Athiest +
Hi everyone

I just want to know what everyone thinks about the new Atheist + movement.

I have recently found out about it and am very interested in what everyone else thinks.

Is this something we should support or is this somehting we should be against?

Me personally I'm still doing my research on the matter but I'm currently leaning towards being against.

I'd love to hear your opinions.

RE: Athiest +
I only heard about Atheism+ through theists mocking it. I haven't seen anything about it that would make it anything for the general atheist population to care about either way, but that may change in the future?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: Athiest +
This is a spin-off of the whole elevatorgate and ensuing nonsense right? I'm all for the ideals presented, as long as they aren't taken to the extreme stupidity they were at the start.


If you don't know what I'm talking about, allow me to reiterate:


Feminist goes to a hotel bar, gets buzzed, leaves, gets on an elevator. Guy on elevator says, "Would you like to have coffee together?" Feminist says no.

Feminist goes on blog and calls man creep for 'hitting on' her.

Sensible people tell her she overreacted. 4chan and Reddit show up and troll her, calling her a bitch and making death threats and such.

Feminist accuses entire atheist movement of being misogynistic and cruel.

Trolls and sensible people call her stupid.

Entire active atheist community gets embroiled in argument over feminism and everyone stoops to their lowest.

Things quiet down as 4chan trolls get bored and go infest other parts of the internet.




Now the feminist is starting the "Atheist+" movement, which I'm all for as long as it doesn't mean I'm forced to repress my sexuality because of her extreme form of feminism that considers "Want to get coffee?" a misogynistic insult.

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

RE: Athiest +
That's about spot on Phaedrus
Atheism + takes a symbol that has been out in the community for the past four years (the A+ symbol) and taken it as a symbol for their movement.
They have some social / political agenda that they want all their members to follow like a "hive mind" set.
If you're not on board, then you walk the plank and you're booted over board.
No arguments, no dissent, no democracy really, just the hive mind laying out the plan for the worker bees to follow.

I'm pretty sure there is a word to describe this.

Totalitarian ?

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Nah, not a fan of atheism + but, I am a fan freethought and humanism, and that is all that really matters to me.

I define myself as a feminist and an equal rights advocate. I want things like achieving women's suffrage, equal pay for women, reproductive rights for women (including access to contraceptives and abortion), and their right to enter into contracts and own property. Oh no.

That bitch isn't a feminist. She is a sexist cunt.
