The Fallacy of the “20th Century Atheist Regimes”

Quote 

Mike Moore1 day ago

Ban all dogmatic viewpoints? The 20th century is a century which clearly demonstrated that atheistic ideologies such as Soviet and Chinese communism chose to commit at least as much atrocity as the religious ones did.

And seems once-again, we see exactly same thing aired,  on the very next ex brethren story too .

Deaths caused by atheism far outnumbers deaths caused by religion. case in point Communist / Atheist Russia deaths estimated between 20 and 60 MILLION people.

Atheism as such wasn’t the cause of these deaths – it was the replacement of one set of dogma (religion) with another (Communism) in an attempt to control the population. Lack of belief in any gods by itself doesn’t lead to atrocities, whereas the Bible positively encourages them.

Cloudboy, even if we accept those millions weren’t killed by atheism, they also weren’t killed by religion. The number of deaths attributable to religion are dwarfed by those attributable to other causes such as communism.
Also, the bible does not encourage atrocities. If it did I’d expect to see far more atrocities given the number of Christians in the world.

But i have yet to feel i have seen even one of these ex brethren whom is able to offer-up any real decent argument,so as to “explain” reasons for exactly why they should think this. Or describe how they can make these conclusion
It almost seem like perhaps many of these folk have never even stopped to consider to pay that side of matters , “all that much attention”.Even the educated ones.Yep. It’s like, why bother? to care about the finer details of such matters, when it often just feels far-easier to decide to just continue to have faith in “some things” that folk around you have always “traditionally” told ya
After all. These folks have now been pretty much “spoon fed” on this kind of stuff, from cradle unto their grave.A favorite church-mantra that is constantly passed back and forth “among” the faithful throng. It’s always been their main favorite weapon too to drag out as “proof” of exactly why atheism cannot ever be considered as being any real answer
But as you can see, after reading the quotes above, that the stumbling block soon arrives for these faithful folk .At the very moment that someone has asked them to first supply some “good reason” for their faith
It’s like they are suddenly lost for words.Especially the “educated” ones. Lost for words.Baffled by one simple request -> “an explanation of reasoning behind your faith”
I mean to say. Surely some of these type folk should ? easily be able to quickly supply us with some real good reasons as explanations for why they believe? what they believe
That would seem to be a fair-expectation of these kind of folk .
That is unless ? … Unless ? the real explanation for this kind of phenomena, is that their belief is also still actually a far more of a faith-based kind of belief
ostrich
And mostly they dont even bother to ask themselves about such questions.Far more easy to just keep their biased church-bred view of with-whom atheists should be compared
Which would help explain why so many theist can tend to continually make themselves look kind of like a bunch of beached whales too. All completely lost for words, and publicly seen to be floundering about and acting completely-lost within actual good reasons for their faith.
Below, i have included two links to a couple of other people’s opinions (explained far better than i’m able to) in regards to the atheist=communist fallacy
Not that that all that many christian folk are ever likely? to still even dare allow themselves to actually really-consider any other alternative opinion. For had they bothered, (lets face it)then they might also be armed and ready to quickly be able to supply good reasons and explanations too, for all these “misguided” church-taught belief of theirs

Another thing . Notice how Christian folk are often so predictable.Like , check out the phenomena of the very same usual Christian-ly  “deleteing/excommunication” of any folks comments whom they dont even like to need to hear . You can plainly see the evidence of it on these Stuff co.Nz ex brethren stories . The same kind of “ecommunicating” kind of evidence seen also on wikipeebia as well too of late , where one ex eb is busy with trying to cut another ex eb (Fisherman) right out of the conversation . Plain old usual flavor of religious tyranny at play.

Meanwhile some of these same type ex eb folk is still busy with their shouting out to society, about how lucky they-are and how-good they now feel, to finally now be “free” from any cult-like mentalities

Sorry .But sometimes i just feel the need to really force myself, to at least make sure i can try and still see a funny side to this whole horrid sad situation

Lets face it. They surely seem to have some real gems among their throng. Dont they ?

Like .Take this one here too for another example

God made man, not the other way round. Atheism is pure arrogance.

Oh sure .

And yet most evidence seem to suggest that indeed in every single incidence, it is infact men that makes their own idea of God. And we see how ideas about God,can be seen to have slowly evolved alongside an evolving-mind of man too. And the holy books themselves also record prime evidence of this phenomena

 

We can tell this to be so .Simply by act of comparing exactly how many different man made ideas, that there is about the idea of Gods. Yes “Gods”

 

Not that Mista Reality , would bother? to contemplate or consider, the pretty good possibility that his own thoughts might in fact more fittingly? consist of some rather huge amounts of pure arrogance

 

Because lets be honest and face it Mista Reality. Fact is that any actual scientific evidence for God, is still so bloody scarce for anyone to ever actually even come by for-sure, that it still continue to remain (and even unto this year 2016) about as scarce as what rocking horse shit also is for anyone to actually  find

Yep

And know this. That this is in fact still the realistic “Reality” of this situation Mista

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
