There seems to be an understanding among some atheists according to which Adolf Hitler was Christian. Bill Pratt of the apologetic weblog Tough Questions Answered puts the record straight with a direct quote from David Robertson’s The Dawkins Letters:
He was not a member of any church, and thought the Christian religions were outdated, hypocritical institutions that lured people into them. The laws of nature were his religion. He could reconcile his dogma of violence better with nature than with the Christian doctrine of loving your neighbour and your enemy.
This one is simply a myth.
Bill Pratt of the apologetic website Tough Questions Answered deconstructs Richard Dawkins’ case against theistic ethics presented in The God Delusion. Despite the “killing” Professor Dawkins has made with his book(s), his case for a “moral consensus” without God is based on a simple fallacy of modal logic:
On atheism, Professor Dawkins, give us a rational reason to follow the moral consensus without first just assuming that we should be moral (that’s called begging the question). No such reason was ever offered in The God Delusion. I wonder if Dawkins forgot that he even asked the question.
