Dear James, dear All!
This is an interesting subject: The psychology of religious disbelief.
Atheist psychologists have for a couple of generations misused state
money to research the psychology of religious belief, as if religious
belief is someting stupid and abnormal, and atheism is something
intelligent and normal. Today the table is starting turning.
The 6 best known so called new atheists are now generally more and
more discovered to be bad philosophers and partly aggressive, and
not so fine personalities. (See my messages to this group, for example.)
Dawkins has treated Islamic female students very bad, ridiculing
them. See, for example, the Youtube video where Dawkins
is extremely dull and unfair to the female students. See Hitchen,
Dawkins, and some other new atheists smoking themselves to death
(actively and passively) in front of TV camera. Other ingredients
are, for examples, mass divorse and old slavery money. Yes, indeed,
there is plenty of solid information at hand for researching the
psychology of atheists and atheism. It's high time to have the
atheists tasting their own medicine.
