From: "The Little Book of Atheist Spirituality" by: Andre Comte-Sponville [English Translated version]
"Fanatic Barbarism is of a different ilk [than Nihilistic Barbarism]. Far from lacking in faith, its advocates are filled with certainty, enthusiasm, and dogmaticism; they mistake their faith for knowledge and are prepared to kill or die in its name. They have no doubts or hesitations. They know everything there is to know about Truth and Goodness. Of what use is science to them? Of what use democracy? Everything worth knowing is in the Book. One needs only believe and obey."
