Ok, I’ve been a little busy and haven’t had time to write my own stuff this week. Hopefully things will calm down a little so I can get some time to write. What I’ve done, to fill in the blanks and stick to my daily posting schedule is… borrow from other people… credited and everything.

So, if you’re interested in the content below, you can find the original posts here (and you should go check out Godless Blogger’s blog, it’s pretty good):

Speaking of atheism. I read something awfully true on a christian site the other day. It said that atheism needs religion. When you think about it, it’s pretty much true. Without religion, there would be no atheists or atheism. The only thing that makes atheism into anything that resembles a community, the only thing that gives atheists anything in common, is religion. If there was no religion, if there was no pressure from religious groups, there would be no atheist groups or communities. If all religions gave up any political aspirations and went about their business quietly, I think every atheist group would evaporate over night.  This, I suspect this is the reason it is so difficult to organise atheists, we fundamentally only have one thing in common and that thing is not generally a unifying concept.

Just a thought.
