This is a pattern that all Left-Wing movements seem to follow. Any of them which get an enthusiastic following only exist for a short time before committing suicide by madness.
One of the more interesting articles I’ve read recently was a review of a book comparing Christianity and Islam.What made the article unique was the reviewer’s argument that among the forces hampering attempts to seek an Islamic reformation is “capital-A Atheism, that is Atheism as a proselytizing belief system.” In their undying attempt to tear down all religions, these atheist activists constructed a special form of relativism that says that “all religions are importantly identical” — and since there is no distinction, a Christian or Jew criticizing Islamic extremism is essentially criticizing themselves.
This, of course, is nonsense. The types of societies formed by these differing belief systems (state-sponsored atheism included) are as clear as day. But one need not concern themselves with this argument, because we are unlikely to encounter them anymore. Atheists are too busy attacking each other to harass people of faith. They are fighting not over anything having to do with atheism — but feminism! The Youtuber “Armoured Skeptic” (an atheist, but a cool one — not one of the nagging militant troll-y types) explains:
“This is exactly the issue that split the atheist community in two when Atheism+ reared its ugly head. The feminist communities started proposing regressive ideas, taking away people’s freedom of speech, punishing members for asking questions and proposing new ideas, and publicly shaming people, including women, for not toting the line. Essentially a group of bullies decided they wanted to police the community because they found it troubling.”
Internet atheist activism has become so irrelevant that I wouldn’t have even known about this inter-atheist conflict (which has been going on since 2011!) had I not looked up Christina Hoff Sommers’ 1994 book “Who Stole Feminism?” and stumbled across a hilarious video of “Skeptic’s” girlfriend “Shoe0nHead”. “Shoe” bought a used copy on Amazon full of notes written by an angry feminist “lit student” who owned it before her. The whole video is “Shoe” making fun of the feminist who decided to engage in a debate with an inanimate object — and apparently lost!
