Good day to publish this. Not only is it Friday the 13th, but also a full moon.
At the end of 2010, I had the audacity to even dare to ask if atheism causes brain damage. Apparently, it is one of the ultimate crimes to question anything about the intelligence, morality or sanity of The Mighty Atheist™ because I received a number of attacks, misrepresentation and outright lies. (A guy can't even ask?) Later, atheists were incensed and went into full denial mode when I later pointed out that there is a definite link between atheism and autism.
They do tend to become furious and attack like piranhas at any perceived slight, or if someone criticizes one of their religious icons, such as Clinton Richard Dawkins:
For that matter, priests of atheism and evolutionism like Bill Nye and Neil de Grasse Tyson will tell blatant untruths and then their fanboys will gleefully spread them around.
Observing their behavior (especially online, where they can be bold and beautiful behind their keyboards), and drawing from other things I've learned, I realized that many modern atheists are not just people who happen to reject God. Atheism is not an intellectual position. Rather, it is a way to intellectualize, justify and suppress the truth in unrighteousness so they can indulge in moral corruption.
Moving forward now. An article caught my attention, "Profile of a Narcissistic Sociopath – Charming, Manipulative, Grandiose, Lying, Authoritarian, Secretive, Divisive…". It is not from a Christian perspective, but it has a few points that I would like to go over.
"They are egotistical to the point of narcissism. They really believe they are set apart from the rest of humanity by some special grace." I have heard it said (and fully agree) that many professed atheists do not disbelieve in God so much as they are so narcissistic, they are their own gods and there is no room for the real one in their lives. Especially because God cannot be impressed by human "wisdom" and accomplishment, but we must humble ourselves and accept him on his terms, not ours.
"They scapegoat; they are incapable of either having the insight or willingness to accept responsibility for anything they do. Whatever the problem, it is always someone else’s fault." Even when you catch one in a lie or an error, the blame is shifted; it's not my fault because someone else made me foul up.
"They are remorselessly vindictive when thwarted or exposed." I have gained stalkers who have never forgiven me for catching them in lies and logical fallacies, and I have documentation of the same treatment given to others. Instead, we are made to be the liars and the fools in their eyes, and they think we are concerned about what they think. Not hardly. But they do make for good examples so we can instruct thinking people.
"Feels entitled to certain things as 'their right.'" Such as the "right" to be able to make comments, and some get furious when they are not permitted to spout off with their abusive and irrational comments.
"Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others." Like I said, they make themselves into their own gods. Let me be blunt: In addition to this, they are attention whores. If you do not grant them a platform, the "right" to turn your social media area, Weblog or whatever into their own urinals, they have fits. Some even take an "I'm out to get you" approach, thinking they are doing the world a favor by attacking others through ad hominems and libel. In so doing, they seek to demonize the individual, since they cannot deal with logical arguments and engage in civil discussions for any length of time. Don't get me started on how so many of these militant misotheists are self-appointed experts on a multitude of topics...
"A Sociopath will always be smearing someone and inciting people against each other. Sociopaths do not want people to like or get along with each other and will try to 'divide and conquer.' They will say odd things to people in the social group: 'She doesn’t like you' or 'She doesn’t want me doing anything with you.'" This was particularly interesting to me because I see these people searching the Web and "recruiting" others in their campaigns of hate.
Twitter and YouTube are notorious for having people get others to join in on ridicule. More than once, I've caught an atheopath in logical fallacies, then suddenly I am expected to answer to about six people at one time (and barely able to type out four words in reply there). It is like schoolchildren who were caught smoking in the restroom and want to get others hating the teacher who caught them being rotten in the first place.
"Sociopath has a strange network of Support People ranging from 'consultants,' to skilled-workers, to enabling co-dependents that back him up when he wants to go after his Target. Most of the Support People have their own Psychological problems." Yes, they have their "dens" (as I call them) where they blaspheme God, and whine about Christians and "religion", whether it's the double-standard-laden Facebook, forums or other venues. There were times it read more like a support group than anything else. But it is really interesting to see some furious atheists whining about the big, bad Christians, getting so obstreperous that the other atheists consider them to be of no consequence.
I could go on with this article, add screenshots and links ad nauseum, but you get the idea. Take a look at "Profile of a Narcissistic Sociopath" and see how many you have encountered (endured) yourself. Keep in mind that they crave attention, and keep trying to provoke you to get it. It gets difficult sometimes (especially because so many attempt to manipulate you by appealing to your emotions and pride), but do try your best to leave them behind.
