Staunch atheist mythology

John Shook offers this very unappealing account of atheist mythology. ┬áStaunch atheists do say a lot of awful stuff, undoubtedly including much of what is listed here. ┬áBut the project of collecting and summarizing the oft-repeated bits of atheist dogma or mythology is such an intriguing one, I wish the result had been more sympathetic — something that the average atheist could read and feel at least slightly good about.

My own opinions differ vastly from those of the “average atheist” and would expect to find any list of commonly held atheist beliefs to be somewhat unappealing — but they shouldn’t be unappealing to the people who actually hold them, which I’m afraid this list would be.
