"Partly in response, partly also to get more discussions on this group going... I'm not a graduate but just starting out. I came in with the idea of a major in Cultural Anthropology, but it's looking like Archaeology is just as much a…"

""but because he understands how to control people." That's always been my take on Hilter. He was said to be a closet atheist but always mentions religion in speeches and in Mein Kampft. I tend to believe he did so as a means of…"

"Hilter's atheism has always been controversial. Fact is, we can't ask him so we don't know. His writings and public speeches have many Roman Catholic references in them and my go to prove his theism, but according to "inside…"

"While I don't think Hitler and Mussolini were atheists, here is how I explain this point. These tyrannical regimes were not theocracies, but they were 'cults of personality', wherein the leaders were basically treated as Gods, and to…"

"Very good advice to follow,Anette. I do not think I can improve upon that, so I will use their own ignorance against them. Hitler was a vegetarian, therefore all vegetarians are evil and should not be trusted. See how silly that sounds? That is…"

stalin, mussolini, and hitler

I was recently confronted by theists on the issue of an apparent lack of morality when it comes to atheists. They cited Stalin, Mussolini, and Hitler.I know that Hilter is a controversial one, b/c you can't really prove it one way or the other. But the other two, I couldn't comment on.My initial response was to number these 3 individuals against the many Islamic/Christian jihadists/crusaders, etc. And then to consider the difference between the number of people (the loving and merciful) God…See More
