This is The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, not the RDF for Atheists. Atheism is just one subset of rational thinking. Many atheists are not rational thinkers. We had one woman who used to post here as an atheist, who ran a homeopathic store or something. She was always spouting nonsense about homeopathic universities and practitioners and what wonderful work they do. Every time she'd start up, Tyler Durden and I would pounce on her. I think she finally left.

My point is, atheism is just a lack of belief in deities. That's it. Hopefully, if you're smart enough to be an atheist, you're also going to try to approach other topics with a rational mindset. Sadly, it doesn't always work that way.
