Because it's offensive to some people. I recommend the South Park Christmas episode.

There is a large difference between teaching science and preaching atheism. Science and religion are not necessarily incompatible.
As for preaching atheism, go for it, but it seems a little odd and self defeating to me.

Aheism is a secular dogma religion. Even though there is no divine entity
that define it as is. The nucleus of this teaching is that you yourself are
your own god. And that is utterly ridiculous. =)

The title of this thread is about atheism. Now you are talking about science.

Are you conflating the two?

If only to see by logic and not faith, the only sensible religion is atheism. I just have faith.

I'm not sure I agree with this. It seems to me that while I don't find many theistic arguments convincing, some do seem to be logical, in that the premises (if correct) lead to the conclusion.

Atheism isn't a religion (nor is theism, really). It's a position on whether one believes in God or not. Atheists have worldviews (naturalism being the most frequent I've encountered) as do theists (such as christianity). Some are more rational then others.

The main problem with folks who preach atheism is that they often ain't prepared for a well informed theist to give them a beatdown on philosophy. I think you go on to the Richad Dawkins website, you kind of see straight away that 90% of posters (and Dawkins himself) don't know what they are talking about. As for the atheists who are competent, they tend not be as preachy for some reason, probably because they realise rational disagreement more openly. You'll still get the odd evangelical atheist type who preach atheism from the point of view of philosophy of religion, and as long as they are willing to debate and consider the other side, there nothing wrong with preaching IMO.

Not really. When you get right down to it, all of the arguments have some logical flaw or another that prevents it from being valid.
