RE: What happend to Atheism+ ?
Initially the idea behind it, I think, was to form an organization who championed certain causes.

If they could have just only done that, everything would have been fine, but their members fucked it all up.
This organization would be made of atheists. If you weren't atheist then you were the enemy.
If other atheists didn't join your cause, then they were the enemy.
If you weren't an extreme feminist, you were the enemy.
If you had ever read about a rape and didn't immediately go protest in that city, then you were endorsing "rape culture" and you are the enemy.

If you didn't agree with anything and everything their leaders spouted, then you weren't part of the hive mind.
Any dissenting voice was now the enemy.

It stopped being about an organization who would champion causes on day 2 because they were more concerned with only working with like minded people and labeling everyone else who didn't share their thoughts as enemies.
They became extremely religious on this point and began to look more like a religious cult.
They threw away their skepticism when it came to the assertions certain people in their organization made.
If you didn't believe every word they said about things that happened without any evidence to back up any of their claims, then you were their enemy.

In other words, they all lost their fucking minds

PS. I loathe them

Ugh, like all atheists are automatically socialists.

Yes please do, there shouldnt be a 'one shoe fits all' ideal for any atheists.

I sure as hell know that I dont fit in with many other groups that hang their hat on atheism. Which BTW muddies the waters plenty.

The forum of it still exists. Everytime I looked there it was rather limited though, just saw a bunch of posts by a guy with a Calvin and Hobbes avatar.

The attention it had was only because of backlashers, without that it's not gonna be a topical movement.

I hate feminist bitches.

It's hard to form a political organization around the idea of Atheism I think.
Atheism is just a lack of belief in God, there's no handbook associated with it so there's no common opinions.

A right win atheist party makes as much sense as a left wing atheist party.
