Thread Name: BS: Militant atheism has become a religion
Subject: RE: BS: Militant atheism has become a religion
"Actually, if "militant atheism" has become a religion, which I doubt, then why is it that"

No one on this thread has claimed that. The title above is title of the de Waal article on Salon. If you have a problem with it take it up with him. This is talked over and explained in the first few posts of this thread. You've claimed to have read the thread by now. Haven't you? Please show some respect for us and know what we said instead of arguing against things that we never did say.

>>Christians are so intolerant of it? Why, for example, on this thread, are brickbats being thrown at atheists and a religious war against atheists is being waged?<<

There is no religious war against atheists. I made it clear that I was talking about the aggressive tactics of three people and three only. Mr Dawkins, Mr. Shaw and Musket. It is interesting to note that at different times the first two have disqualified themselves from the definition of atheist. Comb the thread. Try to find a negative comment about atheists that was not about these three or a reply to another speaker about the words of that speaker. I've argued that calling people of faith delusional is childish and mean. But no where have I said that all atheists do it. In fact outside this forum the only place I have seen it defended or done was by Mr. Dawkins.

So please, discontinue this line of attack and please read the thread before the next time you complain about the contents.
