Free thought isn't bias by Supyloco Free thought isn't bias by Supyloco
It doesn't. The problem is that dogma isn't just about religion since it also applies to monarchies as well. Although Atheists can be very intelligent. It doesn't mean they are all free thinkers. It seems that many Atheists move with any theory of science. What does that mean? It means that if science doesn't know it. They think it doesn't exist. The problem is that in dogma you have to agree with it. Many Atheists believe the Big bang is fact even though the scientific community doesn't agree with it and aren't sure of it. But many Atheists think it's fact. Another problem with it is that Atheists think they shouldn't have the burden of proof but that's being ignorant. You also have to make an argument to why God doesn't exist. Or any Deity for that matter. Science isn't bias to any religious belief. It's just there and it says it like it is. 50 years ago we thought it was okay for a woman to smoke and drink while being pregnant. But as we studied science more we found out it was a bad idea. A century ago we didn't have the cure for Polio. But then we found it. But it's not just about Atheists. The problem also applies to the religious because they live in the most obvious dogma. I mean the Abrahamic faiths believe it's a sin to eat shrimp. So the point of this stamp is that you can't generalize a group of being stupid. It just depends on the individual and how he or she does things.

I'm a norm-break because the way around seems to think is forced on them, like they don't have their own thoughts... all dem sheeple...

Being a free thinker means coming to your own conclusions about things, not doing what is considered 'different' or 'special.'

While it's certainly true that there are atheists who are uneducated and believe in science as some sort of holy grail (which is sad, the least thing you can do as an atheist is read up on basic scientific principles, that way they'd understand that nothing is absolutely certain in science and most things are even much less so), I have to disagree on the burden of proof part.

I certainly agree that one should be able to make an argument for why it is highly unlikely that any god exists, but the burden of proof is not equal on both sides of this argument. Most of it lies with the theist, because the theist is the one making the claim. The atheist isn't technically making a contrary claim, the atheist merely rejects the truth of the theist's claim. That's not a claim in and of itself, and while one should certainly be able to say why one rejects it (that's just common courtesy, after all), the burden of proof still lies with the one making the claim - the theist.
While I am an Atheist, I agree that everyone can be a dick. I also believe that any dogma preferred by government is bad. As such, I do not support Marxist-Leninism or State Atheism. I am a secularist however so I want no religion in government. Ergo: I don't think that New Atheists want State Atheism but, are Secularists.

but do not get me wrong, I agree with you, very.

um, Atheism is not an assertion, (at least how i see it) it's nothing more than the absences of belief in
gods/ a god.

This isn't really a problem of atheists but rather a common problem of all people understanding the process of science.
That is correct.
