You Get your Morality from the Bible
"Good" is a subjective concept. Atheists are generally raised within Christian cultured societies (although the majority of the worlds atheists are in China where that morality is highly questionable) so concepts of "good" and "bad" are generally speaking, non foundational. Inconsistent with the worldview of naturalism. In this attempt at mockery, It presents a highly misconstrude concept of Christian morality, as the common atheistic dismisall presumption goes "you get your morality from a book".
Nope... and neither do Christians claim that. They believe in an objective moral law, because they believe in an objective moral law giver. That every human being (yes EVERY) is made in God's image with an innate moral compass which the atheist equally posses. But atheistic foundations of morality (to defiine the terms good and bad) have yet to have a solid grounding
You're only a Christian because Your Parents were Christian
For a lot of people, regardless of where they come from. This is no doubt that parenting and culture play a huge influencial factor in deciding your belief of the child. It's just a matter of fact, but this happens regardless of belief system, whether it be Christian or Atheist or indeed any other set of beliefs. I am personally a Christian with non Christian parents, in fact my household consists of a mocking attitude to any religion (a backgroound that neither cares nor seeks), the same is true for my culture.
If someone is a Christian, it is someting atheists would openly mock so there isn't a culture sustaining it. Everyone has different reasons but for me, I became a Chrristian first and foremost for intellectual reasons after evaluating the evidence and second, spiritually. For a lot of people it can be the opposite or either/or. I would have actually preferred to have found God the opposite route. This argument is quite tiring and lacks substance
We're all Born Atheists
This has actually been studied extensively, including the largest and most extensive research project undertaken on human psychology. Oxford invested over £1.9 million over a period of 3 years in over 20 countries in over 40 separate studies to find out whether human beings we're predisposed believers or not.
The "New research finds that humans have natural tendencies to believe in gods and an afterlife. Research suggests that people across many different cultures instinctively believe that some part of their mind, soul or spirit lives on after-death. The studies demonstrate that people are natural 'dualists' finding it easy to conceive of the separation of the mind and the body."
“This suggests that attempts to suppress religion are likely to be short-lived as human thought seems to be rooted to religious concepts, such as the existence of supernatural agents or gods, and the possibility of an afterlife or pre-life.”
The study noted that regardless of where one is born, human beings are hard-wired believers in God. A small remote tribe with no culture in the middle of the pacific is expected to see creation and develop a religion through virtue of brain wiring. Rather the belief that there isn't a God is one that although a minority, is something culturally introduced but not rationally accounted for.
"Hiter was a Christian"
Unless we're desperate to argue straw men, no he wasn't. Yes, Hitler was born a Catholic but so are many atheists.
Claiming I am a test pilot because I play flight simulators doesn't make me a test pilot
Many of the "pro" Christian quotes you'll often hear thrown around the internet are public comments prior to ascending to power as evidenced by the years vs his criticism of Christianity while a leader in later years.
He is generally believed to have been skeptical of religion, but opportunistic and shrewdly aware of its influence on politics. Raised by an anti-clerical father and practicing Catholic mother, Hitler was baptized and confirmed in the Roman Catholic Church as a boy, but became hostile to Catholicism in adulthood. In his semi-autobiographical Mein Kampf, Hitler outlines a nihilistic philosophy, makes some religious allusions, and declares himself in favour of separation of church and state.
In public speeches, Hitler references providence, and sometimes said he was Christian. Officially, the Party endorsed what it termed "Positive Christianity" which stripped the religion of its Jewish origins and certain key doctrines such as belief in the divinity of Christ. In practice Hitler's regime persecuted the churches, and worked to reduce the influence of Christianity on society.
Hitler was reluctant to make public attacks on the Church for political reasons, but generally permitted or encouraged his inner-circle of anti-church radicals such as Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebbels and Martin Bormann to perpetrate the Nazi persecutions of the churches.
His remarks to confidants, as described in the Goebbels Diaries, the memoirs of Albert Speer, and transcripts of Hitler's private conversations recorded by Martin Bormann in Hitler's Table Talk, indicate anti-Christian beliefs. Goebbels wrote in 1941 that Hitler "hates Christianity". Alan Bullock considered that Hitler's central objection to Christianity, was that its teaching was "a rebellion against the natural law of selection by struggle and the survival of the fittest" (later through his eugenics programmes). Bullock considered Hitler to be a rationalist and a materialist who did not believe in God, but who frequently employed the language of "divine providence" in defense of his own myth.
According to Speer, Hitler had contempt for the neo-pagan views of Alfred Rosenberg and Himmler Hitler's appointment of the neo-pagan Rosenberg as official Nazi ideologist angered Christians. The regime launched an effort toward coordination of German Protestants under a unified Protestant Reich Church (but this was resisted by theConfessing Church) and moved early to eliminate political Catholicism.Hitler agreed to the Reich concordat with Rome, but then routinely ignored it, and permitted persecutions of the Catholic Church. Smaller religious minorities faced harsher repression, with the Jews of Germany expelled for extermination on the grounds of Nazi racial ideology.Jehovah's Witnesses were ruthlessly persecuted for refusing both military service and allegiance to Hitler's movement. Although he was prepared to delay conflicts for political reasons, many historians believe that Hitler eventually hoped to eradicate Christianity in Germany.
The Mohammedan religion . . . would have been much more compatible to us [Germans] than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?” (Speer, Albert. Inside the Third Reich (New York: Avon, 1971, p. 734).
"National Socialism and religion cannot exist together.... The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity." July 1941 Hitler's Table Talk
I think of of us recognise that Hitler wasn't a Christian. He may not have been an atheist but certainly was not a believer.
Religion is about Believing in Something Without Any Evidence
