What Fuels Atheism in America?

I think Jahmonkey asked a very good question in one comment. If I may paraphrase: how many Athiest groups operate homeless shelters, hospitals, foreign assistance organizations, and other actually helpful charitable establishments?

I would appreciate knowing of any, since I have not yet experienced any positive productive project created by any Atheist group, rather I have only experienced their criticism of whatever project (or idea) that was created by others.

@SDCyclist: glad you enjoyed my comment. However, I am serious--no irony.

What Fuels Atheism in America?

Let me preface my remarks with the statement that I personally maintain an “organic”, natural, and deeply seated belief in God which encompasses modern science, based upon personal experiences, not doctrine. I am well read having read from the classics to modern thought (e.g. Marcus Aurelius, John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, and Carl Rogers). I do my best to employ rational thought in my life day to day.

But be that as it may, I have lived in intimate association with certain modern atheists, who possess many virtues in their own estimation: thinking they are profound, learned, and humane, while in fact, I have found them to be hypocrites: displaying an unwarranted sense of self importance, arrogant, intolerant, scoffing, mocking, shallow, attention-seeking, obscene, using filthy language, and disrespectful of everyone and everything that contains any real virtue.

As a result,I have made the considered judgment that I would much rather spend my time in the company of religious fundamentalists and participants of almost any faith, if for nothing more than the clean language and polite manners alone.
