Has The Fanaticism Of Militant Athreists Stigmatized Atheism Again


by Ian R Thorpe.

Not long ago, even though the nation had largely abandoned churchgoing, to describe oneself as an atheist carried a certain stigma. In the nineteen eighties and nineties that receded however as regular worshippers in Britain comprised just 6% of the population. Now however, thanks to militant atheism, the stigma is on the way back.

Has The Fanaticism Of Militant Athreists Has Stigmatized Atheism Again

by Ian R Thorpe 21 January 2012
A long time ago I had a hospital appointment to have a small cyst on my leg removed and duly reported to the out - patients reception.Naturally, the National Health Sertvice being a government run bureaucracy there were forms to fill in. Name, age, gender ( FFS ) questions about ongoing health problems, allergies, was I on any medication and the details of my next of kin were rattled of by a rat faced little clerk who wore cheap trousers and a very dodgy shirt. The final question was about my religion. "Don't want one", I said, I said, "Well I have to put something down, shall I put Church of England," said Rat Face.

"No, I'm not Church of England,"

"Christian?" The question was hopeful rather than expectant. Obviously this problem had arisen before.

"No, nothing, put none or not applicable." The clerk was nonplussed. "You're … umm ... ah ... a woss'name … an atheist, then? Shall I put atheist?"

"No, atheist is not a religion, Just put down 'none', or 'no religion'," I said.(This is before The Church of Scienceology was founded and claimed all non believers for it's congregation, even those as sceptical about science as they are about God.

The man who was given authority by his clipboard pronounced the word atheist with scorn as if an atheist was some kind of inferior being but he could not see that one might not be an atheist but simultaneously not a member of any religion. Because most people of my generation were baptised in the Church of England, Methodist, Presbyterian or Catholic faith the easy way out was to stick with that even if baptism was the last time a person had been to church. Atheists were stigmaitsed as outsiders, people who had made a conscious choice to stand outside the mainstream.

I have never liked the term atheist. It may have been Jonathan Miller's argument that non-belief in God is a narrow and entirely negative self-description that ignores all the other things you might either believe in or not, from homeopathy through necromancy to the Gaia theory. As a non believer I am sceptical about many things, not just the God of Abraham. But I am not dismissive of many things, if I wanted to be an atheist I would be a polytheistic atheist and not believe in thousands of gods; in fact I am not sceptical about Hindu and Pagan gods because both those systems have an entirely different concept of the divine that does not require followers to externalise and anthropomorphise divinities and such god are non interventionist.

Atheist is an inadequate guide to the to our spirituality. We have available far more eloquent ways of expressing in a word or phrase the moral compass that guides our behaviour and beliefs.

After a prolonged discussion which made me late for my appointment, rat face only relented when a nurse came from the surgery to see had I arrived. When the situation was explained she told tatty-trousers that stating a religion was not a priority day patients and dragged me away.

Years later the social atmosphere had changed. During a much longer stay in hospital I was visited by the ward chaplain. He hovered outside my room and coughed nervously to attract my attention before knocking and being invited in. He looked around as if checking for booby traps.

Was there a note on my record; "homicidally deranged atheist, approach with care."

But no, after he introduced himself and being invited to sit down and pour himself a glass of Apple and Mango juice. I told him I was not religious and we had a good chat about life, the state of the nation, hospital food and the books on my bedside cabinet, several of which he had read ... and of course my lack of religion as opposed to atheism.

After about half an hour he took his leave, shaking my hand and thanking me for talking. "You know", he said, "so many people put down "Church of England" but will not even talk to me. It's as if they are ashamed to say they have no religion. You have clearly thought deeply about things so it has been a pleasure to met someone who has a well formed idea of who he is."

I'd never thought of it like that.

Another day I was in the common rooms when a Catholic priest came in, he went to each inmate the duty nurse had identified as Catholic and had an identical conversation with each "How are you feeling? I don't want to disturb you when you're needing rest. It's good that you're feeling more your old self, so the nurses tell me. I'll be off now and leave you to your tea, they'll be round in a few minutes.

That was more or less what he said to each man. They nodded in return, and then the priest backed away.

Of all the people who came near our beds in any official capacity, the clergy were the most deferential and anxious not to intrude. What you might call the carer-patient discourse in a British hospital is conducted in a tone of ribald familiarity. You hear all kinds of surprising things, a buxom Lancashire lass will put her arm around an elderly Muslim and tell him to "Cough it up, Abdul love, it's better out than in." An equally young woman doctor, a specialist endocrinologist, of high caste and good Indian parentage once asked me as almost the first question if I had any problems getting an erection.

"I've ben more dead than alive for the past few months, it isn't really sometrhing I've thought about." I replied not wanting to tell her my red haired physiotherapist, while standing with her thighs wraped round my left leg as she firmly pushed my shoulder upwards. The physio told me she was trying to get elongation in my deltoids. She was getting elongation lower down. The doctor, Vikki, said "Do you get the morning glory, that would prove everything was in working order".She might have stepped out of a 1960 low budget comedy film, Carry On Nurse or something. Priests and vicars seemed to have no clue about how to introduce their speciality, the most embarrassing topic of all. God.

The unit I was doing rehab in did not just take stroke survivors. We had all sorts including many people whose problems had been caused in part at least by smoking. After the unit's smoking ban was raised as a human rights issure (before I was there, the nurses told me,) a conservatory had ben built for use as a smoking room.

Most of the emphysema, thrombosis and generally gummed up lungs and arteries people's breathing sounded like a battered old accordion tuning up. Even so, right after breakfast they would disappear en masse to the conservatory where they could light up. And these were people who needed to have a bottle of oxygen fixed to their wheelchairs and spent a couple of hours a day on nebulizers.

"You've just got to co-operate and stop smoking, otherwise you're going to be in hospital until you die," I overheard the consultant telling one man. It is a prognosis nobody who has tasted hospital food wants to hear. They guy whose lungs were failing faster than a dunk on a driving test told his fellow patients however, " (wheeeeeze)All that being told not to smoke (cough cough) just make me smoke more (gasp, wheeze): It's the stress you see, they gets me all wound up."

There was an idea among the smokers that the hospital was paid for everyone they persuaded to stop smoking." They may have ben right, we have not dug down to anything like the bottom of the Labour government's dodgy dealing with big pharma yet.

The fact is the hospital was rewarded for survival rates so their incentive was to get people discharged in a state that would allow them to survive three months. Statistically this was a successful outcome for the hospital . What hospital managers, staff, polticians and academics seem unable to understand however is that people are not afraid of death. Surviving a few extra months is not seen as a goal worth giving up a pleasure or addiction for. And if anyone tries to play the God card to scare committed smokers they will be told if God had not wanted us to smoke he would not have given us tobacco.

It is ironic that the non believers like me and the never-thought-about-it types like that old smoker are far more open minded about religion than the science worshipping militant atheists who lay claim to open mindedness but are really as tunnel visioned as the most fanatical religious fundamentalist. The non academic, non religious mass tend to be far more existentialist in their outlook than the so called rationalists. While the science fans try to find the meaning of life, explain the workings of the universe and conquer death the truly enlightened know that we all make our choices and must live with the consequences, what will happen will happen and in the end there is only one outcome which neither prayer nor science will change. The attitude of those working class fellow patients is that God will do as he pleases if indeed there is a God and a judgement. And though they have never heard of Pascal's wager they know that there is nothing to be gained by declaring for atheism and always the chance the atheists are wrong. So when life ceases to be of any value to them there is no point giving up the few pleasures they have left to delay an inevitable event they do not fear or dread.

The truly strange thing is while the monomaniacal rambling of writers like Dawkins, Dennett and Hitchens have established cult like followings among the younger professional classes, the university educated rationalist intellectual bullies who call themselves "progressive liberals" they have made the bulk of the population regard atheists as shrill, illiberal anti - religionism. A large part of this is due to the abandonment of the renaissance education in favour of a "scientific" education that demands specialisation at far too early a stage. My generation were equipped to examine the opposing cases and form our own opinions. Today's science infatuated "secular humanists" seem only able to repeat the dogmas handed down to them by the hierarchy of the academic priesthood. This has marked them as intolerant, self righteous and blinkered, they are not prepared to entertain any ideas that fall outside the narrow scope of "scientific thinking."

Reincarnation: Is There Scientific Proof We Can Live Again?
by Ian R Thorpe.

What happens to us after death? It is a question humans have asked since men first stood erect (fnrr, fnrr). Is there scientific proof of reincarnation or are such things just superstitious delusions? All the main religions and there many branches believe something of us survives physical death but is ir possible the non phyical portion of our being (the soul?) can inhabit more than one physical body? Might there be scientific proof of reincarnation?

Principled Agnosticism


Principled Agnosticism, a phrase coined by UK writer Madeline Bunting offer a path between absolute faith and absolute atheism of the militant, science worshipping kind.

Theosophy For Beginners
Those two old friends of Greenteth Multi Media, Philo and Sophia, are dedicated to spreading wisdom and understanding. It's natural then that their page here should include a sub menu on Theosophy, an almost forgotten belief system now although it was only founded in the nineteenth century. Theosophy is based on the ideas of Helena Blavatsky and while it drawns on the ancient wisom found in Hindu, Budhist and Zoroastrian teachings it is fully compatible with Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox versions of Christianity as well as Jewish and Muslim beliefs.

The War Between Science and Religion When cosmologist Martin Rees was awarded the Templeton Prize for scientific work enhancing the spiritual side of life the militant atheists reacted with predicatable angry intolderance. Their intolerant attitude seems to have done more to harm the scientific community than to turn paople against faith and religion.

Are The Cultural Poles FlippingReligion and Science (which some people have turned into their religion) have failed to provide the certainties, the sense of security, that many people seek. First religious convicion was eroded by science and then faith in science collapsed when it's certainties dod not stand up to the logical tests of the real world. Can existentialims offer a third way or is its acceptance of uncertainty to challenging?

The Flight From FreedomFleeing from freedom seems like a contradiction, after all we usually asdsiciate flight with escaping from captivity. In this first part of Existentialism for Beginners however the author identifies a human instinct that predisposes us to seek illusory safety by conforming and being part of the crowd rather than embarking on the lonely life of the free thinker, the person who truly makes their own decisions and follows their own path.
The Abuses Of Science
With science evangelists increasingly on the back foot as more and more "breakthroughs" are exposed as fraud at worst and hyperbolic self publicizing at best Mary Midgely argues that where scientits went wrong was in denying that science has limitations that render it unsuitable to answer the questions raised by philosophers.

There are many cod philosophies based on positive thinking. But when does positive thinking stop and self delusion start. Are the positive addicts really trying to help with their positive thinking tips or are they really just trying to share their addiction and draw you into their bubble of unreality. Ian R Thorpe bursts the positive thinking bubble...

Atheists Miss The Bus


There have been concerns recently among mainstream atheists, non-theists and non specific non belieers that while we can get along with people who make religion a part of their lives for whatever reason, the mititant type of atheism being promoted by a clique consisting mostly of London based media type and academics in the sciences is attacking that mutual tolerance that has existed between followers of moderate faiths and people who choose to reject faith. An example of the way these atheists are trying to turn non-belief into a religion is summed up in their decision to put advertisments on London buses stating "There is probable no God, now stop worrying and enjoy your lives. The idiotic arrogance of the assumptions behind that line are gobsmacking.

Our Debt To Islam


In the dark ages the light of wisdom was almost extinguished in Europe and North Africa by the religious fanaticism of Christians. Read how the scientific knowledge accumulated by ancient civilisations in India, the Middle East and around the Mediterranean Sea was kept alive in the Islamic world and retransmiited to Europe through the independence of Christian monastic orders.

What kills more women than AIDS and breast cancer? Dirty water - TRFN

By Maria Caspani NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Diseases spread through dirty water and poor sanitation are the fifth biggest killer of women worldwide, causing more deaths than AIDS, diabetes or breast cancer, researchers say. Nearly 800,000 women die every year because they lack access to safe toilets and clean water, said the development organisation WaterAid, which analysed data from the Seattle-based Institute of Health Metrics research centre. "This completely unacceptable situation affects women and girls' education, their health, their dignity and ultimately, in too many cases, results in an early and needless death," WaterAid CEO Barbara Frost said in a statement. The only conditions more fatal for women than the lack of decent sanitation are heart disease, stroke, lower respiratory infections and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, according to the report.

Missing sprinter from Sierra Leone sleeping rough in London
A sprinter from Sierra Leone, who disappeared after competing in last year's Commonwealth Games, has been sleeping rough in London, afraid to return home because of the Ebola virus, the Guardian reported on Friday. Jimmy Thoronka raced in the 4x100 metres relay in Glasgow but disappeared at the end of the competition in August. It was difficult to continue with competing but I tried to carry on... "I wanted to go to London for a while after the Games but my bag with my money and passport in it was stolen at Glasgow station. "I was scared to go to the police in case they arrested me and put me in a cell so I begged someone at the station to pay my fare to London and they agreed to do that.” While watching an African TV channel, Thoronka discovered that his mother had also died of Ebola and later found out that his entire immediate family had been killed by the virus.

Paedophilia normal in human males? Is it really Professor?

Labour's Multicultural, Utopian Paradise?
Boggart Bloggers had a good idea what the Rotherham sex abuse report, published yesterday, was going to contain for quite a while.

GM babies? How About The Frankenstein Lobby Try A Bit Of Honesty And Call It Eugenics
As the British Parliament debated legalising the use of techniques to create three parent babies and the dishonest champions of scientific fascism claim is is a perfectly safe development to remove faulty genes from humanity and in no way similar to programs with the same aim carried out in Nazi Germany, we challenge them to be honest and admit what they propose is Eugenics, a morally repugnant quest to create a master race. And all three main political parties support it.

Obama Lubes Up And Bends Over To Service The Worst Corporate Tax Dodgers
Obama was always the corporate candidate. It is any wonder then that under his presidency, in spite of promises to redistribute wealth from rich to poor, the wealth gap between rich and poor has grown immensely wider? Is it any wonder that under his presidency the anti democracy trade deals TTIP and TPP are being pushed on the world, even though they will benefit the worst corporate tax dodgers?

Google Driverless Car Project - there are still a few snags to be ironed out
We said when it was first announced nearly a year ago that the Google driverless car was a non starter. It was not just the fact that Mercedes are miles ahead, nor Google's lack off attachment to reality. It was not the obvious (to those who have worked in the industry) tchnical problems, but the fact that people don't like giving control to machines that will scupper it. Oh and the insurance problems.

Medical experts furious that doctors will be paid to dole out 'risky' statins DOCTORS are set to get extra payments to hand out controversial statin drugs to patients who face a low risk of ever developing heart disease.

The Death Of Democracy - Lobbying For TTIP
For some years now I and my libertarian friends in the blogosphere have been warning that democracy in the west is under threat, elected governments having been infiltrated by lobbyists working for a corporate elite.

When Politicians Don't Have A Clue How To Deal With A Problem They Pretend It Does Not Exist.

The age of financial privacy is over
Yes you read that right. The fascist regime in the USA has usurped to itself the right to raid bank accoutns anywhere is the world.

Daily Stirrer occasional contributor Graham Lear returns to one of our favourite themes, the climate change hoax, part of a program of scaremongering being engineered by enemies if freedom and democracy in the higher echelons of scoiety.

Transhumanism - Elitist and Mad Scientist Collaboration To Turn Us Into Automatons.
Transhumanism: there are two definitions, the production of human animal hybrids with the aim of producing superhuman creatures and the merging of humans with machines as a shortcut to creating programmable decives with human instinct, logic and congnitive skills.

From Keynesian Shangri-La To Outright War

Everything You Need To Know About The Greek Crisis.

Greece Votes On Whether Its People Have Any Future The voters of Greece will choose today, whether their country, the cradle of democracy, has a future of not. They are voting in a general election which could result in Greece trying to renegotiate the terms of its bailout with international lenders and even quitting the EU if the expected victory for hard line left wing party Syriza.

Democracy: Does It have A Future Or Has Global Totalitarianism Won?
The General Election in Greece (January 2014) could have much wider effects than most elections in small nation, the vote could decide the future of the European Union and have a major breaing on whether democracy can survive the push towards government by a global, corporate oligarchy. It look like being an interesting few months if the anti - EU party wins as polls suggest they will.

People Are Waking Up To The Fact That The European Union Is On The Fast Track To Fascism.
Greece has a General Election and it looks as if the anti - EU, extreme left Syriza party will win comfortably. In previous elections that went against the Euronazis in Brussels, the democracy hating bureaucrats simply told the sovereign government of the member nation that the vote was not acceptable. If their try to overturn the Greek result in the same way it will trigger massive civil unrest.

German Anti-Islamisation Marches: What the Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want You to Know
For people who rely for news on mainstream media, what is increasingly known in Germany as the ‘liar press’ (Luegenpresse), the narrative that the racist, anti Islam protestors have turned nasty might stick. And when the reports throw in salacious details about the former leader of this movement and his colourful past, or the tragic death of an immigrant man who was killed shortly after a demonstration in Dresden last week, the pro immigrant propaganda starts to look like the voice of reason.

So Who's Making Up Innuendos About Leon Brittan
The rumor mill has gone to warp speed following the death of alleged dossier - shredder Leon Brittan.

The Death Of Democracy - Are The Elites Running Scared From Public Opinion
When did democracy go out of fashion. I don't remember voting on whether we wanted to give up our civil liberties or be ruled by a dictatorship of unelected bureaucrats from Brussels, but that is where we are heading, along with the other free nations of Europe. And the USA, so-called land of the free is further along the road to fascism than Europe.

Why the war on CO2 has done far more harm than good
Warmageddonists send a lot of time screeching and scaremongering about the potpentially catastrophic outcomes of increased atmospheric CO2 levels, exaggerating their claims wildly in order to frighten people into supporting their war on the oil and coal industries. Policies formulated to tackle the imaginary threat of anthropogenic climate change have ...

Researchers Discover How to Use Living Plants to Generate Electricity.
Most of the hyped green energy solutions to generate electricity from wind or sunshine are so obviously flawed the only thing that makes them economically viable is that governments offer huge subsidies to generators.

Je Suis Saussice (in defence of your right to eat pork sausages)
Just as we showed solidarity with the publishers of Charlie Hebdo magazine after twelve staff were murdered by religious extremists and defended the right of citizens in democratic nations to criticize religion by saying "Je Suis Charlie" so we are now making a stand in support of the freedom to eat sausages (which is an abomination to Allah apparently,) by saying "Je Suis Saussice".

Trade Treaties Fast Track Not A Done Deal, The People Will Stop It
The fast tracking of two trade treaties, TTIP and TPP that the corporate gofor, President Barack Hussein Obama, is pushing in the hope that the deals, will enable him to complete the task he was shoehorned into office for by transferring control of national laws from elected governments to corporate lawyers, looks to be stalling.

More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality

We’re told this week that Washington’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center (NOAA) had finally crunched its numbers for 2014, and Al Gore is a very happy man, as are the armies of amateur climate experts who take government scientific announcements as gospel.

Could 'DNA editing' lead to designer babies? Designer babies, human / animal hybrids, these things have been in wet dream territory for scientists for a long time. But now due to techniques such as DNA editing, they are getting worryingly close to reality. And as has been demonstrated many times, scientists have zero uderstanding of where the ethical boundaries lie.

We said 2014 was the warmest year on record
 but we’re only 38% sure we were right - NASA
Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all. Does that mean 97% of climate experts are 62% sure they are wrong? The thing with half-truths is that they generate a glorious fog, but it has no substance. Ask of the spin-cloud a couple of sensible questions and the narrative collapses.

More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality

Believe The Phoney Narrative Or Be Branded a Conspiracy Theorist.
Right now the west is in big trouble, the move led by Russia and China to dump the petrodollar as global currency has provoked the Americans to lead the wesern allies into an economic war that we cannot win. Why not? One word: debt. A shooting war is the only option but it's by no means certain the allies would win that.

Seventy Years Down The Line And We Have Come Back To Appeasement As A Means To Peace.
As a spate of increasingly bloody and violent attacks on civilized values and the democratif freedoms of the western nations (free speech for example) continues to cause revulsion among the general population, our spineless leader are calling on us to be tolerant.

Russia throws down the gauntlet: energy supply to Europe cut off; petrodollar abandoned as currency war escalates
There are some big moves taking place on the global stage that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World War III. Yesterday Russia cut off its natural gas supply to Europe, "plunging the continent into an energy crisis 'within hours' as a dispute with Ukraine escalated," the Daily Mail reported.

Six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine today, in a sharp escalation of ...

Europe’s Intensifying Immigration Debate
In an absolutely gobsmacking psychological meltdown and an unparalleled display of bourgeois self hate, the former Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt demonstrated how wide the gap between the political and academic elite and reality has become in the materially advanced democracies.

‘Uncaged Corporate Parrots’ Of The Political Elite and The GMO False Narrative
The Environment Secretary in the UK Coalition Government, Elizabeth Truss has argued that genetically modified (GM) food should be grown in Britain because it is more ‘eco-friendly’. She adds that steps should be taken to speed up this development.

Earth’s CO2 Levels Pass Global Warming ‘Milestone', Nothing Happens - Daily Caller.
After two decades of panic stricken scientists and screeching lefties wailing about the catatrophe that would ensue once the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere passed 400 parts per million, that figure was reached in December 2014. No islands sank, no ice caps disappeared, no cities were incinerated. Which is pretty much what those of us who recognize the science of scaremongering when we see it predicted would happen.

Who’s a Charlie? France cracks down on free speech in order to defend it

Labour's Cockfish Reveals How Mainfesto Will Piss You Off.
All three main parties in the UK General Election are campaigning from a Politically Correct Consensus (i.e. Control Freak) platform. But whenm it comes to politically correct control freakery, Labour will always outdo the others.

Oxford University Bans All Things Pig Related In Support Of Free Speech
When does being reasonable and open minded become cowardice?

Insane Science Pushing The Earth Towards Ecocide. At the Daily Stirrer we have suspected it for a log time, science is insane, a game for the ethically challenged and sociopathic to compete to be first to develop a new plague, or a death ray, or to trash the enviromnent in pursuit of political power or corporate profits for their paymasters. There's even a name for what they are doing now, Ecocide.

A Republic Always Decays Into Oligarchy. Here's Why
Almost a rehash of Schumpeter's warning, that capital alwaysd contains the seeds of its own destruction while socialism always leads to fascism. I guess the old Austrian economist was trying to tel us the only thing that works is chaos. I can live with that.

France sees dozens of anti-Muslim incidents.
No doubt our leaders and the media will condemn the backlash from ordinary French people to the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Random attacks on decent Muslims are wrong. but how long do the elites expect us to keep showing tolerance when they have done nothing about a long standing problem.

The Debt Ponzi Deconstructed
Most of us are familiar with the concept of GDP as a measure of economic health. If GDP increases, the myth goes, then the economy has grown. It is a measure of how effectively or efficiently we are utilizing our assets to generate wealth. The idea is that the more I invest the more notional returns I can generate. Unfortunately GDP is a false economic measure, it only measures the rate at which money churns around the economic system.

In The War On Terror, Freedom Is Not Winning While we would like to write about more positive things, protecting democracy and free speech, guiding people towards healthy lifestyles, how we the punters can save the planet (especially from the idiocies of the Warmageddonist lobby) and so on, we find far too much of our time is spent trying to get the truth about important issues in front of readers. Mainstream media has abandoned news reporting in favour of simply repeating government and corporate propaganda. Terrorism is one issue on which you will only finds out facts from new media.

Why Iceland Recovery Is Being Ignored In Mainstream News
Iceland is a small country with less that half a million people so is not a good comparison with Britain. It's recovery from near bankruptcy in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis however is due to the rejection of politically correct, globalist politics so in that light it serves to illustrate that to suggest Britain (60 million people) cannot survive outside the EU is just globalist scaremongering.

The Euro Is Closer To Collapse Than Anyone Cares To Admit.
A victory for the anti EU Syriza Party in the Greek elections later this month would lead to a Greek default on its massive sovereign debts. This in turn would mean Greece would have to quit the EU.

It is going to be interesting to watch this one play out.
