Recent Rending the Veil post at “Ignorance: The Real Enemy” is an entry by Nico Psyche in an exchange about atheism, magick and mysticism.
“In an absurd tirade ludicrously titled ‘Atheism — The Real Enemy,’ Donald Tyson misrepresents atheism and atheists in general, portraying us as fiendish creatures out to dispel the glamours of religion and spiritual belief from the credulous but duped masses.
Tyson appeals for Christian and Pagans to unite in their common belief in god(s) (of some kind or another) against the rising atheist threat. This simply isn’t necessary. If Christians and Pagans want to be friends, let them be friends for the right reasons, and not simply to become united in hatred against a common enemy, fabricated though it may be, as in Tyson’s vicious portrayal of The Atheist.”
