One of the things that I already mentioned was that atheism has been the single greatest destructive force.
But, what do I mean by that?
Well you’ve heard this mantra, that somehow — “Religion has caused more deaths than anything else.” Have you heard this phrase? I used to hear it all the time when I was an atheist. And I used to advance it.
Except for the fact that it’s exactly the opposite.
In fact religion, if anything, was the one thing that saved the planet from dramatic murder and mayhem. Atheism, by contrast, was the greatest single destroyer of all things. Atheism, through fascism and communism, both of which were premised entirely on atheism and godlessness, killed tens of millions of people in World War II and another 50 million since the end of World War II. All because of communism and fascism.
Every single country that has employed godlessness has a central tenant of its governing principle had ended up with gulags and concentration camps. There has been no exception. There has been no GOOD atheist country. By contrast, countries that have truly adopted the notion of God as a central figure — and I’m not necessarily talking about a theocracy — those tend to thrive. America being the best example. Israel being another example.
There are many such countries that understand that a principle basis for the success of civilization and their country is God in the middle of it. But once you take God out of the equation — anything goes.
Now you don’t have to believe me. The truth is, history proves me right time and time again.
Whether is Pol Pot, Mao, Hitler, Stalin, you name it. We go through it in my main chapter in Atheism Kills called “Murder By The Numbers”. That chapter shows you the multitudes of millions of people slaughtered in the name of atheism. Maybe not specifically as atheists, but atheism was the central operating system of both fascism and communism.
Nothing that religion has ever done, can ever compete with what atheism has given us.
