True Or False: Atheist Humanism Produced The Worst Horrors History Has Ever Witnessed


Hibernia College Dublin, in its Higher Diploma in Arts in Primary Education, is teaching as part of its Religion module several untrue statements about atheism and at least two defamatory allegations about modern atheists. This includes course notes that claim that “What bothers very few of its latter-day exponents is the fact that atheist humanism produced the worst horrors history has ever witnessed, namely Nazism, Fascism and Marxism…” and a mock examination where the student is expected to answer that it is “True” that “Atheist humanism produced the worst horrors history has ever witnessed.”

The course notes, according to AI – which has written in protest to Hibernia College – were written by Father Vincent Twomey, Iona Institute patron and professor emeritus of moral theology at St Patrick’s College Maynooth.
