The movement of new atheism in our time is counting on the miseducation and lack of historical knowledge of the masses so they can gain popularity and maybe, possibly, acquire political power. However, since atheists have left a stream of blood coursing through the annals of history, it is not that difficult to uncover what happens when atheists bear rule.

One of our earliest examples is the French Revolution. In public grade schools and universities, this revolution is often glamorized as the poor, downtrodden common folk rising up to dethrone their oppressors the aristocrats and the monarchy. That is only a small portion of what happened. The French Revolution was greatly influenced by atheists who flooded French society with their atheist ideals. These were men such as the Marquis de Sade (from whom we get the concept of sadism and the postmodern liberal views for abortion on demand), Voltaire, Rousseau, and Diderot.

RobespierreAlthough these men and their resulting revolutionaries claimed they were for the common people and against the arrogant aristocrats, during their Reign of Terror which came on the heels of their revolution, they murdered 300,000 people under Robespierre by the guillotine. Of those murdered, 297,000 (the vast majority) were middle class and peasants. Countless others were tortured and murdered by them using other merciless means during that period.

The Reign of Terror became one of Karl Marx’s inspirations, as he expressed in his letters to his friend Engels. And the 20th century witnessed a virtual bloodletting as a result of Marx’s liberal atheist progressive followers. We are all familiar with the atrocities of Lenin and his Bolsheviks, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge, and the Kims of North Korea. But they are just the tip of the atheist killing machine that left a sea of red in the last century.

Writer Thomas Beale, aka Vox Day, has discovered the following in his research:

…twenty-eight historical regimes have been ruled by eighty-nine atheists, of whom more than half have engaged in democida [death by government] acts of the sort committed by Stalin and Mao …

The total body count for the ninety years between 1917 and 2007 is approximately 148 million dead at the bloody hands of fifty-two atheists, three times more than all the human beings killed by war, civil war, and individual crime in the entire twentieth century combined.

The historical record of collective atheism is thus 182,716 times worse on an annual basis than…the Spanish Inquisition…

That’s also much worse than the Crusades, which are falsely attributed to Christians. Among the well-known atheists mentioned above, were the lesser known atheist murderers who used the Choybalsanliberalism of socialist systems for bloodshed like Choibalsan of Mongolia(pictured to the left), Ceausescu of Romania, Mengistu of Ethiopia, Mussolini of Italy, and Bierut of Poland.

When the late author/historian Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was asked why Russia suffered with millions of deaths under the Bolshevik Revolution and its resulting Communism, he knew the answer right away from listening to his elders as a child, “I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: ‘Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.'” And when men forget God, the basest, most disgusting, and most callous of human behaviors always rises to the surface as is proven by how atheists have behaved since the late 1700s.
