Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't MARXists from China and the Soviet Union take opium, and, while the history of religions isn't a perfect one, and while many religious regimes like the Spanish Inquisition and the Terrorists were awful, how exactly were communist regimes any better? Did the collectivists policies of Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, Mao Zedong, and the Kim Family not cause mas starvations? Did these dictators not execute anyone and everyone they deemed to be a threat? And did these people not feel oppressed by said dictators and communists as much as many people may have felt oppressed under the church during medieval times? It's basically a case of Pick Your Poison, and you have one poison speaking out against another poison. I may be an agnostic, but I'd actually still choose religion over communism, because at least some good came out of religion to counterbalance the bad (Jesus, love for the earth, spirituality, the saints, the bodhisattvas, the spiritual masters, the shamans, etc.).
I heard he was this a few months ago, in fact on religion he mostly flips flops on his stance... which is really scary... yet at the same time, makes sense. After all, he just wants the best way to scare his people and cause a frenzy while they adore him. Sickening, sad but too true to ignore.
Now that's all I'm gonna say, I hate discussing atheism vs theism on DA. Swore that off in 2010.
im a marxist and im okay with religon, i think until ppl learn to deal with the fact that not eveyone is going to agree, we can stop droping bombs on ppl for stupid reasons like what ppl in the western and eastern hemipheres call god.
Not sure id agree there, communism and especially soviet style communism became quite similar to a religion. It wasn't the lack of religion in communism that led to its ruin, but the overwhelming religious aspect that ruined the Soviets...
There is no case of a human civilization that did too much rational and logical inquiry and resulted in famine and poverty.
