    [W:658]The Atheist-In-Name-Only



    This thread was inspired by recent post exchanges with Rich2018 and soylentgreen.

    Disclaimer
    This thread is about a particular brand of atheism, and a particular breed of atheist, and should not be taken as about atheism in general nor in particular about old-school atheism, the atheism of the 20th century or of the 19th century, which deserves the profoundest respect. This thread is about millennial atheism, Dawkins atheism, New Atheism, Know-nothing atheism. We all know the brand and breed.

    Theses
    1. Today's atheism has lost its way and is without a moral or semantic compass.
    2. Today's atheist is an AINO
    3. The AINO Creed is an incoherent manifesto

    Happy New Year to all DP atheists and theists alike!

    Sez the know nothing theist. Stop sitting on the fence and define what god is and back it up with evidence. Your vague, mushy god is not a god at all but a catch all for all the make believe that the god concept has led to.

    Reading issues or decency issues with you? Here, cover the left eye and try reading the OP request with the right; then the other way around.

    Nope. It never had any.

    You are probably wanting to talk about humanism.

    Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus were without a moral and semantic compass?
