as the article says, it's not surprising since that was the official line of the Chinese govt. back in the 40's...although it has relaxed that view. If I was raised where the Govt. was God and I was fearful of their wrath and destruction, heck yeah, I'd be an atheist too. I think it all has to do with personal experiences, internal, not external and no matter where folks live, there are believers in something greater than themselves and it gives them comfort and hope.

Here is something I find even more interesting:

http://www.billionbibles.org/china/how-many-christians-in-ch...

There are more Christians in China than the US. I've heard the 200 million stat several times although it would be a difficult thing to get reliable statitics from a communist nation that persecutes them.

And even more interesting is the fact that they are replicating at a very fast rate. Does that mean China will one day replace the US as the chief defender of the faith? Will China be sending missionaries to the US? <g>

There's plenty of fine Atheists in the world.

BUT....

Militant Atheists and Liberals use Atheism for the SAME reason Falwell uses Christ.....

TO CONTROL THE MASSES.

Liberals need government to be the Almighty force that controls everything.

I never thought of it that way, but you're right. Which makes more sense?

Conservatives believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong national defense. Conservatives believe the role of government should be to provide people with the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals. Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.

Liberals believe in government action to achieve equal opportunity and equality for all. It's the duty of government to alleviate social ills and protect civil liberties and individual and human rights. Liberals believe the role of government should be to guarantee that no one is in need. Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for government to solve problems. The only way to solve problems is to control the people who cause problems.

Believers don't demand that anyone bow down, either. Believers understand that the decision to follow is a personal volition. It was for them and it must be for everyone.

Agreed CC

BUT.................

What are key levers in America and the Western World?

*Big Banks

*Wall Street - Finance

*Journalism - Media

*Entertainment - Hollywood

*Education - grammar schools and universities and textbooks

Above represent key levers that control things. People's finances, what they read and see, what messages they get via movies or TV, what they are taught from childhood to adulthood.

LIBERALS CONTROL ALL OF THE ABOVE. THEY LEARNED IN THE 60's that communists and socialists can't win elections in a center-Right America. So they wisely, like a sleeper-cell, populated all of the arenas listed above and smartly gained control of ALL of them. Hence this is now a Center country and will be Center-Left very quickly.

Liberals have won. They did what Al Qaeda or their buddies in the Soviet Union couldn't do. They've beat America.

If I am wrong, I beg someone, show me. Show me because I'd give my left n*t to believe I'm wrong on this.

Oh and the moneyshot.... the fastest growing voter bloc is decidedly Liberal.

Checkmate, it's done.

I consider us all LUCKY not to have government agent inspecting our homes, our use of energy and appliances, or what we feed our kids at home. It's a matter of time.

More and more, in my mind. America is a nostalgic thing that I have fond memories of.

We're going to be something else now.

Which is why I CHEER the streets burning from Paris to Stockholm. I CHEER the gang (non violent) crimes in Caliphornia. I hope illegals suck more and more money from the system and more bridges and streets are left unfunded. The Insurgency Liberals that brought America down should at least get a few bruises.

But what do you make of the fact that conservative news shows and radio programs garner the highest ratings?

Most Watched Cable News Shows (February 2013)
http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/the-most-watched-cable-n...

Fox News, the cable news leader, led the competition with the top 13 programs in total viewers, and the top six in the adults 25-54 demo.

The 100 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts in America

The top five are conservative. On a good day, this gives me hope. On a bad day, I, too, give in to despair.

What is interesting, or at least in my personal experience, I would bet that China is getting more religious, i.e. less atheist. More practicing of organized religions.

What was probably not clarified, many Chinese participate in ancestor worship. That may or may not be seen as religious, at least to them.

IIRC, during the Cultural Revolution it was bow down to Mao and his Little Red Book.

I believe my ancestors are alive and well and "living" on the "other side", that great holographic film that our Universe is projected from.

And that "I" or my "soul" will be reunited with them after my physical body dies.

CC....

The ratings you pointed out are indeed real and I explain it in a few ways:

1.)Yep, lots of people tune in to Right leaning media. But sadly, it's nowhere NEAR what's needed for 270 electoral votes and more importantly, governance. Meaning yeah we'll win the Presidency here and there but we can't really govern due to the Left controlling Key Levers.

2000, 2004. Bush. Ok, we got tax cuts. We also got the biggest entitlement expansion in decades. Spending that made Clinton look like a pro-growth Republican.

2.)Ok, FOX is #1. But focusing on #2 is a mistake.

Please add up MSNBC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and most other mainstream media which is Liberal. Then, Fox is not #1 anymore. Conservative voice is focused while Liberal mediums are plentiful hence the ratings look poorer on a network by network basis. But in totality, Left media wins easily.

Oh, throw in Univision. Game over.

I see your point. I think I'll go shoot myself. ;-)

Seriously...I think Baracky Owebama's presidency will prove to have been a disaster that will change a few (many?) minds.

At least I'm praying so.
