Quote# 86094What Are the Emotional Attractions of Atheism?
Atheism appeals on many levels. The illusion of self-determinism, of superiority of mind (and caste), and of self-directed morals is totally compatible with the desire for the freedom to pursue whatever materialism, lust, indulgence or vanity one wishes. For Hitler it was the pursuit of the Master Race. For Hefner, sex and money. For the ACLU it is the capture of the next generation of children, on the road to communism. For Aldous and Julian Huxley it was sexual liberation. For Dahmer it was sexual perversion and cannibalism. For many I think it is the release from all moral authority.
There are no restrictions whatsoever imposed by Atheism. The idea that Atheism is benign just doesn’t wash.
