Moses – The celebrated baby killing psychopath of the Bible

If someone was to include Adolf Hitler in a mini-series that portrays him as a noble and admirable man by deliberately and completely removing anything about his cruel persecution of innocent people there would be absolute outrage.

Having faith that god was with them didn’t make the Nazis virtuous people. The victims and perpetrators of terrorism both have faith.

Why be an atheist?

What religion are you? What supernaturalism do you subscribe to? What label do you choose? If you don’t pledge your allegiance to any religion or supernaturalism, you’re an atheist.
