Dinosaur on primitivism / Religious whackjob

Dinosaurs talking about the morality of primitivism. I love this cartoon. They always have great irreverent philosophical discussions.

Melinda Barton, fucked-up religious whackjob, has published an article which has the atheists up in arms. Her retarded position is that atheists are just as bad as Christians, and that the following "outrageous claims" from atheists demonstrate it :

Outrageous claim number 1: Atheism is based on evidence and reason and is philosophically provable or proven. Atheism is a matter of thought not belief. In other words, atheism is true; religion is false.
Outrageous claim number 2: Since the natural is all that we have or can scientifically observe and/or measure, it is all that exists.
Outrageous claim number 3: All religion is oppressive.
Outrageous claim number 4: The eradication of religion in favor of secularism will bring about utopia.
Outrageous claim number 5: All religious people want to force you or convince you or coerce you to believe as they do.

Yea, okay, maybe she has a point there. After all, these claims are far more outrageous than anything that Christianity tells us. You know, like - atheists cannot be moral, supernatural fairies can pop everything into existence, we are all guilty of the crimes of our ancestors, a man can be executed to redeem other people's actions, there is a spark in our brains that makes us do things and flies away at death, "Jesus" came back from the dead, and perhaps the most reasonable proposition of all, that "God" can wipe out all life on Earth and still be a perfectly moral being...

Compared to all of this perfectly reasonable stuff, we atheists look downright whacky, right ?

So... what would she prefer? Apatheism?
