Stalin ruled the Soviet Union from the mid-1920s until his death in 1953. In 1929, a new legislation was drafted that severely prohibited religious activities and called for an education process on religion in order to further disseminate atheism and materialist philosophy. Religious property was confiscated, believers were harassed, and religion was ridiculed while atheism was propagated in the schools. Is this BA’s plan? He seems very anti-religious. As I hope we all know, that there are religions and there are religions… there is a wide variety of spiritual practices. Will BA be against all of these? I understand that most atheists “believe” in science. As Einstein once said, “What which is impenetrable to us really exists. Behind the secrets of nature remains something subtle, intangible, and inexplicable. Veneration of this force—beyond anything that we can comprehend, is my religion.”
