an atheist viewpoint

thoughts from a non-theist

So Fucking What?

“Some of the most murderous, evil people in history were atheists, as godlessness knows no bounds. Stalin and Hitler are two good examples.”

And?

Even if this were true, which it isn’t in the case of the Roman Catholic Adolf Hitler, what point is Joe trying to make here? ‘Some of the most murderous, evil people in history’ happened to be Christians, or Jews, or Muslims, or practically any other faith you can think of, but their beliefs are utterly irrelevant when it comes to what they did.

See, Joe, even if every last atheist who had ever lived was a murderous, insane, psychopath, it wouldn’t effect whether or not YHWH exists. And even if every single Christian who ever existed was a fucking saint, it wouldn’t provide a single shred of evidence that Jesus lived, and was the Son of a god.

Joe’s argument is sadly typical of the sort of thinking a lot of theists indulge in, attacking individuals rather than providing any positive evidence for their extraordinary claims about their gods.

  1. It's when believers pretend that those who believe do wrong that they aren't real believers that the whole thing becomes unstuck. Believing in their stupid god type things doesn't mean people are likely to be less evil.

  2. Agreed it's irrelevant and silly thing to say. Man is the weak link not faith or religion (or lack thereof).

  3. The conclusion is clear. Humans are murderers. Beliefs are irrelevant to that fact. The writer of this wonderful statement murders the facts but that's it.

  5. Hitler, while not a xian, I believe, did use xianity's history of anti-semitism to get the german people to back him up. For more info, see my thread here, esp. the second post.By the way, I deleted my last post because of a really bad snogging spelling error.

  6. It has been pointed out time and time again that Hitler was *NOT* an Atheist, but the interesting thing is, the REAL thing Stalin and Hitler have in common is the letter 'o' in their first name, oh, look, so does jOe LOL

  7. Mex, you're just trying to suppress the truth (probably in unrighteousness) that it was the moustaches that made these men so evil.

Write what you like, but don't cry if you act like a dick and get banned for it
