Atheism +
Opinions?

Personally cannot stand them. I find them to be a contemptable lot of insufferable moral elitists drenched in radical feminism that is comparable to cancer. That and their "You're either with us or against us" mentality pisses me off. Its like their trying to make atheism into everything its not: A religion.

Wonder how long before they ask for tax-exempt status?

I think it's a good idea. If atheists are people who got rid of religion through reason. Why couldn't they use the same method to get rid of other kinds of bullshit? Few people are atheists and atheists only, notably infants. Many atheists have a good moral code, they already are "atheists +" by default. You might be. I might be.

But I don't know how did they put that idea to work. I haven't seen a live feminist in my lifetime and I don't know the rest of Atheism +. I'd say Atheism + is about being tough on ourselves and our most favorite ideas. Are they tough on themselves?

If you claim there are nuances to principles, there are no nuances to getting arrested or shot for disobeying the power.

RE: Atheism +
Atheism+ itself is pretty bad.
Social justice etc. etc. are points that remind me more of a political party.
You could have a similar party with completely opposing views agreeing only on the atheism bit.
Which kind of goes to prove that it is 'just another' subject, like foreign affairs, agriculture and defense.

But if more people start such parties, you know what you get then?

Exactly how many A+ threads are you going to have....

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

As many as it takes to do what?

Admit to ourselves that we have an almost complete consensus that A + is a bad idea?


I am angry tonight.

RE: Atheism +
For what I know, I don't think one needs Atheism+. To have likeminded people unite is in no way bad, but it's just this movment's name that bothers me. What does Atheism have to do with feminism or racism? If you feel like you fight for these causes, join an anti-racist group instead. Just because we are atheists doesn't mean we have some sort of superior moral understanding, and we are the only type of people who can solves these issues. Atheist or theist; anyone can be a good guy, and anyone can be an asshole.

As many as it takes to run out of stuff to bitch about. And after we're through beating that dead horse, we'll resurrect it and call it a zebra. And beat it all over again.

Or, I could make another Gwynnie thread. But nobody likes my Gwynnie threads. Sadcryface2

Of course not, House.

Always making making threads about some old woman is bound to get old eventually.
