It is clearly false to say that religion has caused more deaths than anything else in history because it hasn’t, this is fact. But it is equally false when theists claim that all the major conflicts are somehow caused by atheism. They point to Hitler and Stalin being atheists. But their argument fails because both Hitler and Stalin did not start wars due to atheist beliefs, World War 2 was not fought in the name of atheism. After some research, I have failed to find a single war which has been fought due to atheist beliefs. Wars started by atheists does not mean they are atheist wars. This would make about as much sense as claiming a war started by the US is a Christian war purely because it had a Christian president. Unless the war is fought in the name of a religion or atheism, then it cannot be a religious or atheist war. But unlike religion which can be attributed to warfare, no wars are fought in the name of atheism.
Go ahead and tell me one war started by atheism.. go ahead... :/
I am going to have to pick this one since I can't think of any.
As far as reality is concerned, not really.
There are NO WARS fought in the name of atheism.
Stalin was responsible for the deaths of 20 million people Mao Tse Dung was responsible for the deaths of 45 million people What do these 2 mass murderers have in common? They were both Atheists that hated religion and sought to destroy by any means necessary.
WWI & WW2
