"The horrors of the concentration camps reveal with utter clarity the consequences of God’s absence."

God's absence has had a terrific effect on my country. I'm an atheist; my countrymen are not. Religion is simply not an issue worth spending ones time with. And not only are we not more criminal than most "morally superior" countries, but far less, which is odd, given that we live where God is absent. So if he explained the concentration camps due to an absence of God, then how does he explain why Swedes are not morally inferior?

Oh my, I think we have a logical fallacy... from a theist!
