Is It a Coincidence?
Is it a coincidence that new atheism makes people more aligned with western culture (even celebrating many holidays that are religious in nature with them), western and European customs and make them hate their own heritage and indigenous culture, reducing all its history and way of living as “superstitious” and “backwards”.
Is it a coincidence that new atheism makes people give all the credit of advancement and social prosperity to western colonial societies and that the reason people in third world are in bad shape is simply reduced to “they are not civilised”?
"It doesn’t matter whether you believe that God is or Jesus is going to descent from the sky and lift us all up into paradise or that science and reason is somehow going to create the perfect world, both of these belief systems are self-delusional."
Chris Hedges on how new atheism is similar to religious fundamentalism
