I vote to delete this page. It seems like a special case of Argumentum ad hominem. --Arensb 20:46, 29 December 2009 (CST)

I dunno. I agree that it is an ad hominem, but the supposed "link between atheism and communism", or that "communism is atheism in practice", comes up so often that I think it does justify its own page. I will say that I think it should be worded and laid out allot better than it currently is.--Murphy 23:29, 29 December 2009 (CST)
Popularity doesn't mean there's a lot to say about it. If there's a "stub-worthy" amount to say about a certain special case, we could create a sub-heading "Special Cases" or "Examples" under Argumentum ad hominem, and then if some day that section (or any single special case) grows sufficiently to justify a separate page, separate it at that point. I'd vote to delete --Jaban 12:40, 30 December 2009 (CST)
Should probably be redirected to Ad hominem. - Soulkeeper 22:50, 2 January 2010 (CST)
I disagree. This is a specific claim I've both personally heard as well as heard theist callers on The Atheist Experience claim. Combining "X, Y, Z were atheists" into one article would seem a far higher priority than this. --ExistentialEnso

I could go either way on whether or not to retain this page. I'm relatively new here, so I leave that decision to the veterans around here. However, I've rewritten this page, and I hope the content is improved from the previous version. I haven't yet linked to other pages. I also wonder if my inclusion of an at-length example of the fallacy of affirming the consequent is inappropriate here, although it definitely applies. Any opinions?
