Food For Thought
While surfing the net today, I found it interesting to note the priority of subjects listed on the homepage of the American Atheists Website, a site that discusses things like Atheism, Youth and Family, The Courthouse, Coming Out, The Church, Islam and the Koran, The American Atheists Magazine, etc.)
Would you like to guess the order of their list?
Their list by order is as follows:
A WELCOME FROM THE PRESIDENT
THE VISITORS CENTER
WHAT’S NEW - At The American Atheists Web.
YOUTH AND FAMILY
THE BONE PIT
THE PUBLIC SQUARE
ISLAM AND THE KORAN
STATE WEB SITES
THE SHOPPING CATALOGUE
ATHEISM - Articles about Atheism and Atheists.
SEARCH - Search through our site!
AMERICAN ATHEISTS FLASH LINE
THE AMERICAN ATHEIST MAGAZINE
RSS NEWS FEEDS
QUESTION: Shouldn't legitimate belief systems (and interest groups/organizations)not only be able to stand on their beliefs and set those beliefs as the foremost concern? Isn't it interesting that immediately following the basic welcome information, you find the "courthouse", the "schoolhouse", "youth and family", the "church", and "the marketplace" as the first subjects discussed (and in that order), and that it's not until the fourteenth subject in the list that you find the subject of "Atheism", ... and this on an American ATHEISTS website!
Do you think think this is by chance, or design? Do you think their battle is one they first and foremost intend to fight on the level of the mind, or through legislation and indotrination?
Food for thought....
