There are some people who say that atheism is the new religion, mimicking how established religion like Islam and Christianity is mocking “non-believers” as ignorant, anti-science and irrational. The media have already painted people like Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins as “fundamentalists”.
Some has likened the “revived Atheism movement” to the “crusaders” and those who “carry out jihad” and have labeled them “evangelists”. Note that I am using quotation marks here as I am using words that are not my own. How would you respond to this?
