So "the field of black atheists that black folks can identify with" is "dominated by white faces". Consider

Atheism is on the rise. It has *failed* nothing. "It" has no "responsibility" to do anything. "It" does not exist. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reification_(fallacy)

Oh Tomasia. Give it up mate. It's become just sad. Sadcryface2

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

I'd rather be falsely considered autistic than religious.

When you have conventions held in its name, logos printed, buttons worn, demands to be recognized, communities formed under its umbrella, etc... it's clearly more than nothing. It has become an identity for many.

And yet, despite the explanations of what atheism is, you still don't fucking understand that the only thing that binds atheists into a group, is a lack of a belief in a god(s) and that there are literally no other defining characteristics. Laugh out load

Which is more than one can say for any religion.

If it has, then that is a result of religious groups forcing their beliefs on others.

Rolleyes And the fact that people identify as atheists means... what? "Atheism is a religion" in 3...2...1...

The absence of something is not a "thing".
But you should know. You are obsessed with them, apparently.
