As of October 2017 months of research and analysis on behalf of the organization The Atheist’s Apostle has discovered “memes” to be a major tool of evangelism for atheists. Thousands of atheists who claim that their atheism is merely a lack of belief in a god have taken to the internet in storm in hope to evangelize others with their lack of belief. The Facebook page the Philosophical Atheist has put aside most of his philosophy for the last couple of years to reach multitudes of Facebookers with memes suggesting how irrational all religion is.
So far it seems their lack of belief is spreading across the net at a phenomenal rate. One Richard Dawkins fan by the name ‘dawkins_disciple_666,’ for example, posted a long, meandering rant online wherein he argued that atheism is the only mature, rational position one can hold regarding the existence of God. The 34-year-old explained in his testimony that he converted to atheism by a series of memes on the internet,
“Unlike those brainwashed fundies, we atheists rely solely on logic, reason, and interspection [sic],” the man posted in Reddit’s r/atheism subreddit—the same place where, several months prior, he had come to accept the atheistic worldview after viewing a disparaging ‘philosoraptor’ meme along with an anti-religion “condescending Wonka” image. “I don’t get how anyone can commit intelectual [sic] suicide by saying they belief [sic] in some all-powerful magic fairy god out there up in the sky somewhere. Grow up!”
“Atheism truly is the only logical position,” his testimony concluded, “and the memes are decisive in determining that.”
