I'm sure we've all dealt with theists debating with us that communist nations such as North Korea are atheist nations and in their view that atheism can be just as fundamentalist as religion. 

But what is the reality here?  Does communism and atheism have a connection? Or is the communism in North Korea promoted due to some other reason? Or do both sides really have their good and bad sides and we as a species generalise far too much?

Hi Keith, there was a couple of quotes from the recent Olympics... when the American's won a gold medal, they would thank God or Jesus... when the North Korean's won a gold medal, they thanked their glorious leader.

What level of brain washing would induce that? Religious indoctrination. The North Korean heads of state abolished existing religion to replace it with a religion idolising the leader.

Furthermore, neither atheism now communism state in their ideologies (or lack thereof) anything about the other.
