Very interesting, slightly depressing site, courtesy of Willie.  If you’re interested in crazy things done in the name of religion, this is the site for you.

    You are right, that site is VERY depressing.

    unfortunately, i don’t think anyone does things “in the name of atheism,” do they? If there is a question of clear accountability, could someone please phrase it?

      @ Uncommoner ,

      The collection of people who call themselves atheists is sufficiently heterogeneous that they have no unifying dogma. As individuals, they tend to reject the hypothesis that a deity exists. The strength of that rejection can be from very mild to very strong. There is certainly no hierarchical clergy that controls this “herd-of-cats”. This lack of organization, dogma, and “clergy” protects the individual atheist from being lumped together with others into a specific “ism”.

    I imagine you expect me to list all the different types of Atheism now.

    First “implicit atheism” which we can describe as an unconscious absence of theistic belief. (i.e: A newborn child.) By definition, if you’ve never heard of God, then you are atheist. (d’Holbach, 1772)

    Second is the more “explicit atheism” which we can call a conscious disbelief; the absence, not of knowledge, but of allegience to a God or gods.

    There are, undoubtedly, other types of atheism, where the the probability of “God exists” is questioned individually.

    To make my point, I agree with you. The lack of organization, dogma, and “clergy” protect individual atheist from being categorized under the idea of macro-atheism, but, then it is THAT individual’s atheism that is in question; of which there will be no answer for accountability.

      Uncommoner,
      I respectfully disagree, the *individual* is held accountable, not their atheism. Atheists don’t get to pretend they are “doing God’s will” and are therefore above reproach.

      @ Uncommoner,

      If you are an atheist, you know what you believe, and if you’re not an atheist, you know nothing about it. If you want to know more, talk directly with an atheist, and you may know something about what that one atheist thinks.

      You do not have the liberty to define atheism. Get over it!

        I realize that because atheists don’t have the “luxury” of doing God’s will, that they take account for their actions themselves, apart from any unified organization. My bigger argument is of their allegience, not to a God, but to a natural, answer-seeking foundation, if this is what it is. I may be digging too deep into a website’s background, but, they have a criteria for distinguishing the atheist, from the religious, thus leading them to create contrast and comparison between the two. This requires that the definition be stated, rather than implied.

        In which case, each two-liner, is a statement, then, not of allegiance anymore, but of accountability.

        Before i make my next statement, it is not entirely called for to define atheism, specifically, in order to account for its doings. Mainly that it was, itself, a core value in the happenings of such events. (ie, communism. There’s that “ism”again lol)
        So perhaps we could debate, definition (if even possible), and THEN accountability (if even allowed.)

        PS: it is not I who define atheism, hence citation.

          A: without, lacking
          Theism: belief in the existence of a god or gods.

          Simple.

        • Uncommoner says:

          I agree. no debate there.

          thanks for making that so concise and clear.

          (I need to start using RAmen more often lol)

    yea… Read the shit this website links too. 90% of them are all misunderstanding the article. Plus for all of those salem witch trial references in there you do know the whole town were agreeing with the girls who started that… So athiests also joined in. Attain knowledge before creating a website leading people to the wrong ideas.
