Thomas Edison, a communist….?
Question by sdfsdf d: Thomas Edison, a communist….?
I have been called a communist numerous times for being an atheist.
“Nature is what we know. We do not know the gods of religions. And nature is not kind, or merciful, or loving. If God made me — the fabled God of the three qualities of which I spoke: mercy, kindness, love — He also made the fish I catch and eat. And where do His mercy, kindness, and love for that fish come in? No; nature made us — nature did it all — not the gods of the religions.” Thomas Edison
“The Bible is not my book nor Christianity my profession. I could never give assent to the long, complicated statements of Christian dogma.” Abraham Lincoln
“I have found Christian dogma unintelligible. Early in life, I absenteed myself from Christian assemblies.” Benjamin Franklin
Would you call Thomas Edison, Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Franklin communists????
Answer by alanagkelly
No but they were not all atheists either. Benjamin Franklin actually believed in many gods.
The people who do do so because they have no true understanding of what the word means. A lot of people don’t actually.
