Today, April 24th is Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day
. At this time of year, one other well known group tries to grab all of the attention insist that their
genocide is better than everyone else's. This year the underdog will get all of the Atheologist's attention.
The Armenians are always proclaiming the fact that their country was the first one to adopt Christianity as the national religion. What a bunch of braggers! Being the first Christian state is all well and good but has it helped the Armenians any?
Over the centuries Armenia has suffered from a multitude of invasions, wars, massacres and has been conquered by the Greeks, Romans, Persians, Byzantines, Mongols, Arabs, Ottoman Turks, and Russians. In response to Armenian nationalist stirrings, the Turks massacred thousands of Armenians in 1894 and 1896. The most horrific massacre took place in April 1915 during World War I, when the Turks ordered the deportation of the Armenian population to the deserts of Syria and Mesopotamia. According to the majority of historians, between 600,000 and 1.5 million Armenians were murdered or died of starvation. The Armenian massacre is considered the first genocide in the 20th century. To this day Armenia’s external political situation remains unstable and problematic. Not to mention the yeast
After all these centuries
why have things not settled down?
What can be done to reduce or even eliminate the tension in the Caucasus
The Atheologist thinks that he has the answer.
The Atheologist has a suggestion for the Republic of Armenia and that suggestion is a simple one: Change your national religion to Islam. It may be that simple! By admitting that you realize your mistake of picking Christianity as your national religion and switching to Islam, your neighbors will now embrace you and think of you as friends instead of infidels and heathens
. Just take one look at a map
of your country and those that surround you. Do you see many friendly Christian neighbors on your borders? Except for Georgia, (and they have their own problems), the Atheologist certainly does not! Azerbaijan
- 93.4% Muslim, Iran
– 98% Muslim and your ‘favorite’ neighbor Turkey
– 99.8% Muslim. What will it take for you to see that the Atheologist is right, another holocaust?
The Atheologist can picture a much brighter future for Armenia, where Armenians and Azerbaijanis will gather together and be laughing at the silly Nagorno-Karabakh
tiff. Turks will be seen embracing Armenians and finally admitting after so long that, “yes we did it
and we beg for forgiveness from you and Allah”. The Atheologist sees Iran and Armenia helping each other in the nuclear power
department. Beauty contests
would be a lot more fun. And Armenians would now be able to participate in a Jihad
if they wished, (no doubt a secret fantasy for many).
Do it Armenia, you won’t be sorry.
