A conspiracy of fucktards*

Lawrence Auster (and his commenters) think the atheists have already taken over the world! Mwahahahahaha!
Why does the atheist-Darwinian movement, having become unprecedentedly dominant in the West, demonize Darwin doubters and in particular the bogeymen "fundamentalists," as though the latter--who are not exactly in charge of America, and who seem practically non-existent in Britain and Europe--posed a threat to the left-liberal order in general and the ascendant materialism in particular? Why is it that the stronger the materialist-atheists become, the more threatened, paranoid, and totalitarian they behave? (We've often discussed an analogous phenomenon in the homosexual rights movement, in which the more powerful the homosexualists become, the more paranoid and aggressive they become and act as though the slightest remnant of criticism of them anywhere is an intolerable threat.)
The kitten barbecue is every other Thursday, and don't forget those always helpful hints.

  1. And yet, this "fucktard" has a point. Scientific materialism remains a dominant force even in America, despite the fact that it seems to warrant vigilant defense against those whose political power is contingent on unquestioning faith. Sure, there is continuing discrimination against atheists and no shortage of willful stupidity in the world, but there's no point in pretending that we are victims or that a materialist worldview isn't ascendant. Even those who cling to religious belief hold materialist views to varying degrees.

    After reading the cited post again, as well as your comment, I'm still unable identify this "point" of which you speak.

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.
