Funny, this picture looks an awful lot like what the atheist masses do in North Korea on national holidays; worship their leader and his atheist ideals of utopia.
You watch the "History" channel and take all of it's programing as ultimate fact?
"History" is a horrid mess, only an idiot would watch "History".
Even atheism has had it's flock of sheep; just look at how much energy is wasted to get it's ideas forced onto people (and how strongly and blindly people adhere to it). The USSR and Mexico's bloody La Reforma both come to mind.
Atheism has had it's questionable moments, what's funny is how many people use atheism a sort of social crutch to stand on.
Whether its religion or (communist) atheism It's pretty much a loose, loose social phenomena.
