ATHEISM

Atheism seems to have taken over in Ireland. It is the thing to profess whether one understands what it means or not. This 'trendy' atheism, whose sole purpose is to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, is just as self-serving as any unbending religious doctrine.

Is atheism a benign force in history?
Is everything morally justified in the absence of gods?
Is atheism a religion?

Does atheism generally place its faith in some other absolute (be it humanism, the march of history, materialism, the economy, or even hedonism - cuius venter deus est)?

Both atheist and believer wants disease conquered, poverty banished, war eliminated. But is it Stephen Fry's 'manic God' or man's mismanagement of the earth is the cause of them in the first place?
