again, for thoughts sake, dont get butthurt.

Why do many believers insist on repeatedly pointing
to the crimes of 20th century dictators who led
officially atheistic societies as some sort of evidence
of their god' s existence? It makes no sense,
If the rivers of blood on Stalin' s hands and Mae' s
hands, for example, are supposed to prove there is a
god, then what do the oceans of bleed on the hands
of several thousand years' worth of religious kings,
queens, presidents, Popes, priests, generals,
Crusaders, jihadists, and tribal chiefs prove? It' s not,
of course, but if bodycount is somehow the measure
of a god' s likelihood of existence, then believers lose
It is clear that humans are quite capable of killing with
or without images of gods bouncing around in their
heads. If anything, , history suggests that the
concept of gods makes the idea of massacring your
Mew man (and wemen and children, too, of course)
a lot easier to act upon.

If a christian is using Stalin and Mao Zedong to try and label atheists as natural mass murderers, they're failing at arguing. The only purpose of citing them is proving, as you noted, that humans don't need a god to kill for them.

Nuts are going to be nuts, but most of the atrocities atheists cite are because people gave absolute power without checks to a group. Bad things happen when you do that, it doesn't matter if their god is the god of abraham or the flying spaghetti monster.

That's absolutely true and considering the first commandment says " thou shalt not kill " there's an awful lot of religious figures going straight to hell .

Oh boy another ****************** post about religion, as if FJ hasnt already had enough of these posts.

Why can't we just post funny?

Really? I find these funny, and seeing as they keep getting to the front page, so do a majority of Funnyjunkers. It's called democracy. It doesn't always work in reality (North Carolina, anyone?), but it's how this site is ruled. If you don't like it, go to 9gag. They'll sympathize with your dislike for what the majority find funny.

They look and think different from me. They need to die, right now.

Eh. the entire concept of natural selection means if i kill my neighbor than i am simply a superior creature removing defective genes from the gene pool. if that logic doesn't make it easy to justify killing i dont know what does.

yeah but then you would scare otherpeople and disgust them with murder so they would kill you to defend themselves, therfore you are not superior

Not true. Humanity is not a species in which the most powerful are the best. In fact, intelligence is our thing. We are one of the weakest species in regards to every single thing besides for intelligence. Because of this, the most important people in society should be the smartest, not the strongest. Of course, the unintelligent will rally together, and the idiots always outnumber the intelligent (as the best are always rarer than the worst) leading to the dumbasses getting in power while the geniuses are brushed to the side by the slobbering masses.

I swear, funnyjunk has become full of Christfags who shove their religion down other people's throats and Atheistfags who shove Their **** down their throat. Sure Atheism is based on facts, but shouting them at people who already have a way of life that they like is not intelligence, it's called "being a ******* prick". Atheists have killed just as many people as extremists have over the history of the world: Religion has absolutely NOTHING to do with insanity.
