As Atheists, we have broken free from the religious manipulations of authoritative figures, books, traditions and dogmas. This, of course, is the result of reason and logic applied to what are clearly false pretenses and absurdities.
Yet, as human beings, we are not exempt from social responsibility. I feel, in fact, that our role is of special importance since we are free from the invisible cage of religion. Is it, therefore, the Atheist's responsibility to attempt the education of the "un-illuminated" in order to liberate them from the stronghold of religion, or is it a fantasy to imagine ourselves in such a role? Is there another social responsibility that might take much more importance for us as a group?
Healthy discussion is always appreciated!
