This was no doubt because of the actions of some folks/organizations getting upset because she’s critical of certain aspects of religion, specifically Islam. What’s worse about all of this is that did Brandeis even know who they were giving this degree to? Did they even bother to research her work and activism AHEAD of time before they made their announcement? This is why the university’s decision was nothing more than ridiculous, to say the least, and many people especially in the atheist community and elsewhere (even Muslims who oppose extreme actions) should be upset over their cave in to the demands of the easily upset folks who don’t want their ideas scrutinized by someone brave like Hirsi Ali.<br /> <br /> References/Sources:<br /> Statement from Brandeis University<br /> <a href="http://www.brandeis.edu/now/2014/april/commencementupdate.html">http://www.brandeis.edu/now/2014/april/commencementupdate.html</a><br /> New York Times – “Brandeis Cancels Plan to Give Honorary Degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Critic of Islam”<br /> <a href="http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/04/09/us/brandeis-cancels-plan-to-give-honorary-degree-to-ayaan-hirsi-ali-a-critic-of-islam.html?referrer">http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/04/09/us/brandeis-cancels-plan-to-give-honorary-degree-to-ayaan-hirsi-ali-a-critic-of-islam.html?referrer</a><br /> “Protest Brandeis University’s withdrawal of honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali”<br /> <a href="http://ffrf.org/news/action/item/20339-protest-brandeis-universitys-withdrawal-of-honorary-degree-to-ayaan-hirsi-ali">http://ffrf.org/news/action/item/20339-protest-brandeis-universitys-withdrawal-of-honorary-degree-to-ayaan-hirsi-ali</a><br /> Dave Silverman – “Open Letter to Fred Lawrence, Brandeis University President”<br /> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/notes/dave-silverman/open-letter-to-fred-lawrence-brandeis-university-president/730873826933098">https://www.facebook.com/notes/dave-silverman/open-letter-to-fred-lawrence-brandeis-university-president/730873826933098</a><br /> Ayaan Hirsi Ali: ‘They Simply Wanted Me to be Silenced’<br /> <a href="http://time.com/56111/ayaan-hirsi-ali-they-simply-wanted-me-to-be-silenced/">http://time.com/56111/ayaan-hirsi-ali-they-simply-wanted-me-to-be-silenced/</a><br /> Wall Street Journal - “Here’s What I Would Have Said at Brandeis”<br /> <a href="http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304512504579493410287663906?mg=reno64-wsj&amp;url=http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304512504579493410287663906.html">http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304512504579493410287663906?mg=reno64-wsj&amp;url=http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304512504579493410287663906.html</a><br /> <br /> Tags: Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Hirsi Ali, Brandeis University, Brandeis, Ayaan Hirsi Ali Brandeis University, religion, criticism of religion, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Bible, Qur’an, God, Allah, honorary degree, atheism, atheist, atheists, university, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, free speech, freedom of speech, silenced, censorship, The Fantastic Skeptic Top 5 Myths About Atheists & Atheism tag:www.thinkatheist.com,2015-01-07:1982180:Video:1508947 2015-01-07T02:17:09.895Z The Fantastic Skeptic http://www.thinkatheist.com/profile/TheFantasticSkeptic <a href="http://www.thinkatheist.com/video/top-5-myths-about-atheists-atheism"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/VRZzgEZ7j90GjTStcJBaddFIQx-QW4N867IhkTR3ReVvaNl7Ev8veje7TTbuCmUOdvaSgcubbg8gsaT7iiBlIVaeY8QAHgGc/1101293738.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>This video was inspired by the book “50 Great Myths About Atheism,” written by Russell Blackford &amp; Udo Schuklenk.

Because this list is solely my opinion, I predict some people are going to disagree with some on the list which is why discussion is to be had in the comments section. Maybe some of you have heard theists state a few of these myths (I guarantee you if you read the book you’ll definitely have heard plenty more).<br /> <br /> References/Sources:<br /> MrRepzion &amp; his videos on going to Africa (disproving the myth that atheists are not charitable):<br /> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CseMSMBips">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CseMSMBips</a><br /> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjAuvZkWvhk">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjAuvZkWvhk</a><br /> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phSictvVsiE">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phSictvVsiE</a><br /> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiAEJQTNt-A">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiAEJQTNt-A</a><br /> <br /> Are Religious People Really More Generous Than Atheists?
