What "atheism" is not

Dear fundamentalist Christian friends, please take note.

"Atheism" is not:

  • a word which describes everyone you disagree with.
  • a word which is interchangeable with "science".
  • an adequate descriptor for Adolf Hitler (who strongly believed God had a destiny for the German people).
  • a word used to describe anyone who is an unbeliever in the gospel - not all unbelievers are atheists.
  • a word you can apply to someone so you don't have to deal with them as valid human beings and can write them off.

Thank you for your consideration.
