I know this might sound like a surrender of the atheist cause, I just simply want to get this off my chest. We may be atheist and hate being bombarded with religious garbage (if I can say this without offending anyone), we do have to be realistic and accept that religion will always be part of society.
Religion is part of humanity, part of being a human being and it has been since the stone ages. Religions do come and go throughout history, I mean who worship the Ancient Greek god Zeus, or the Roman god Jupiter these days?
It is the view that atheist's would like to see religion just die out of its existence (rather than killing it, meaning deliberately dismantle it which would be religious persecution, something many us atheist are against), but that's not going to happen any time sooner, well probably not in my lifetime. Don't know if ever, but you can't never.
I have always viewed that religion isn't bad, it's people that makes it bad. There are obviously good people who are religious (like Mother Teresa) and bad people who are religious (like Osama bin Laden). There are also good and bad atheist's too. There is no good or bad cause conducted in the 'name of atheism' that I can think of, not that there should be any. There are no 'atheist charities', though there are plenty of secular charities, like the Red Cross and Amnesty International (though the founders of these two organizations are Christians, these organizations are founded on secular grounds).
We shouldn't deny religious roots that many of our institutions that have been founded upon. Universities were originally religious institutions to train priests and the early scientist were priests, wanting to discover more about 'God's creations'. Sure they have evolved over time.
However, we do respect people's rights to believe whatever they want. I do believe that we should not go out and say to everyone "there is no God" to people's face, it wouldn't do us atheists any good, but I do believe that we should be more debates about the role of religion in society and life. Religion will always exist whether we like it or not.
