So I've been browsing a lot of secular sites and reading people's comments and thoughts and have come to the conclusion that atheism is building a religion. Dogma, predispositions, and close-mindedness have crept in and sullied the name.
I'm reading now that if you don't believe this or that then you're not an atheist. ATHEISM ISN'T A TITLE, ITS A DESCRIPTION. It describes one who does NOT believe in a god or higher power... That's it.
If you are looking to belong somewhere and you need self-affirmation so bad then join AA. This site is to share ideas not to build a religion or dogma.
And for those who don't believe there is a god because your boyfriend/girlfriend dumped you then you deserved to have been dumped. Grow up, stop crying, and run into a wall. A bad reason is worse than no reason.
Atheist holidays, churches, and talking about mobilizing is absurd. "ALL ATHEISTS TO ARMS!" thats what the right-wing facists said for the election about there group. Do things for the sake of doing the right thing and not in the name of "atheism". If you really want to be like every religion then start one and call it 'The Church of the Same Old Shit Just With a Different Name' so people that care about knowledge and bettering the world can get back to work.
Lets get back to sharing knowledge and ideas and stop being just like every other religion on this planet. Although.. I guess thats just human nature.
