First time poster. I was just thinking. Feel free to add or critique as these ideas are not fully fleshed out.
Anyway, religon is a faith based idea. In many ways, it is also the foundation for many people and how they live their life. As such, it would seem improbable that someone would suddenly come to the conclusion that their life philosophy, and by extension their life, is completely wrong.
It seems far more likely that the exact opposite would be true. Believers, having been pushed into a corner, would further solidify their belief. Furthermore, it seems reasonable that they would lash out against this perceived threat to their life (id, ego or whatever).
It just seems to me that the harder non-believers push, the more resistance they will encounter. Add to this, that believers far outnumber non-believers and there is the potential for a very real and harmful backlash against non-believers.
I'm not advocating that they be given free reign to do what they will. I'm just thinking that it is counter productive to poke the bear (so to speak).
Also, it seems necessary to change some of the vocabulary. The term atheism needs to be stricken. Maybe Secular Humanist would be more appropriate?
