Gatekeeper: I am saying that some groups of atheists, I call them sects of atheism, have violent reactions to the notion that we exist in a system that looks like life.

Tony: But that wasn't the main point of my post.


Gatekeeper: I realize it wasn't the main point, it was just an unclear statement. I would also expand that statement to: People, especially people in modern society which shelters them from differing ideas(safe spaces in university), have violent reactions to opinions that are opposed to whatever ideology they support, regardless of what ideology they subscribe to.


David:You're describing political correctness rampant among liberals.

Tony: When we lose our ability to challenge entrenched ideas, we are set for another round of the dark ages, only this time it will not be dominated by religion


David: Religion, at least the organized type, is losing its grip over the western world. Severe factionalism is what we are getting into.

How is battling over different ideologies different than battling over different religious beliefs?
