It's been open season on non-religionists for thousands of years. We've been taking the blame for everything bad and wrong in the world, from Hitler to Stalin to 9/11 the atheists, secular humanists get the public blame and scorn...
Nobody living is responsible for what happened a thousand years ago. Nobody living suffered it.
Who blames atheists for 9/11? Nobody I know, let alone the general public. Nor am I aware of atheists being blamed for Hitler.
Stalin may have been an atheist but I don't think many people equate all atheists as being Stalin-like.
How many regular posters here criticise people for being atheist? I can't think of any.
It was Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson who blamed 9/11 on secular humanists (they also credited lesbos and pagans as well). And not a day goes by where the tards at UD don't blame hitler's deeds on his atheism. Religionists also trelessly point to Stalin as an example of what secular humanism/atheism gets you at the godless store.
Intelligent design is a full frontal assault on secular humanism. You've heard of Intelligent Design I assume. It's like creationism but they use bigger words.
And you are aware that Bush I said atheists should not consider themselves citizens or patriots? And his mentally retarded son said no one but christians get to go to heaven.
This is pretty common stuff, religionists blaming atheism for pretty much everything as well as portraying them as wicked and dangerous (or just doomed to leading meaningless, unhappy lives). I'm surprised you weren't aware of any of this. You should get out more. Read the paper even.
There are several tards here to either blame secular humanism/atheism for the worlds ills, or they simply try and save us.
But my point was if the religionists dish it out they should plan to have some flung their way too. And those who get their feelings hurt because Dawkins thinks their beliefs are stupid might consider growing up or adopting ideas that are more bullet proof.
