Let's tabulate the numbers of people killed due to (or in the name of) various ideologies:-
|Bolshevik Revolution:||9||Sudan civil war/Darfur (1983-2005):||2||Roman Catholic inquisition: 70|
|Communist genocide in USSR (1917-1953):||61||Armenian/Assyrian/Greek Genocide (Muslim Turks massacred Armenian "dhimmis", 1915-1923):||3|
French religious wars (1562-1598): 4
|Hitler's Holocaust:||17||Crusades:||2||Crusades: 2|
|Holodomor famine unleashed by Stalin:||8||Apostasy wars:||0.1||Thirty years war: 11|
|Abortions in China:||50||Massacre of Almoravides/Marrakesh:||0.2|
|Cambodian revolution:||3||Islamic invasions of India:||10|
|Chinese persecution of Falun Gong, Buddhists, Christians:||0.2||Massacre of Christians, Mesopotamia:||0.3||Slaughter of the Serbs (1940s): 1|
|Famine caused by Mao's Great Leap Forward (1959-1961):||43||Terrorism in the post-colonial period||0.1||Conquest of the Americas: 8 |
|Communists in Bulgaria, East Germany, Romania, Ethiopia:||1.3||Syrian Sunni v/s Shia/Alawite civil war, 2012 onwards:||1|
|Mao's land reform, suppression of counter-revolutionaries:||2||Islamic State massacres, 2014 onwards:||0.1|
|Cultural revolution in China:||2|
|Total: ||196.5||Total: 9.1||18.8||Total: 88|
The conclusion is clear: Even excluding abortion, (which atheists don't consider to be genocide), the number of people killed in the name of atheism is greater than the number killed in the name of all false religions.
"If Jesus Christ has not risen from the dead...our preaching is in vain and so is your faith...we are liars...of all men most pathetic...we might as well eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die. If Christ has not risen, why should we bother to preach to people at such peril to ourselves? Why do you think I fought beasts at Ephesus?...But now Christ has indeed risen from the dead. He has transformed me, and so the love of Christ constrains me; woe unto me if I do not preach the good news about Jesus Christ!" - paraphrased from 1 Corinthians 15:12-32, 1 Timothy 1:12-16, 1 Corinthians 9:16
Yes. Atheism teaches that humans are just an accident of evolution. So there would be nothing wrong in treating them in any way. Some clarifications are in order:-
Some well-known atheists who were willing to face up to the fact that atheism provides a moral vacuum:-
"No society has been able to reach morality without religion" - Lord Devlin, well known British lawyer, judge and jurist
"Why has government been instituted at all? Because the passions of man will not conform to the dictates of reason and justice without constraint." - Alexander Hamilton, founder father of the USA.
Yes, atheism logically leads to a moral vacuum. Only the Bible can fill this moral vacuum.
Yes, note the following:-
It is worth noting that the pioneers of evolution were not scientists. Charles Lyell was a lawyer, and Charles Darwin was a dropout from Bible College. Universities such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Oxford and Cambridge were set up as Bible colleges by Christians who wanted to promote learning. These places have been taken over by atheists. The same applies to the Scientific American Magazine, which was started by a Christian, but now dogmatically supports evolution.
There are also many more atheist truck drivers than Christian truck drivers. This does not prove anything. Atheism is more prevalent than belief in God or the Bible in the West because for the last half century, the educational system in the West has been a hub for atheist indoctrination. Also see:-
Hitler was an atheist but atheists try to pass him off as a Christian. The ammunition they have is:-
But these are just measures in political expediency. Hitler reveals his true (evolutionary/atheist) colors:-
Scottish anatomist and anthropologist Sir Arthur Keith was fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in England and a contemporary of Hitler. See his testimony:
"The German Führer ... is an evolutionist; he has consciously sought to make the practice of Germany conform to the theory of evolution." – Keith, A., 1947. Evolution and Ethics, Putman, New York, p. 229.
Even if these words of and about Hitler were not there, his actions speak for himself:-
Thus, Hitler was an atheist and he did what he did because he was an atheist. He thought that through the holocaust, he was speeding up natural selection since he considered the Jews to be inferior to Aryans (native Germans).
