|This young atheist has got it bad.|
Do you have Atheist Fatigue Syndrome (AFS)? Many of the godless do and don't realize it. Early stages of AFS are difficult to detect. The disease progresses slowly while gradually breaking down the immune response against the absurdities of religion. However, there is no doubt that the syndrome eventually turns an otherwise happy, productive atheist into something unrecognizable. Recently the so-called prominent atheist blogger Leah Libresco succumbed to the late stages of AFS to become part of the worldwide criminal enterprise known as the Catholic Church.
What you should be asking yourself right now is Do I have AFS? And if I'm not asking does that mean I already have it? And if I don't care about whether or not I have AFS maybe it's too late. Perhaps I should just get me to a nunnery or monastary to live out the rest of my life as a slave to Yahweh?
Understandable sentiments, to be sure. But calm down.
- Join an atheist/secular meetup group. If there isn't one close by then start one.
- Be part of the atheist online community.
- Stay aware of the atrocities that religion are responsible for.
- Read the atheist classics: The God Delusion, Why I am not a Christian, God is not Great, etc.
