O'Reilly fails again. Hitler was a theist! But he was a self-contradicting theist atheist type of theist. Get it, Mr. O'Reilly?! For instance, Hitler said [Hitler's Table Talk (Adolf Hitler, London, Weidenfeld & Nicholson, 1953)],
"National Socialism and religion cannot exist together....
"The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity. Bolshevism is Christianity's illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew. The deliberate lie in the matter of religion was introduced into the world by Christianity....
"Let it not be said that Christianity brought man the life of the soul, for that evolution was in the natural order of things." (p 6 & 7)
"Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure." (p 43)
"The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death.... When understanding of the universe has become widespread... Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity....
"Christianity has reached the peak of absurdity.... And that's why someday its structure will collapse....
"...the only way to get rid of Christianity is to allow it to die little by little....
"We'll see to it that the Churches cannot spread abroad teachings in conflict with the interests of the State." (p 49-52)
"The reason why the ancient world was so pure, light and serene was that it knew nothing of the two great scourges: the pox and Christianity."
"Originally, Christianity was merely an incarnation of Bolshevism, the destroyer....
"The decisive falsification of Jesus'
doctrine was the work of St.Paul. He gave himself to this work... for the purposes of personal exploitation....
"Didn't the world see, carried on right into the Middle Ages, the same old system of martyrs, tortures, faggots? Of old, it was in the name of Christianity. Today, it's in the name of Bolshevism. Yesterday the instigator was Saul: the instigator today, Mardochai. Saul was changed into St.Paul, and Mardochai into Karl Marx. By exterminating this pest, we shall do humanity a service of which our soldiers can have no idea." (p 63-65)
And this is my favorite part:
"Christianity is an invention of sick brains: one could imagine nothing more senseless, nor any more indecent way of turning the idea of the Godhead into a mockery....
LOL! Hey Hitler is beginning to sound like Brian Sapient there, huh? But Hitler also said,
"Kerrl, with noblest of intentions, wanted to attempt a synthesis between National Socialism and Christianity. I don't believe the thing's possible, and I see the obstacle in Christianity itself....
"Pure Christianity-- the Christianity of the catacombs-- is concerned with translating Christian doctrine into facts. It leads quite simply to the annihilation of mankind. It is merely whole-hearted Bolshevism, under a tinsel of metaphysics." (p 119 & 120)
"There is something very unhealthy about Christianity." (p 339)
"It would always be disagreeable for me to go down to posterity as a man who made concessions in this field. I realize that man, in his imperfection, can commit innumerable errors-- but to devote myself deliberately to errors, that is something I cannot do. I shall never come personally to terms with the Christian lie."
"Our epoch in the next 200 years will certainly see the end of the disease of Christianity.... My regret will have been that I couldn't... behold
." (p 278)
So, this is all proof that Adolf Hitler was a theist, okay? But an atheist sort of theist.
Also, the SS had "Gott mitt uns" (God with us) on their belt buckles!
And many founding fathers were not Christians. Even though they wanted Christian philosophy. But again, they were deist type of Christians. No contradictions there, folks.
Anyway, this was not a debate, people. It was an interview even though Bill O'Reilly never really asked Dawkins any questions about evolution or his best-selling book. O'Reilly did nothing but challenge Dawkins. That's an interview, people. Not a debate. And I think Richard Dawkins did pretty good. Especially the part where he said "we're working on it" when he couldn't admit where the world came from. That's the best darn argument I ever heard! All hail, Dicky Dawkins! The interview was only 5 minutes though.
Stalin did not kill because of his atheism. He wanted to have complete control (like so many atheists like Pol Pot and Mao Zedong). So Stalin wanted to get rid of anything that was already controlling people... like religion. We here at Rational Response Squad also want to get rid of anything that is already controlling people. We want complete control over religion. And, yes, we're atheists like Stalin. But before you think we're being just like Stalin, think twice! We're not, okay? This all makes sense if you were an atheist.
Stalin killed people because of his hunger for control and power, not his atheism. We at Rational Response Squad want control and power over religion so it won't screw up our society. But again, we're not like atheists like Stalin. See how consistent and well thought out we are?
Dawkins totally and utterly wasted Bill when he said:
"...Hitler and Stalin both had mustaches, but we don't say it was their mustaches that made them evil."But we do say Christians have theism, and it is because theism that make them evil. No double standard there. See, Dawkins was a genius.
Bill got pwned and so he tried to play it off with a laugh.
Short interview, but I enjoyed watching it.
