Quote# 151

Stalin and Hitler were both greatly influenced by Darwin's theory which led them to believe there was no God, and that oppression and extinction of the inferior was inevitable anyway. That is why after the widespread publication of the NT, such mass injustices and murder slow to a trickle, and where it is removed again in Communist states, evil and oppression spread like wildfire again.

<p>Oh wait! It's just a huge coincidence that where there are no New Testaments, there is darkness, and where they are plentiful, there is "enlightenment."

I suppose you consider it a \"huge coincidence\" that the Dark Ages occurred at the peak of the Church's power and influence?

I'd like to introduce radorth to reality, but, unfortunately, I don't think they'd get along.

Stalin actually supported Lamrachian evolution. In the man's own words:

Mendeleyev's \"periodic system of elements\" clearly shows how very important in the history of nature is the emergence of qualitative changes out of quantitative changes. The same thing is shown in biology by the theory of neo-Lamarckism, to which neo-Darwinism is yielding place. (Stalin 1906, 304)

Shut up.

Just, shut up.

Stalin and Hitler were also both beaten by their fathers as children. I think that would have a lot more to do with their lack of belief than evolution (though Hitler was a Catholic and believed he was doing God's work).

Cite proof about the Bible leading to enlightenment or go away.

Huge coincidence? No, it's an outright lie.

There's been quite a few genocides in the name of Christianity too. Your point?

People do what suits them. Sometimes they use God as an excuse, sometimes political ideology, sometimes whatever.

DAMMIT. I hate hearing the fucking fallacious Stalin/Hitler argument.

ENOUGH OF THIS DUMB ARGUMENT:

I have the distinct feeling that crime rates in the GOS are higher now then they where in the Soviet Union, and that is even with Rusian mafia infiltrating the Russian Government and covering up their tracks.

So I would say .. FAIL!

I like how he went ahead and put quotes around enlightenment. It's like his subconscious is trying to tell him something...

Hitler had evolutionist books burned.

Stalin supported Lamarckist charlatan Lysenko and had dissenting scientists deported, holding back soviet agronomy and genetics for decades.

And the Enlightenment happened after we STOPPED listening to preachers.

You know, Hitler spouted weird shit that makes no sense.

The New Testaments not remotely as new as you think. Which is one reason why you Fundies always lose arguments about your own Holy Book: You've never read it, looked into it's history or questioned those who preach things not in it or contadicting it.

There's nothing that Darwin did that was needed to not believe in God, many didn't believe way before Darwin stepped on that ship and many today don't believe without ever reading Darwins book.

Hitler believed in YOUR GOD. He quoted the New Testament. Jesus is only the Son of God in the New Testament variations, he's only a prophet in the Old.

Did he just imply that the NT was only widely distributed after Hitler’s and Stalin’s reigns?

I am speechless.
