Allow me to rain on your birthday cake...
Atheism is responsible for mass murders: myth.
In order for something to take blame it must cause it.
Atheism adopts no set of moral beliefs,
Atheists are individually accountable for their moral convictions.
When an atheist, like Stalin, Mayo, and Pot-head, does something, THEY ARE TO BLAME, not atheism.
Not all atheists share the moral convictions that murder is good (identifying the differences of moral convictions).
Atheism does not create a motive to murder.
"I do not believe god exists, I should start killing people",
Is a statement you will never hear because there is EMPTY REASONING there.
"I should kill people because I need power, I'm sadistic, god said so, ..."
Are the kinds of reasons someone would kill;
Because there are reasons people kill does not make atheism accountable because atheism did not supply the reason to kill.
Example: Atheism has as much to do with any actions does the color of one's skin.
If you looked at the prison population and saw that black americans make up the highest percentage, is being black to blame?
Atheism = communism as much as all vegetables are turnips, from Soviet Russia.
Atheism, the lack of belief god exists, is not a government or responsible for any government...
As you can see I've demonstrated this above.
So if you look at history:
Atheism = 0 killed
Joseph Stalin - over 40,000,000 killed
Mao - over 40,000,000 killed
Sung - over 1,600,000 killed
First off, I'm not going to debate on whether or not Hitler were atheist, he was simply motivated by his madness.
Secondly, it is a disgrace to the 600,000,000+ victims of the holocaust to use his murders for propaganda.
Truth has been seen
