← The Myth of Militant Atheism

SRWB's Avatar Jump to comment 43 by SRWB

Those that have been visitors to this site for a few years will recall a similar round of discussions that focussed on all atheists, particularly the so-called 4 horsemen, as being "fundamentalist atheists". Remember Wee Flea and that ilk? This is merely the latest tactic to muddy the waters. "Militant" and "fundamentalist" are used interchangeably because both words have taken on a negative connotation in our language. It is meant to get our backs up since every strategist knows, offence is the best form of defence!
