to yourself. :lol: I'm terrible.

I've never really ever heard of anyone using their non belief as a shield though.

The communists in russia weren't doing things in the name of atheists, infact they had a sort of dogmatic association with the state, and that's sort of where it all went wrong.

I Can't point to any time in history where people went around murdering in the name of not believing on god.

Ever.

I keep hearing that same argument but... it's just not true.  The communist parties in those nations needed atheism because the state could not allow a force like religion to govern the lives of their people rather than the state.  It's a matter of allegiance.  There's absolutely no practical difference between that and the papacy burning "heretics" at the stake or declaring war on the Muslim world.  Absolutely none.  Any difference is purely semantic.

It was an allegiance to the state, not non belief.    You can't really pledge allegiance to a stance on a question on whether or not you believe in something.  So the communists were all about allegiance to the stat, and it was just the opposite off the same coin of facism.  Emphasis on state power.

Nobody argues that communist russia was a bad thing but atheism has less to do with it than you seem to think.  It doesn't even matter.

It doesn't excuse the shit that religion gets away with.

It's not a semantic matter either, because it's complicated.  Grey areas.

You have really black and white viewpoints.  Don't you think that's unwise?

Every human on this planet has done horrendous things and they all point fingers at each other. It will go on until humans' time is up. (Yes, people no species lasts forever.) Hopefully the new species won't be so stupid about everything.

Last time I checked... the human race has done some pretty shitty things... and quite a bit of it doesn't have to do with religion. If everyone was an atheist, then we'd just find something else to kill each other over :iconlooolplz:. As human beings, we ALWAYS find stupid reasons to start war and religion is only one of many. Sure, let's get rid of religion only to kill each other over racism :iconderpplz:.

When people say "you can do no wrong in the name of atheism because it's a lack of belief," that's another way of saying "I can't force my nonbeliefs on you"

Last time I checked, you can be a pain in the ass about not believing something too.


It's like how some (not all) hipsters act pretentious because they don't follow things that are popular.

I never understood why there's a distinction between a lack of belief and having no belief.  Atheism is the lack of belief in a god; isn't saying that atheism is the belief that there is no god just the same concept put into different words?  Therefore, wouldn't it be true to say that atheism is a belief as is any religion?  Maybe you can shed some light on that.
