What the fuck is Atheist fundamentalism?
Yeah... that's about it really. Being an avid viewer of religious vs non religious debates I've noticed a massive increase in all the religious people ganging up and going on about a massive threat being atheist fundamentalism. What the fuck is that?

It's like over the thousands of years non-believers have had to suffer the most under the iron fist of religion while religions battled each other about whose is the "truest" and now we finally can express ourselves they're all ganging up on us as a common enemy. Fuck sake. Atheist fundamentalism. What are the fundamentals? Lacking in belief?

I think it comes from the religious that seem to think if you're an atheist then you're a nihilist basically.

While the word combo doesn't make much sense, people who say that probably believe atheists are out to do the following.

1. Mock religion and the religious.
2. Remove religion from everybody's life, including their personal life.
3. Start a war with god.
4. Welcome Satan into the world.

Dodgy

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

It's just nonsense from the people who like to say atheism is a religion.
They need to keep the world in their little categories, or else they get diarrhea.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Argh it's so annoying. You couldn't imagine how much of my life I spend trying to explain atheism to people.

Atheist fundamentalism is what you call an atheist who doesn't stay quiet.

I'm coming to think that. Darwin is called a atheist fundamentalist, for what? writing books! lol.

RE: What the fuck is Atheist fundamentalism?
It basically boils down to theists knowing that atheists who speak up as atheists, probably don't like religion. So they think it ironic to label us with religious terms. They don't realize that this undermines their own belief system, but one wouldn't expect rational thought from the religious camp!

RE: What the fuck is Atheist fundamentalism?
These memes rise and fall over time. This particular one and others like it just mean that our critiques of fundamentalism sting enough and have enough basis that they feel their only response can be "oh, YEAH? well you do it TOO". Ad hom charges of hypocrisy also create a faux "you live in a glass house so don't cast stones" vibe. Or if you prefer, a "pot, meet kettle" vibe.

It's all designed to put us uppity New Atheist types in our places and get us to ShutTheFuckFUp.

Sadly, it isn't going to happen. Religion is used to unearned deference and respect in the marketplace of ideas. How awful for them that they have to substantiate their claims just like everyone else now!

It's an oxymoron wielded by morons.

I'd like to agree, but minds like theirs do not comprehend irony. No

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
