Atheismolus......a new religion???
Thru tweeter and later other feeds I ended up reading about the "new" atheism, http://freethoughtblogs.com/carrier/archives/2207/ , it seems to me to be more on the religious side than anything else. It has a you are with us or against us mentality. How to behave, they have rules, it just seems more douchbaggery than anything else, especially how Richard Carrier conducts himself already in the responses. The whole compassion part just reads like many theistic views, the whole ostracizing of others, again very much of a cult/religious things. Forget about the whole part in personal integrity about sin and hypocrisy. It just so cultist to me....than and I never thought that I had to be told how to be have from other people that don't believe in god, I never thought that atheism was A) a culture, b) a way of life.....to me and many of my black, white, female, male, gay, straight and others atheists I know it has always been just a disbelief in god, anything beyond that was a philosophy be it anarchy, marxist, socialist, pacifist etc, etc, etc.
