    There is no new kind of atheism. Atheism= The rejection of belief in deities. Attempts to add or subtract from this meaning is ridiculous.

    However attempts to add or subtract to the ways atheists engage other religions is essential. The world has enough religious hostility so how can it hurt to have atheists who are more civil toward the world religions?
