Why have many atheist dictators such as Stalin and Pol Pot killed millions and millions of people? Were they inspired by their atheism?

the TWO biggest MASS MURDERERS of the 20th century, MAO & Stalin were communists, and that means they were atheists also, but ALL those killings were political, not religious .........

There's no correlation between atheism and dictators.

"Inspired" by atheism? Really?

Good try. Now look up how many have been killed by leaders that weren't atheist. Religion doesn't really have much to do with why leaders kill people.It's politics and power.

No, anyone who commits murder is inspired by their father the Devil. Jesus told us the Devil was a murderer from the beginning and the father of lies (John 8:44), just as the Bible explains that the Devil is the thief, whose only ministry is to STEAL, KILL and DESTROY (John 10:10)

If your god is real and your god got a plan they were part of it so... where is your god again? Were they inspired by your god?

It was atheistic evangelism by gunpoint.
And seeing the kind of people that respond here on Y!A, they would be glad to do the same thing here if they could.

I wouldn't say "inspired", but obviously they didn't think what they were doing was wrong, and in the world of atheism, if you don't think something is wrong, it's not wrong.
There are no absolute right and wrongs; each person decides what is right and wrong. No one has any higher moral authority than anyone else. I mean who decides what is right and wrong for everyone? the government? like in Nazi Germany?

These appeals to emotion are a distraction from the point. Is your argument that we should lie about the truth and teach Christianity because you believe it will make us more peaceful?

But even if they were, guess what?
There still aren't any gods.
