Hitler claimed he was committing genocide of the jews on behalf of the christian god.

Yep, like basing your politics on a 2000 year old book written by intolerant bigoted goatherds is such a swell idea ....
And btw, you have absolutely no idea what socialism or marxism or communism entails.

Atheism doesn't tell us to kill people anywhere, and most of us lead good lives. I think we can compromise that atheism and most parts of theism [Except for when 'God' says so, or Fair Game] do not allow killing in their name.

Oh, yeah, for a case of an atheist committing crimes as horrible as Hitler, look to Stalin.
Stalin was raised in Georgia, in a rural area. It's highly unlikely, given the environment he grew up in, that Stalin was an atheist. The Eastern Orthodox Church was nearly omni-present at that time.

Hitler was Christian. Germany was considered the most Christian nation in Europe. You had to be Christian to qualify for the SS. Stalin's atrocities were committed for political advantage and self-aggrandizement. And Communism hasn't been the boogeyman since the old Soviet Union collapsed in the 90's. Do try to keep up with things.

So those who study the environment, politics, sociology, medicine, anthropology... should have no say so? And we should just leave it up to the superstitious, demon believing, spiritually haunted zealots such as yourself?

Don't forget all the ordinary Germans who joined all the various Nazi organisations such as the SS, SA, the party itself etc etc. who actually did the dirty work. They were Christian.

What you care about is obtaining political power and suppressing the views of the religious. In other words, Marxists.
Atheists who are atheists because of their scientific viewpoints need to stick to science because their politics are childish at best
ATHEISTS ARE DIRTY COMMIES. Also their politics are childish.

a mind far far away
I like the part about the intellectual well being of society, and the civil rights of others. How well thought out. Oh wait, he's not talking about himself, he's talking about us. What a dumbfuck.

Umm..the Nazi party belt buckles said "God with us" and they were either Catholic or lutheran...try again. Hitler WAS a Christian.

Yes, politics should be left to those who think that all truth can be found in a Bronze Age mythology book. You wouldn't want people that actually study modern topics to be involved in the decision making in a modern society. No, that would be bad.
Please, please Obama move us away from the theocratic path we have been heading down. Let's rejoin the rest of the world start moving our society further again.

Double standard much?
11/10/2008 4:07:14 PM
The starting was pretty reasonable. Too bad later it became a steaming pile of whatsit.

"Christianity was a child of Judaism"
it is you know

Communist Utopia? Awesome!
PS I bet I know more about Marxism than you.

Atheist politics are childish? Atheists aren't the ones whose only criteria for a political candidate are "doesn't like abortion" and "hates gay people".
