The atheist activists are at each other’s throats again. Shockingly, it involves another one of their conferences – the Mythicist Milwaukee conference. If you have never heard of this conference before, it’s safe to say you are not alone. It sounds like another one of those atheist meet-ups that’s about one step above a Furry convention, yet two steps below a Trekkie convention.
Anyway, the Mythicist Milwaukee invited Sargon of Akkad, Armoured Skeptic, and ShoeOnHead to speak and I guess these atheists have a reputation of being anti-SJW. Well, as we all know, social justice atheists tend to freak out and get hysterical when people who are not “woke” are actually allowed to speak. So PZ Myers, the Happy Atheist, began to launch attacks on the Mythicist Milwaukee conference, accusing them of hypocrisy and sexism.
Well, one thing led to another, and next thing y’know, activist Steve Shives renounced all friendship with activist Seth Andrews (the Thnking Atheist) because Andrews refused not to attend. Hemant Mehta, The Friendly Atheist, is MIA. So along comes atheist activist Richard Carrier, well known for championing crackpot myther notions and getting a divorce to fulfill his polyamorous identity (not to mention he is still suing PZ Myers). Carrier tries to rise above it all and decides to go after activist Dan Arel, the atheist who advocates the use of violence:
Those other folks, like Dan Arel, who promote physical assault against Nazis, are also, BTW, calling Sargon a Nazi. 1+1 gets dangerously close to 2 there. And close enough indeed. As noted in that same thread by a sponsor of the con, someone has already been threatening to photograph and “out” anyone who attends the conference (and implying they’ll try to get them fired from their jobs). So now atheists are being threatened with being outed and fired. By the left. Thanks, Dan. That’s the kind of world you are creating. …..Dan Arel is all but saying someone should physically assault Sargon at the conference. And inspiring his own flying monkeys to spy on and “out” atheist attendees and try to fuck with their lives for going.
Carrier’s blog got a reply from one person, probably because you have to pay to post comments on his blog. But Arel, Champion of the Oppressed, must have got wind of it. And I’ll have to admit, he takes out Carrier with one blow:
Richard Carrier thinks I am damaging to the atheist community?
Which one of us is banned from events for serial sexual harassment?

One of these days I am going to have to make a Atheist Activist Scorecard. When these wingnuts start flinging feces at each other, it’s hard to keep track of who is who.
The moral of the story? If only you religious kooks would abandon your religion, you too could follow the Light of Reason and be part of the next showing of the Atheist Circus.
