Richard Dawkins
The Oxford University Professor Daniel Came wrote to the New Atheist Richard Dawkins:: "The absence of a debate with the foremost apologist for Christian theism is a glaring omission on your CV and is of course apt to be interpreted as cowardice on your part."[1]

As you can see HERE, atheism is doomed.

Militant atheists, you can start panicking now.

Or should I say, you can start panicking again (see: Causes of the New Atheism movement).

New Atheists do you need a handkerchief to stem your flow of tears (See: Decline of New Atheism)?

After all, we know that you lack machismo.

One of the definitions of machismo is an "exhilarating sense of power or strength".[2]

Consider this excerpt from Richarddawkins.net that was quoted from a column at Independent.ie:

So Mary Kenny thinks that there are more atheist men than women, and that this is the result of some sort of attempt at overt manliness on their part. She really must try to pay attention - to Richard Dawkins, for example whom one could hardly describe as being the epitome of machismo."[3][4]

Señor Dawkins is not the epitome of machismo? Militant atheists are not the epitome of machismo? See: Does Richard Dawkins have machismo?

Of course, we knew this was the case long ago (See also: Atheism and cowardice). When you cannot win your case intellectually, invariably you use the power of the state to indoctrinate (see: Atheist indoctrination and Atheism debates and Rebuttals to atheist arguments).

According to the University of Cambridge, historically, the "most notable spread of atheism was achieved through the success of the 1917 Russian Revolution, which brought the Marxist-Leninists to power."[5] See also: Atheism and communism

The atheism in communist regimes has been and continues to be militant atheism and various acts of repression including the razing of thousands of religious buildings and the killing, imprisoning, and oppression of religious leaders and believers.[6]

Mr. Fu vs. the sweaty-palmed, inscrutable Chinese atheists

See also: Growth of Christianity in China

China is the mother of all motherloads of atheism. It has the world's largest atheist population.[7]

When it goes, and it will go, there will be a lot of militant atheist tears.[8]

China is the mother of all motherloads of atheism. It has the world's largest atheist population.[9] When it goes, and it will go, there will be a lot of militant atheist tears.[10][11]

And if there is one thing inscrutable, militant, Chinese atheists hate is for you to detect that they are a bunch of sweaty-palmed atheists who are panicking about the explosive growth of Christianity in China which they are powerless to stop.

The Telegraph reported on December 19, 2012:

The notice, apparently issued in May 2011 by the General Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, suggests ongoing misgivings among senior leaders that religion, and in particular Christianity, poses a direct challenge to the ruling party.

Bob Fu, the founder of ChinaAid, the group which obtained and published the document, said the directive was proof China's central government was "directing a national crackdown against religious freedom especially targeting Christianity [in universities]".

Mr Fu claimed the document also indicated "panic" among Chinese intellectuals about the "rapid" growth of [China's] underground Christian population".

An official from the propaganda department of the State Council said they were unable to immediately comment on whether the document was genuine. But posts on the websites of several Chinese universities appear to confirm the leaked document's existence....

Yet despite government controls, the number of Christians in China has rocketed since the 1980s with many worshipping in illegal "house churches" which are subject to sporadic crackdowns. Some estimates suggest there are now as many as 130 million practicing Christians in China.[12]

On November 1, 2014, an article in The Economist entitled Cracks in the atheist edifice declared:

Officials are untroubled by the clash between the city’s famously freewheeling capitalism and the Communist Party’s ideology, yet still see religion and its symbols as affronts to the party’s atheism...

Yang Fenggang of Purdue University, in Indiana, says the Christian church in China has grown by an average of 10% a year since 1980. He reckons that on current trends there will be 250m Christians by around 2030, making China’s Christian population the largest in the world. Mr. Yang says this speed of growth is similar to that seen in fourth-century Rome just before the conversion of Constantine, which paved the way for Christianity to become the religion of his empire.[13]

European atheism: 200 plus years of atheist efforts wasted

atheism
Portrait of Paul-Henri Thiry, Baron d'Holbach (1723 - 1789) was an early advocate of atheism in Europe.

Like many atheists, he preferred to rest in his chair rather than engage in atheist street preaching and atheist missionary trips to Africa. See: Atheism and apathy

See also: Secular Europe

From a global perspective and universe perspective (Yes atheists, there are no little green men on other planets. See: Origin of life), Europe is more secular/atheistic than most of the rest of the world and universe, although it does have a considerable amount of religious immigrants who have higher birth rates (see: Atheist population and Global atheism).

The current atheist population mostly resides in East Asia (particularly China) and in secular Europe/Australia among people as white as a cocktail napkin.[14] See: Western atheism and race

As you can see HERE, 200 plus years of the efforts of European, militant atheists is going to start going down the proverbial drain in the 21st century. An no amount of French atheist sneering and mocking is going to change this (see: Atheism and mockery).

Atheists, you used to be so confident. What happened?

See also: Atheism and leadership and Atheism and cowardice

Worldwide, the march of religion can probably only be reversed by a renewed, self-aware secularism. Today, it appears exhausted and lacking in confidence... Secularism's greatest triumphs owe less to science than to popular social movements like nationalism, socialism and 1960s anarchist-liberalism. Ironically, secularism's demographic deficit means that it will probably only succeed in the twenty-first century if it can create a secular form of 'religious' enthusiasm." - the agnostic professor Eric Kaufmann, Birbeck College, University of London, UK, 2010[15]
