Antitheism dominates atheism

Antitheism is opposition to belief in gods and atheism is rather passive. Antitheism opposes and atheism refuses. Antitheism and atheism are two parts of the same idea. Antitheism dominates atheism, like God dominates man. We don't have to learn again how to love or avoid premarital sex.

How does antitheism dominate atheism?  Just saying it doesn't make it so.  Are they the radical wing of atheism?  Do they have machine guns, like radical Muslims?

Suppose that antitheism is a concept of a machine gun. A proof that one machine dominates the over won't move us even a little bit. We need to get knowledge from the real world. Here comes yet another diagram, which includes the atheism and antitheism nodes.

I still don't understand the basis for your claim that anti-theism dominates atheism, unless you mean that anti-theism is a more aggressive form of atheism.

I'll take a rest and don't explain myself. Funny enough, people did some research about how agnosticism dominates atheism. The best rational choice for me is not proving that something dominates, because nobody would believe me anyway.

Here's what I think now about how atheism is dominated.

If you make a claim, you need to be able to give your reasons for making that claim.  If the reasons are convincing, other people might agree with you.

I hold fast to my opinion that antitheism dominates atheism. I put it on the Internet purely for aesthetic reasons. Reading an article about Fan Zhen is probably better than continuing this discussion and I can't write much more.

Yup, Fan Zhen made sense way back when...
