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.
