The logical result of atheism, a result we have seen right in front of our eyes in one of the world's oldest and proudest nations, is severe moral decay.

So CSB:

I knew a bunch if girls who earnestly believed in the bible when I was a kid. They all went to religious schools conservative enough that half of them didn't even believe in evolution. They were honestly amazed that I though humans had evolved from primates. They also honestly believed that sex outside of marriage got them a first class ticket to hell. All that said - based on their behavior their school could have accurately been named St Mary's School for Morally Destitute Girls.

I guess if you honestly believe you're going to hell for Second Base you may as well be in for a penny in for a pound.

jigger: kidgenius: OgreMagi: Diogenes: The logical result of atheism, a result we have seen right in front of our eyes in one of the world's oldest and proudest nations, is severe moral decay.

Palin's a believer, and it did help her slide into moral decay.

Technically, the USA is older than all but two countries in Europe when you take into account how shiat got changed around from WW1 to the fall of communism.

Ummm...in no particular order

Spain
Portugal
England
France
Italy
Vatican

All are older countries than USA. Some of the Nordic countries probably qualify as do the likes of Iceland and greenland. Germany/Belgium are probably in the running too.

Dude, Italy wasn't even unified until the 1870s or thereabouts.


OK. So they were more city state than unified nation. But there were many countries older than the USA. Just changing your government doesn't mean you hit the reset button on the age of a nation.

randomjsa: Oh one of those "Agricultural Collectivism was the motivating factor behind most of these atrocities, but I'm going to blame Atheism anyway... AND I'm going to politely ignore the atrocities of Christianity or at the very least forget the fact that body count is directly proportional to technology..."

More technology means more food means more people...

More technology means better weapons that can kill lots of people...

More People + Better Methods of Mass Killing = Higher Body counts

The fact that the Christians, who I use for this example because that is what Palin is presumably, couldn't slaughter people on the same or even larger scale than the Communists would has everything to do with the time and place the Christians did their murdering.


I cannot really blame her for ignoring or more likely not knowing about the Taiping Rebellion. 20 million dead.

A change in the type of government is hitting the reset button.    For example, Germany:  Monarcy, democracy, dictatorship, then split into democacy and communist, the combined back into a democracy.

I'm reminding of this equally nonsensical line from the 1990 Dennis Hopper film "Flashback":

Oh I agree. The nation isn't the government.


Anyway, was Palin talking about the US as being one of the oldest and proudest? For a second I thought she meant China. Not only is it basically the oldest nation on Earth but mostly atheist. Not sure about the proud thing, but sure why not. But then I thought, is there "moral decline" in China?

netweavr: that's why it constantly attacks religion


So THAT's why modern evangelical Christianity teaches it's followers that the reason people don't follow their particular brand of religious belief is that they hate their God, and everything they stand for/how "successful" they are. AND why it's taught to children from a very small age that anyone who questions their belief is in league with the ultimate evil.

Thanks, netweavr, I never understood the hypocrisy of denouncing other religious for "attacking non-believers" until now!

Pol Pot wasn't an atheist.  He was a Theravada Buddhist.

gunslinger_RG: Judging by the quotes there, it seems that Atheist are amazingly powerful in America. I mean there are currently all of 0 in the house of representatives with another staggering 0 in the senate while having been able to control the executive branch all of 1 times (I count Jefferson). With that kind of clout in Washington you can bet your bottom dollar that it is going to be open season on Christianity.


don't forget about the staggering amount of atheists in the judicial branch.

They're nice people, they're just, what would you call 'em - rural? Backwoods, country? They're real nice, after a show one of these guys came up to me and said 'hey, you're great, you cracked me up, I was about to spit!' ...Sorry? He said 'no I loved it, I'd like you to meet my wife and sister.' And there was one girl standing there...not a thumb between 'em.

Pol Pot wasn't an atheist.  He was a Theravada Buddhist.


Prince Norodom Sihanouk was the former king of Cambodia from 1941 as well as Head of State from 1955 to 1970 before resigning in 1976. He once said of Pol Pot:

"Pol Pot does not believe in God but he thinks that heaven, destiny, wants him to guide Cambodia in the way he thinks it the best for Cambodia, that is to say, the worst. Pol Pot is mad, you know, like Hitler."

So since he does not believe in a God, that kind of makes him an atheist. I am atheist, too, but to say religion is what causes a human to do terrible things is a huge simplification.

Like Christians aggressively attacking gays, abortion, the poor, and anyone who does not agree with them to implement laws based on that hatred. This is directly against the Constitution.

If any more stupid could be crammed into one person she'd collapse in on herself to form a moronic black hole.

Mrs. Palin: We atheists get our moral values from observation of the world around us and empathy for our fellow man.

You get your moral values from a book  that explicitly endorses slavery.

Who has the moral high ground, again?
