If there was ever any doubt that Atheists can be just as susceptible to fundamentalism as any other religion, then take a look at this new video game under development by a “zealous” humanist.
You can see video footage and a transcript here.
The object of the game is to stop the spread of Christianity and Islam by murdering Abraham and the authors of the Bible, before beheading Muhammad.
“It’s the idea of being able to go back in time and sort of nipping the problem in the bud,” said the game’s creator.
What problem would that be, the problem of violent extremism?
Yes, I am being sarcastic.
It’s not that I am suggesting all Atheists are fundamentalists. I just seek to demonstrate that we theists don’t have a monopoly on fundamentalism any more than we have a monopoly on truth. Fundamentalism has its origins in hate and fear, and these unfortunately infect all humanity.
