Radical Atheists Kill 29 In Middle East Suicide Bombing

Jul 29, 2014

radicalathiestbombingA group of radical atheists claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing in Iraq today.

This morning the normally peaceful southern town of Al-Lamkan was rocked by a powerful explosion in a crowded fruit market that killed 29 people and injured over 50.

In a video uploaded to YouTube, a group known as the Charles Darwin Martyr Brigades (CDMB) said two of its members were responsible for the carnage and threatened more violence against Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Buddhists, Sikhs and other religious groups.

“Our soldiers have spilled the blood of the religionists,” says the group’s leader, Dr. Richard Harris, in the video. “These filthy pigs reject the principle of falsification laid down by the prophet Karl Popper, glory be his name. They must be eradicated.”

CDMB started as a physics doctoral study group at the University of Cambridge in England in the late 1990s. The group quickly evolved into a violent atheist terrorist organization bent on destroying all religions in the world.

In 2004 it bombed St. Paul’s Cathedral in London and destroyed St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome the following year. A later plot to fly a 737 into Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was disrupted by the French intelligence services.

More recently the organization has used the security vacuum in Syria and Iraq to establish a global base of operations, where they’ve used their expertise in chemistry to manufacture methamphetamine and designer drugs to fund their operations.

Some security analysts believe the group could have chemical, biological or even nuclear weapons given the high technical ability of some of its members.

It’s conventional forces are also impressive. Nearly 5,000 non-believers from around the Western world have also come to Iraq to fight with CDMB, whose stated goal is to create an atheist empire that stretches from England to Australia.

One of the most important historical sites for the group is Baghdad, which was a center of science and learning from the 8th to the 13th centuries.

“Once Baghdad is in our hands we will have the resources to spread our message around the world,” Harris claims. “The streets of London, New York, Sydney, Cairo and Mumbai will flood with the blood of believers.”

    CDMB disintegrated when it turned out its members “believed” there are no Gods.

  • jimlouvier

    Don’t they realize that by claiming to follow a prophet, they are a religion, and not atheists?

  • Nanno Ym

    Yeah congrats, you proved TDC wrong – you win the internet.

  • Benjamin F

    The Atheists all around the world do not endorse, and are not in agreement,with these extremists. So called CBDM crazy’s are on their own. By all means kill the motherfuckers.

  • Robert Cipriani

    -_-

  • Benjamin F

    They’re NOT atheists. That’s their “mask”. they are a religious or political faction. I AM an atheist — we don’t fuckin kill other humans.

  • adibese

    You all know that this is satire, right? The joke is, that Atheists are NOT involved in terrorism.

    LOL I love how the daily currant makes such a realistic-sounding story.

  • Charles M Taylor

    No, they don’t. They just blindly react.

    Benjamin F, you do realize that the Daily Currant is a fake news page, right?

    Haha. Good one.

  • Paul M

    (whispers softly) this is a satire site

  • Bandimore Fox

    It is just me or do i smell fake news article?

  • Benjamin F

    If I believed it was true; then there may be thousands thinking the same — I had to defend the atheist movement. Satire or not, I’m on it…….whats your point ?

  • Paul M

    Unsure how you can miss my point. I only said one thing :)

  • Benjamin F

    No I didn’t realize. My first instinct was to defend the Atheist movement. No harm done. What’s your point ? Are you assuming I’m the only one who fell for this article being genuine ? You can assume many more such as I were duped by the Daily Currant. No harm done. I’ve done it before. Stop trying to be so “blogger-correct”. And thanks for your effort to enlighten me. I appreciate it and will research things time.

  • Benjamin F

    Thanx for the heads-up. I appreciate it. : – ))

  • Benjamin F

    I didn’t read it on Currant. I read on Facebook.

    There are people who think that this is for real, hilarious

  • Frédéric Doré

    If this were real it would be news Worthy, because atheist are smart people and dont blow themselves up for what they stand for. Now replace atheist with any religon (read especially Islam) and this would be so common it would not be Worth mentionning. When humans grow up from their imaginary friends, we will be able to call ourselves a smart race. Thanks religious ppl for lowering the worldwide Q.I

  • Raptorbuddha

    Easy there, man. From your other posts on this article, I can see you’re getting a bit defensive about having mistaken a satirical piece for the real thing. Like you said, no harm done, but maybe tone down the retaliatory assumptions a bit. No reason to lash out at people trying to help you out.

    No, Atheists are cry babies who “believe” there’s nothing. Personally, I’m with Einstein:
    “I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one. You may call me an agnostic, but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being.”

  • Darren Wilson

    Can you justify the comment that we believe in nothing? That’s absolutely ridiculous. We believe in everything that we can see, touch and smell. What we don’t believe in is the indoctrination of children, the subjugation of women and the bronze age myths created by those without knowledge to explain what a school child could explain today.

  • FlippinAwesome

    Then it must be true. Everything on Facebook is true!

  • Frédéric Doré

    well beyond of what we can see , touch or smell, we dont believe, we KNOW, we UNDERSTAND when we are presented with FACTS and PROOFS, the 2 things religion will never be able to give us. PROVE me that god exist, then i will KNOW and accept that he exist, but i wont admire him, because littles are the chances he exists, an all powerful being who let his creation suffer is not worthy of my respect, no matter who he is.

  • Benjamin F

    Hahahahaha hahaha — thanx for the info on Daily Currant being bullshit.

  • Benjamin F

    your opinion is not true except that it is opinion and true only in your childish mind.

  • WitMeister

    There’s a difference between satire and bullshit. Satire is when you make fun of people. Bullshit is when you don’t know who is being made fun of.

    Actually, no they’re not. Hitler was a Catholic who had “god is with us” on the belt buckles of his troops. His religious beliefs were very responsible for his hatred of Jews. Even if he wasn’t religious, 95 percent of the people who actually carried out his orders were religious.

    Stalin wanted to be a Russian Orthodox priest before turning to communism. He banned all other churches but propped them up. That’s why there are many religious paintings of Stalin. And why Christianity is so strong in Russia today.

    Pol Pot was Buddhist, and was supported by the CIA to combat North Vietnamese. Mao was a Buddhist until he became Communist. Militant Communists were about destroying history, art and anything non state. Hardly the thinking of any Atheists I know.

    So, you have the audacity to give me terrible information based from hateful and ignorant religious people, used to justify belief being moral? Look at slavery, look at hate against homosexuals, look at EVERY SINGLE war for the last 50 years. ALL due to the same Abrahamic faith. Even if you can claim that a dictator was non religious, his followers were religious. Look at all the safest countries. All non religious. Look at the prisons. Almost all religious. Think for yourself.

    From Hitler, the “Atheist.”

    “My feeling as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was his fight against the Jewish poison. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed his blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice. …And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly, it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people. And when I look on my people I see them work and work and toil and labor, and at the end of the week they have only for their wages wretchedness and misery. When I go out in the morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil, if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom today this poor people are plundered and exploited.”

  • Frédéric Doré

    maybe agnosticis, would suits me better because yes, we have no poof god dosent exist either. Same goes for the house i have on pluto. The probability that dietities are man made stories are infinitely higher than the chances that those actually exists. With sects we can see that it’s easy to catch guillible people with made up stories to gain control over individuals. Religion are good at doing this at a much larger scale. Too many things in the bible or any holy books were proven wrongs for me to give a little chance to the theory that “god exist”

  • Frédéric Doré

    Hitler was a christian btw. so the biggest genocide was made in the name of christianity, as per your declaration (sounds retarded right? but the way you bring it up makes it seems retarded to say that those killing where made in the name of atheism. they were not. no mass killing was ever made in the name of atheism. as for religion, well, it’s still going on strongly today. and since Hitler was a christian, by your logic, lets say that 6 million jews died in the name of god. KthxBye

  • Ignatz

    [Stalin wanted to be a Russian Orthodox priest before turning to communism]

    And after becoming an atheist, he started killing people. The Orthodox priests fled the country. Stalin the seminarian killed nobody. Stalin the theist killed milions.

    And Mao or Pol Pot? They were atheists. Buddhists aren’t theists. And I love “was Buddhist UNTIL he became a Communst.” Then he wasn’t Buddhist when he killed people. Duh. Or people with fewer numbers but just as much brutality, like Calles. Heck, the only officially atheist government right now is North Korea. Nice, peaceful place, isn’t it?

    In fact, it appears that every single officially atheist government has killed people in massive numbers, and begun to do so almost immediately upon being established

    [look at EVERY SINGLE war for the last 50 years.]

    You think Vietnam was a religious war? Saddam Hussein invading Kuwait? Iran/Iraq?

    All reality must fit into your pre-determined little world, mustn’t it?

  • sudon’t

    Hitler was also a vegetarian, (the atheist thing is debatable). Doesn’t mean “vegetarians are responsible for x…” Hitler and Stalin’s atheism were unrelated to their killing.
    The article is funny because atheism has never been invoked as a reason to kill people. On the other hand, religion is very often the reason invoked for killings.

  • therain

    Don’t quit your day job to to be statistician or a

    Nope. Your post was already refuted, and you failed to justify your incorrect stances using anything factually based whatsoever.

    No, he didn’t. There are recorded speeches in fact of him declaring his christian faith, while he was in power. He had ‘god is with us’ emblazoned on his troops’ belt buckles.

    Stalin did much to prop up the church of his choosing, and is directly responsible for why Russia is so religious to this day.

    In short, you don’t actually know what you’re talking about. You just think you do, because someone else (equally misinformed) regurgitated something that appealed to you, and you decided to keep regurgitating it without fact-checking.

    [That's why there are many religious paintings of Stalin. And why Christianity is so strong in Russia today.]

    That’s one of the most ignorant statements I’ve ever seen. Christianity is strong in Russia today because of Stalin? Russian became majority atheist because of Stalin. The Russian Orthodox call Stalin’s reign “the diaspora” because they had to flee the country. They’ve canonized Tsar Nicholas – who shouldn’t be – almost entirely because the Communists hated him.

  • adibese

    Well, for one thing he allowed the Church permission to elect a Patriarch in 1943 (Metropolitan Sergei was chosen for this post) and to publish *The Journal of the Moscow Patriarchate* Many churches that had been closed were re-opened; even some new ones were built. The church was also allowed to open seminaries. It should be remembered that World War II was a time when Stalin was stressing the glories of the Russian past (Alexander Nevsky and so on) and the rehabilitation of Orthodoxy went
    along well with this.

    Apart from improving domestic morale, strengthening the Orthodox Church was useful to Stalin for two other reasons: (1) impressing world opinion, especially in the US, where the association of the Soviet government with
    militant atheism was unpopular; and (2) using Orthodoxy as a weapon against the Roman Catholic Church (which was seen as incorrigibly anti-Soviet); in the post-World War II period the old dream of Russian nationalists that the Uniates (Eastern-rite Catholics) be re-united with Orthodoxy was finally achieved by the ex-seminarian from Tiflis. (At least it was achieved at an official level; the Uniates continued to exist
    as an underground church).

    The Church of course paid a price for this new tolerance: it was closely supervised by the KGB, and forced to acclaim Stalin as the divinely ordained Father of the Soviet Peoples and to support his postwar “peace” movement.

    It is ironic that it was Khrushchev, seen by Westerners as more “liberal” and “tolerant” than Stalin (which of course in some respects he was) who really revived militant state opposition to religion from circa 1959 to 1964. See http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/archives/anti.html

  • adibese

    Communism isn’t Atheism. Atheism is not a belief, or a government. There is no organization, it’s just the lack of a belief in a god. Buddhists are NOT Atheists. Know why? Because they are freakin’ THEISTS!

    Your “Atheist’ government examples are dictators who wanted to destroy all other historical groups and religions that typically banded together to fight the governments. It had NOTHING to do with fighting god, you numbskull. And look at ALL the safest countries and even states in the world. They ALL have the lowest numbers of religious people in the population. Coincidence? No. The only question arises, does religion MAKE you violent, or do violent people believe in religion.

    In a sense, yes, Vietnam was religious, in that the US felt it needed to fight the “godless Evil Empire.” The Americans used the fact that the Iraqi’s were an Arab country as a rallying point to justify their invasion of Iraq after Kuwait. Remember how America wanted a “Western (Christian)” influence in the area?

  • Ignatz

    No, Buddhism is not a theistic religion. Some Buddhists are theists and some are not. Theism is not necessary to Buddhism.

    And of course Communism isn’t atheism, but the Russian Communists were atheists, and it was considered fundamental to the philosophy. Marxist-Leninist philosophy rejected religion, and advocated its abolition, on the grounds that it caused passive acceptance in the lower classes. And the claim that Stalin is the reason the Russians are religious is seriously one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. The Russian Orthodox HATE Stalin.

  • adibese

    Dude. Buddhists are religious. Atheists are not. Do you get it?? Atheism is by the very definition not religious. Buddhism is a religion.

    Except that the Russian Orthodox church grew in size and influence (Stalin was a member who had wanted to be a priest) and many churches still paint Stalin in glorified paintings today. Do you think the millions of Christians in Russia (you know, the ones killing gay people) came from NOWHERE??!! Even IF you could prove that either Hitler or Stalin were atheists (evidence is against that) 95 percent of their followers were Christian or Catholic. Hitler and Stalin never killed anyone themselves, lest we not forget. So, the overwhelming populations of religious people certainly didn’t make things better, lol. And funny to note, again, that ALL of the safest countries and States are the least religious, or put in secular governments. Also, don’t forget that the Founding Fathers originally created a SECULAR government, no matter what that you right wingers are trying to change history.

    You know how many WW2 heroes pledged allegiance to god or used money with god printed on it? None. It was pure and simple propaganda injected in the 50’s. And you fell for it.

  • Ignatz

    Stalin revived the Church in an attempt to gain support for the war effort against the Nazis. The Church had to be revived because before that were attempts to kill it. Almost the entire clergy was either shot or sent to labor camps. Publication of Orthodox material became illegal, as did patriarchal elections.

    “Allowed permission in 1943″ didn’t clue you in? The Soviet Union started in 1917.

  • adibese

    ” Russian became majority atheist because of Stalin.” – So, Stalin assumed absolute power in 1941 and made the RO church more powerful in 1943.

    Your post is incorrect. The quote came from Hitler came from a speech he made on April 12, 1922. 17 years before the outbreak of WWII. After 17 years many people’s beliefs and thoughts change. Although I don’t put a lot of credence in wikiposts their ease of understanding for all makes it at least acceptable.

    Hitler needs to be looked at from different angles. Hitler needed to assuage the consciences of the average German citizen since they were staunchly Catholic and their country was about to wage a war that was going to commit genocide. He needed to have the German citizens fall in line with his way of thinking so he told them anything and everything they wanted to hear. Germany was coming out of a horrible recession and no work was to be had. Hitler, no doubt, had a silver tongue and quickly swayed the citizens. All politicians will tell their constituents anything they can to gain the positions they desperately want. Hitler was no different.

    Hitlers private conversations are the ones to really pay attention to. In his private conversations he was very anti-Christian and actually showed more hostility towards Christianity during the war.

    News for you, Atheists don’t hate Jews. Also, even if you were to show that Hitler abandoned his Catholicism in private conversations (after 1941), and yet still managed to support the Catholic church, Hitler STILL did not kill anyone. His country was 95 percent Catholic. And they were the ones who killed.

    Look at today. It’s a fact that the safest countries (even states) are the safest and most educated. It’s a fact that 98-99 percent of prisoners are religious. I won’t go so far as to say religion CAUSES violence, but it sure doesn’t make it better.

    I’m going to call BS on the Hitler not killing anyone, since he was a soldier in the German army during WWI, but during WWII I would possibly agree. Following your line of thought though Charles Manson should be released with a full pardon because he didn’t actually kill anyone either. Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein shouldn’t have been killed because they didn’t kill anyone. They merely ordered those deaths.

    Now let’s use logic. There are stipulations in the law about being an accomplice because he knowingly knew about the crimes (since he ordered them) and failed to stop them, he is just as guilty as the person who actually committed the crime. He is also more so since the people actually committing the act would have been killed if they refused, just like with Manson, bin Laden and Hussein.

    From your previous posts where you comment about ” hateful and ignorant religious people, used to justify belief being moral?”, my assumption is that you’re an atheist. My question is why is it that you hate something that you believe isn’t real? Is it that you hate all religions or just Christianity?

    Adibese, one thing I would say for you is to actually cite your sources. Of course the safest of all states and countries are the safest (your comment not mine), but the most educated are the safest? Show me your proof.

  • adibese

    When did I say Hitler had to be released with a full pardon? The question was if the crimes were done for Atheism or not. Wow, you went out of left field there. Whoosh!

    Ah, the ol’ why do you hate something that isn’t real argument. I can assure you Christianity and Islam are very real. It’s god that’s not. And I hate “god” as much as that whiney Joffrey character in Game of Thrones. If Christianity wasn’t so prone to influencing politics, schools and all forms of government since the Commie Witch Hunts, I wouldn’t have a problem. But truth is, I do hate Islam more.

    Here’s a list of the least/most religious states…

    Least religious are safest.

    I said if we were to follow your line of thinking then Charles Manson, not Adolf Hitler should get a full pardon. I would suggest you read the full sentence. I agree that the original question was if crimes were done in the name of atheism or not, but when you point out the question of people committing murder or not, things change.

    So, let’s look at this with a rational viewpoint. You hate something that you don’t believe exists and want to force that viewpoint onto others. You chastise religions for forcing their influence on people and yet aren’t you doing the same exact thing by pushing your bigotry on those of faith? Christianity is far from being perfect, and yet Christianity has done more for this world now and in the past than atheism has ever done. It’s rather ironic isn’t it that some of the greatest minds in science also happen to be people of faith? You would probably be a little more happier if you were to actually be more like an actual atheist instead of being someone who’s anti-religion.

    I like that you showed a link of the most and least religious states and countries, yet your statement of the least religious is still opinion. Your facts don’t back up your hypothesis. I would think that someone that is anti-religious/ pro-science would be able to do better than that.

  • adibese

    David… think long and hard here… I didn’t say Hitler was good or not. I said even IF you could show he had Atheistic thoughts (based on 3 people), those thoughts had nothing to do with the crimes, since 95 percent of Germans were very Catholic. To simplify things for you, if I said “Kill those Jews because they’re not Atheists (lol)” you, as a Christian would not kill them because they’re not Atheists. You may kill them for your own reasons, but not for Atheism. Considering 95 percent of Germans were religious, that religion certainly didn’t stop them from killing, and they certainly didn’t kill for Atheism.

    “So, let’s look at this with a rational viewpoint. You hate something that you don’t believe exists” – Uhh… Christianity does exist, doesn’t it?

    “You chastise religions for forcing their influence on people and yet
    aren’t you doing the same exact thing by pushing your bigotry on those
    of faith?”

    – No, pushing for equality, granted by the constitution, is not bigotry.

    ” Christianity is far from being perfect, and yet Christianity has done
    more for this world now and in the past than atheism has ever done.”

    -Like WHAT?! We lost 1,000 years of progress since Alexandria. Christians have persecuted and killed millions. A few missionaries trying to convert Africans isn’t “good.” Look at most of the largest charity donors today. All Atheist. We don’t expect a “reward” for our good deeds. We just want to help. And proportionally we give far higher compared to our numbers. You give to the churches so they can buy jets? That’s not helping the world. And pushing to remove birth control doesn’t help the poor, either.

    “It’s
    rather ironic isn’t it that some of the greatest minds in science also
    happen to be people of faith?”
    – Considering the disproportionally higher numbers of non religious in science, you are the first person to ever use that argument. Lol.

    “You would probably be a little more
    happier if you were to actually be more like an actual atheist instead
    of being someone who’s anti-religion.”
    -So, now because I’m presenting you with facts, I’m not happy? I’d say you weren’t happy since you’re so vitriolic. But, I know you’re using your Christian 101 argument book. Even though research shows that religious people are less happy. http://www.cbc.ca/newsblogs/yourcommunity/2013/09/religious-believers-more-depressed-than-atheists-study.html

    “I like that you showed a link of the most and least religious states and
    countries, yet your statement of the least religious is still opinion.
    Your facts don’t back up your hypothesis. I would think that someone
    that is anti-religious/ pro-science would be able to do better than
    that.”

    I gave you a long research study on countries, and the state list should be pretty self explanatory. Do I need to hold your hand? Ok, the least religious state is Vermont, and the most religious state is Mississippi. For giggles, let’s look at crime stats… shall we?

    The murder rate between the two states is startling. In Mississippi, the rate stands
    at 10.1%; in Vermont it is 1.8%, and nationally it is 6.1%. Incarceration rates per 100,000 residents stand at 810 for Mississippi and 373 for Vermont. State-wide unemployment in Mississippi is 6.6%, while in Vermont it is 4.2% and nationally the average 8.2%.

    Do I need to hold your hand further?

    WRONG about atheists are not involved in terrorism.

    Kim Jong Un is atheist. USSR was atheists and was killing religious people. China too.

  • CynicalAtheist

    I have to agree with you. Until I started reading these comments, I didn’t know this was satire…
    Thank goodness, though, now I don’t have to have a stroke from the high blood pressure this article gave me (’cause I knew it was a lie.)

  • CynicalAtheist

    I can understand where he is coming from … I thought the same thing… Articles like this don’t help the Atheist movement, though, for those who DON’T know it’s satire, and share it as truth. We keep fighting an uphill battle for equality.

  • ituri

    You’re new here, aren’t you.

    *IT’S NOT REAL*

  • ituri

    Say’s every zealot Christian in the USA who can’t find enough people to hate on in a single day.

    Get over yourself. Religion is The Top Killer of men throughout our history.

  • ituri

    Wrong. Fear of a communistic government didn’t magically make anyone atheistic. People still believed in their gods, but couldn’t OPENLY say so or worship because they might be disappeared for it. Communism is about a central government power. Religion has power uncontrolled by the government. It’s an obvious government power control issue, and has nothing to do with the beliefs themselves.

    Say it with us now. Communism is not atheism. It’s simple. One is a government. One is not a government. GET IT?

  • Ignatz

    Communism is not atheism, but according to Marx, theism is completely incompatible with it.

    Randian Objectivism isn’t atheism, either, but the “philosophy” (sic) is incoherent without it.

  • CynicalAtheist

    Yes. Though after reading many of the comments, I figured it out. I did, however, add the caveat, “if this is true”, in my defense.

  • Comment_Cop

    Lol!!

  • Ignatz

    ["Hitler left religion at an early age." - Wrong. The Wehrmacht's belt buckles were inscribed "GOTT MIT UNS", God is with us.]

    That phrase was standard in the German military since the 1600s, long before Hitler. It’s a meaningless phrase of national piety. It’s sort of like claiming that the United States has an official religion because the money says “In God We Trust.”

  • Ignatz

    “Gott Mit Uns” was a standard German military slogan since the 1600s. It’s pretty muc meaningless. You must be very religious – all the money in your wallet says, “In God We Trust.”

    [The Crusades... christians.]

    1000 years ago.

    [The Spanish Inquisition... christians]

    500 years ago.

    There have been no bloody wars or unjust tribunals in secular nations since, right?

    Oh, wait…just 100 years ago, WWI was even less justified than the Crusades, and FAR, FAR bloodier. And was participated in by YOUR OWN SECULAR COUNTRY.

  • CynicalAtheist

    We may have secular laws, but, we are still struggling to maintain a secular country, by far.
