Actually we already went over that. Short memory?
I am actually pointing out the last few pages of you asking for proof without having properly refuted the proof against your claims in the the OP.
Like the fact that Stalin allowed the church back into the USSR or the fact that the native american populations were decimated long before social
Darwinism even existed.
So the atheist Stalin (we agree on that) killed millions in the name of communism, a political agenda based on atheism not religion (we agree on
that), then accepted the Orthodox church to control the population he couldnt.
The Soviet Union was the first state to have as an ideological objective the elimination of religion. Toward that end, the Communist regime
confiscated church property, ridiculed religion, harassed believers, and propagated atheism in the schools. Actions toward particular religions,
however, were determined by State interests, and most organized religions were never outlawed. Orthodox priests and believers were variously tortured,
sent to prison camps, labour camps or mental hospitals, and executed. Many Orthodox (along with people of other faiths) were also subjected to
psychological punishment or torture and mind control experimentation in order to force them give up their religious convictions.
Thousands of churches and monasteries were taken over by the government and either destroyed or converted to secular use. It was impossible to build
new churches. Practising Orthodox Christians were restricted from prominent careers and membership in communist organizations (the party, the
Komsomol). Anti-religious propaganda was openly sponsored and encouraged by the government, which the Church was not given an opportunity to publicly
respond to. The government youth organization, the Komsomol, encouraged its members to vandalize Orthodox Churches and harass worshippers. Seminaries
were closed down, and the church was restricted from using the press.
Also in 1927 the Russian orthodox church was subjected to communist authority. The atheists allowed the church providing they the atheists became the
spiritual leaders. Wikipedia.
Hypocrisy much, atheists controlling the church. Stalin used the church to promote nationalism and the war effort. It was an atheist puppet church.
The Indian population were decimated after Darwin released his book. Check your history. If the Indian population was decimated before the book, why
was the war still being fought?
The book was used to justify wholesale slaughter in the Indian wars and then the starvations and genocide. Prior to that their were issues with
killing peaceful people. You research it, I have a life and educating you is not part of it
Go read the link, go research.
The same genocide actions happened worldwide after Darwin released his book.
I am not suggesting every atheist is a terrorist
Atheist terrorists are as bad as any other religious extremist
