Atheism 101: US Government Endorsed

Atheism is, of course, the religion of self; atheism is self-worship. Before Marx and Engels, atheism was called narcissism. According to this popular site, an atheist exhibits at least 5 of the following symptoms:

  • has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
  • is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
  • believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
  • requires excessive admiration
  • has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
  • is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
  • lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
  • is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
  • shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

    Thank you! for this piece.
    On a site which I post my art and photographs to, I have often worked to present the skeptical side of climate change. I have often been attacked by the very people you describe above.
    I’m planning to slam them with a lot more information (that they will ignore, of course), but I know it will get thru to Some people….

    Added you to my read list.

    This is funny.

    It is actually difficult to get some atheists to commit to the meaning of the term. Atheist has been defined as a person who believes that there is no God/Creator. However, if you ask an atheist how they can know this with any certainty, they say that the term atheist just means that one does not know if there is a God/Maker. But the term for that is agnostic.

    There is a sense in which, if claims of certainty are made by an atheist, then this would qualify as a religion. (:
