"Neo-atheism, the belief that science is the only path to truth and all religions are equally deluded and destructive, has taken hold in much of the debate over atheism. The movement, whose keys figures include Richard Dawkins, the late Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett, is an ideology that arrogantly celebrates an understanding of everything through supposed reason and proof. It allows little doubt or questioning about the unknown. It also happens that some of these key figures, including Ayaan Hirsi Ali, are backers of state violence against Muslim countries since 11 September 2001."

I guess that makes me a neo atheists. I "arrogantly celebrates an understanding of everything through reason and proof" It is okay to question the unknown, but it is not okay to enter supposition as fact.

I'm glad Christianity is not a religion. It is a relationship.

In the Gospel accounts, Jesus was most critical of the religious folks in that time and gave the most grace to the humble sinners.

Toss your "religion" away. Christianity is about a person...Jesus!

God Bless and Happy 4th of July to all

Officially the stupidest thing ever written.

All you theists need to do is to provide some evidence, but instead you invent neoatheism.

Stupid ignorant lying f*cks.

I am an atheist, you know. I was quoting from the article and I commented that I must be neo atheist because I believe in using reason and logic.

..... Conflicts must be expected whenever the various invented belief systems fight one another for maximum possible market share.
