Atheism cannot be a dark side since all Atheism is is a lack of belief in gods. It's not a "side."

I am a Humanist. I believe in a rational philosophy of life, informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by a desire to do good for its own sake and not by an expectation of a reward or fear of punishment in an afterlife.

Atheism isn't a side of anything, rather it is a lack of a "side". 


Dogmatic, inflexible and difficult religions' greatest foes are liberal religions and vice versa.


Both groups are welcome to find an uninhabited island in the Pacific Ocean and fight it out amongst themselves as far as I am concerned. The winners get to stay on the island.

How about they use New Zealand? No one's using it except to make movies and raise sheep.

You may recall Gene Wilder in the What is Sodomy? sketch in Woody Allen's Everything you Wanted to Know about Sex but were Afraid to Ask.
