Time to get pushy with New Atheists?

Atheists Debate How Pushy to Be
The confusion started by the Pew research poll is now in evidence in the muddled New Atheist camp.

I think it is time get pushy back, and demand from New Atheists some ground for simple agnosticism. The question of ‘god’ is beyond resolution: the attempt to pretend otherwise is a puzzling development. Why this strangely warped cult of disbelief?

The attempt to create a new cultic dogma out of atheism can only succeed in counterproductive outcomes.

The Pew poll was totally misleading, if not rigged from the start: the New Atheists are especially obtuse on the question of religion, even if they can spout better factual answers to a meaningless poll quiz. Their ignorance of the breadth and depth of religion is almost beyond belief. The all time prize goes to Hitchens for denying the existence of Buddhist enlightenment.

I think that agnosticism can’t be demanded from New Atheists, as the only way to in public, whatever they wish to state as their personal beliefs, taken on faith.
Kant exposed the bogus proofs of the existence of god. Time to see the same in the New Atheist cult of true believers who think, like Dawkins, that atheism can be foundationalized by scientism/darwinism.

Don’t let these closet Nietzscheans oozing the nice guy routine wreck the balance of real secularism.

    You can usually tell when a New Atheist is echoing Nietzsche reading even as he tries to cover it up.
    You would think they would discuss him. They are too afraid of their PR image and pretense of nice guy morality
