Things every Modern Atheist Cultist says:
1: Atheism is not a belief, it’s lack of belief. It is totally non-ideological.
2: Atheism says nothing whatsoever about your personality or your views.
3: Atheism is about science, logic, reason, and evidence. Religion is the opposite of those things.
4: Atheism is about facts over feelings.
5: Atheism is something that helps you overcome religion–and you need to overcome religion because religion is backward superstition holding back humanity.
6: Atheism frees minds.and teaches people how to think for themselves.
Also, if you are an ex-Atheist, like me:
7: You were never a True Atheist.
8: You just don’t/never did understand True Atheism.
They all say all these things, without even noticing they are completely contradictory and, in some cases, demonstrably wrong. All you have to do is talk to any modern Atheist about Atheism for five minutes and you’ll hear almost all of these statements come out of their mouths.
Not only are these all firmly predictable beliefs of most Atheism Cultists, but they will say all these things to you while also saying with a straight face that Atheism is not a belief, a cult, or a religion, that it includes no definable beliefs of any kind, and claiming that their Atheism has no effect at all on anyone’s personality or worldview whatsoever.
Except somehow, even though it does no bad thing, Atheism makes you smarter, more logical, and more moral, and more caring as a person. Also more scientific, whatever that means.
Basically, Atheism gives them everything, including their entire sense of identity and morality, while they all, in unison, chant their most dogmatic Creedal statement:
“Atheism is just lack of belief. It has no other properties.”
The fact that it’s all demonstrably self-contradictory and demonstrably bullshit rarely registers on most of them.
Probably the best way to puncture the ludicrous Atheist lie of “Atheism is not a belief, it’s lack of belief” is to point out that things like rocks, bricks, and patients in comas also totally lack belief in God.
But really, I think ultimately, if it’s true that Atheism is just lack of belief in God or gods, then we should all agree that the best Atheists of all time are clearly bricks.
Personally, I’m glad I escaped Atheism. God only knows how these people manage to function as rational adults in other spheres of life.
“Escaping Atheism.” Watch this blog for more on that phrase in the coming months. “God and Man in the 21st century” and “Letter to a Heathen Nation” hasn’t quite caught on, so a retooling is coming!
