    The killing wasn't in the name of atheism however. So even if these people turned out to really be atheists, that is nothing more than coincidence. The atheism didn't enable the action, it had nothing to do with it. People were being killed in the name of the State. It was the Communist government which was the enabler. Nothing can challenge the State, so tyrannical Communism (the only one known to exist) adopts militant anti-theism to remove even the supernatural threats to State power.

    To be honest, I don't really blame religion for a lot of wars either. Most of the wars fought in the name of some gods aren't fought because those are the mandates of the religion or teachings of the religion. Often times the religion is abused, twisted and warped by the leaders of the region so that they may energize the people into thinking the war is just and grand and needing to be fought. But the root cause is almost always the same; money, power, and/or land. Those are usually the main enablers of war. Human greed, if you want to blame anything blame that. Our greed is immense, and it is all consuming at times, it enables us to do some horrible horrible things.

    I love how asking you to prove your claim that "atheist communists killed more people in the last century (100+ million) " is a "slippery slope".

    It isn't so much of a coincidence as a tenet of communism to eliminate religion, people with no faith are less prone to fight back and settle for being allowed to survive, which is why communism seeks to eliminate faith, it does so by perverting atheism.

    Pretty much the way I feel about it as well.

    It's not atheism, it's anti-theism. The two are very different.

    Please provide some source to back your claim that people without religion are less likely to fight oppressors then those with a religion.

    true, but it was packaged as atheism and used to advance communism, which is my point.

    It's not my theory, it's written into communist thinking. Ask one of them for a source.
