HOME   People do good because they are human, not because they are religious! 

Do not give God any credit for the good they do, they did it!

 

The No True Atheist argument

Atheist: Atheists do not condone evil. They do not have people murdered for atheism does not require murder.
 
Christian: But what about the likes of Mao who said they were atheists and who facilitated genocide of innocent people?
 
Atheist: But they were not real atheists at all.
 
So we have a form of the ridiculous and fallacious No True Scotsman argument.

The argument should be:

Atheist: Atheists do not condone evil. They do not have people murdered for atheism does not require murder.
 
Christian: But what about the likes of Mao who said they were atheists and who facilitated genocide of innocent people?
 
Atheist: But they were not acting as real atheists at all when they killed. They did not say, "I will kill because I do not believe in God."

There is nothing wrong with that argument.
