Second from left, we see that Benjamin Linus was not telling the truth about his origin, and that like Richard Alpert he too had been given the gift of everlasting life.


Linus ain't they only person I noted in this shot, my uncle and me it seems in 1941. Sure one of my other uncle was killed in Normandy, but what is family for, right?

Plus that picture was taken with an iPad right, so it must be fake.

Louisiana_Sitar_Club:

The guy who sneaks in front of you and grabs your parking spot is an arsehole. I'm not saying Hitler never did that too though. He could have and if he did, he'd be an arsehole. The guy at Target last night could of been Hitler. What were we talking about?


I dunno. If you gave Parking Spot Taker the ability to kill whoever he wanted with no consequence to him, he might surprise you. Some people just suck, but you don't get to see the full depth of the suckiness until you give one of them power.

This.

And judging from the brown uniforms this was a party bash, not a military event.

What's important here is to figure out how to blame this on the political party I do not agree with.

Well, Hitler tried that, or something close to it, in 1944, and this town called Bastogne in Belgium got to play host to the 101st Airborne for Christmas as a result.

No pictures of the speech by Reichsleiter Kris Kringle? He even overrode Hitler's instructions and delivered gilts to the English! OK, it was by V2, and it didn't work out too well. But it's the thought that counts!

Tatarize: Hitler was Christian. He was Catholic with strong Lutheran leanings. Luther pretty much wrote the entire outline for the holocaust in "The Jews and Their Lies." His version also included some ahistorical nonsense that said that Jesus was Aryan and not Jewish. It's a bit like that White Jesus who is very popular throughout most of Europe and America but they took it seriously along with a holocaust-denier's worth of really bad counterfactual historical claims to make it seem true. Hitler at one point compared himself to Moses taking his people to the promised land without being able to see it himself. -- The Hitler Table talks are mostly a hoax, the only translation we typically get in English is a fraud and adjusted by some crazy french guy.


There is a difference between being baptized a Catholic as a child and being a practicing Catholic as an adult. There is more than enough evidence that Hitler has turned is back on religion completely by the time he took over Germany.
 
2012-12-20 05:55:37 PM
Well, we know he didn't make it to the history books by exchanging presents.
 
2012-12-20 05:56:34 PM

DreamSnipers: Hitler may or may not have been a Christian. However he was an ardent propagandist. Ruling a nation with a population that is Christian, a skillful propagandist plays the religious card. He has a good meal and provides some photographers some opportunities to take shots of him in front of a Christmas tree. If he wasn't a Christian, he certainly did some far more cynical actions than posing for Yule photos.


This....has more or less been my theory over the years.

/not that I went out of my way to research it or anything.

TeamVanHelsing: Hitler wasn't a Christian or an atheist. It bugs me when people try to push him into the opposite corner to connect him to the philosophy they're arguing against. He is not an example of the evils of religion or atheism; he was just an arsehole.


It wouldn't matter which he was. Unless you believe that being either of those things magically makes you a good person.

And their military-industrial complex came up with the coolest stuff, like V-2's, jet fighters, rocket planes, etc. Bloody shame all that was done in the service of monstrous evil. Dammit, Hitler, why couldn't you have just taken over Russia and not mess around with the Genocide/Race war crap.? Jeez, you could have been cool...

What? You cynics out there doubt that Hitler was really a Christian and was just going through the motions to pander to all the Germanic folks who were Catholic or Lutheran?

Wow, what an interesting proposition. You may as well say that Bush (Senior and Shrub), Dick Cheney, Romney, Obama, and all the rest are a bunch of power-mad megalomaniacs who only pretend to be Christian to pander to the dumb retarded voters out there who are too farking naive to realize that they're being manipulated. For shame...

BTW, it makes me want to scheissen in my Lederhosen at the simpletons who think that Hitler was a hard-core Christian *or* a hard-core atheist. From what I read on him, I get the impression that he was into some sort of occult Teutonic neo-paganism--Wagnerian opera stuff with fat Brunhildes on horseback, that kind of stuff. If you read up on the SS, they were heavily into runic characters, deaths'-heads, and that whole German pagan mythology.

Yeah, I don't know what got into me. It's not like "pretend to follow the religion of the folks you want to subjugate so that they think your rule is the Will of God" is part of the ol' Machiavellian playbook or something.

Seriously, why are so damn many True Believers so farking stupid? They can't seem to grasp that just because somebody says they follow Jeebus doesn't always mean the *actually* follow Jeebus. One of the reasons the Nigerian 419 scam is so effective is that the Nigerian Minister of Finance always states in his e-mails that God told him to contact John Q. Bumblefark directly, and Mr. Bumblefark is so delusional that he never considers that the Minister of Finance could be lying...

StoPPeRmobile: I think most of them are lying, to themselves and others.


I think that True Believers in general are lying to themselves.

Consider this: the ultimate goal of Christianity is to be united with Jeebus in Heaven. Read through the New Testament, and it's screamingly obvious that Jeebus was very, very anti-materialistic (e.g. the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus) and Christianity is ultimately a death cult. Really, this world is supposedly a 'vale of tears' that's only meant to punish humanity for Original Sin and we don't really start living until we're dead.

If I knew with absolute certainty that I was only a heartbeat away from a never-ending Cosmic Disneyland where I'd be a billion trillion times better off than any Earthly billionaire, I would run, not walk, to the nearest tall building and joyously fling myself off knowing that I'll be with Jeebus forever in a few moments.

Even if suicide were a sin that would keep a person out of Heaven, I would probably keep a loose grip on my life anyways as Heaven is the ultimate goal. I'd probably take Jeebus seriously when he told the Rich Young Man to 'go sell all that thou hast and come follow me'--if I were truly convinced that I'd be a quadrillionaire in Heaven, I think I could endure a mere three-score-and-ten years of poverty as an itinerant preacher. And if God did let me starve to death, well that just means I'd get into Heaven quicker. And, of course, I'd preach in the nastiest parts of the world knowing full well that if I'm martyred, I'd get to Heaven quicker.

At the very, very, very least, I'd probably rejoice if I ever found out that I had a terminal illness. I'd spend the last few weeks of my life dancing with joy that I'm soon going home to see Jeebus forever.

So, why do True Believers seem to cling to life just as passionately as any atheist, even more so? Is it that, deep down, they really don't think there's a Heaven waiting for them on the other end of the coffin? I've posed this question many times, and about the only half-baked answer True Believers can seem to come up with is that they'd miss their Earthly family. OK, I'll accept that--if they're under 50. If they're over 50, they presumably have more family members waiting for them in Heaven than they have here on Earth.

And that's just one of the many bits of hypocrisy that's convinced me that most True Believers doubt their faith deep down...
