I will begin by paraphrasing the beginning of a brilliant 2009 video made my Paul Elam – I am hoping to give you the opportunity to get inside the head of a hater of all feminists and liberals- well, at least this one. You see, there is a problem with liberals and atheists in this culture. Yes, I know, there are problems with conservatives, reactionaries and religious people- believe me, I’ve heard about them for the last 10 years. Some of it true and fair, much of it neither. It was a necessary dialogue just the same. And so is this.
I’ve been mentioning this term for almost an year and got a myriad of questions- just what is TAC? It means The Atheist Cult, but just what is that? Do I hate all atheists? When I did try to explain what the term was about I got even more questions – is it a some sort of a religious cult?
Here I will finally, once and for all, explain what I mean by TAC.
TAC is an abbreviation for The Atheist Cult.
So, what is The Atheist Cult? The Atheist Cult is a name I have first heard from a certain YouTube vlogger to describe what are basically stupid, dogmatic and intolerant liberals, most, if not all of whom, are atheists. I have decided to adopt the term and use it on my own.
Members of The Atheist Cult have the following traits
1 proclaimed but fake atheism (belief in god is actually replaced by other religious beliefs, like extreme and irrational religion of therapy or feminist myths )
2 general stupidity (lack of reading comprehension, inability to make or understand arguments)
5 cult of therapy and psychiatry in general
6 political correctness
7 batshit vocabulary, invention of new various bizzare new words
8 use of words differently than their original meaning (examples- threat, rape, harassment all used in exagerrated and incorrect way)
10 hatred of people they see as “privileged” (white people, straight people, males, usually goes along with misandry)
11 desire for censorship
12 belief that they are entitled to harass people because they are better and more “enlightened” than they are but tears when they start being harassed themselves- hence why they do things like statcountering, doxxing, rl harrasment etc but cry when they’re subjected to it themselves
13 absolute lack of empathy or any regard for perceived opponents
14 condescending attitude
15 pathologizing of perceived opponents (in connection and used with nr 5)
16 use of psychiatry to try to silence their opponents (in connection to 5 and 15)
17 virulent attacks on Christianity while defending and justifying Islam
18 obsession with other people’s morality while completely ignoring their own heinous acts (doing things in horrible frustration because of monstrous acts by others- terrible, supporting people who harm their children or doxxers- completely ok)
19 poor knowledge and understanding of history, which results in adapting myths regarding the so called patriarchy or oversimplification of events like colonization
20 religious belief in certain sociological concepts which can hardly be proven, like patriarchy, privilege or rape culture
21 a tendency to deny certain easily definable, understandable and provable phenomena simply because they don’t fit with their ideology – for example misandry, reverse racism or incel
22 incredible ease at declaring somebody they don’t like with a adjective they don’t like- for example, immense callousness and recklessness at calling people racists or MRAs
23 a great knowledge of topics such as LGBT rights, women’s rights or feminist academia but poor knowledge of everything else
24 indoctrination with main talking points of feminist academia
25 extreme rudeness
26 willingness to make every apology for female behavior while attacking almost all of men’s behaviors
27 purportation of themselves as some kind of a beacon of common sense and morality
28 obsession with phenomena like sexism or racism and social justice
29 denial of human nature
30 denial of differences between the sexes
31 obsession with certain “sacred words” like entitlement, privilege or creep
32 fixation on rape to the point of almost fetishization- simultaneous claims about the horridity of rape and its complete trivialization of it by presenting more and more banal actions as rape, all combined with ridiculous rape statistics
33 copious use of logical fallacies
34 a tendency to obfuscate and change facts, as well as fabrication of complete lies out of nothing
35 constant shaming attempts
36 tendency to make personal attacks and unfounded assumptions connected to these personal attacks
This are the horrible traits of an average TAC member and the reason why they will always be despised by all the sane people.
Here are some questions I’d usually get about this.
Do you hate all atheists?
Of course not. I am an atheist.. I do call myself a non-theist to distance myself from these monsters but technically I am an atheist. I had been an atheist since I was 11, since I could think about the concept of god. I was never religious in any way. I don’t hate atheists at all and this page isn’t created against atheists. I hate people with characteristics I described.
Are all TAC members atheists?
No, they’re not ! There are some people who are agnostic or religious and exhibit these traits. However, the vast majority of them are atheists and hence the name.
Is TAC some kind of an organized movement, some sort of a cult?
No, it isn’t. It describes hundreds of millions of people across the world – of course that it is impossible for all these people to be in contact. Most TAC members will only meet a tiny fraction of other TAC members in their lifetimes, and of course that most of them won’t form any movements.
But are there are TAC movements?
Of course such movements exist. There are thousands of TAC movements across the world, from feminist groups to various liberal organizations.
Where can you find TAC members online?
Um, is that even a serious question? They’re EVERYWHERE ! About 70-80 percent of people have these traits nowadays, especially in the Anglosphere.
Check any feminist blog or “progressive” blog and you will find them.
Ok, but where are some of the most vicious TAC members?
Try sites like RationalWiki, GeekFeminism or Freethoughtblogs. All of these people could be called brainwashed if only they had a brain.
How do TAC members view incels?
TAC members are at best patronizing and full of shit when it comes to incels. And I really mean “at best”.
In almost all cases incels are universally hated and spit on by TAC. There are several reasons for that. The main one is that TAC members can’t feel empathy for anybody except other indoctrinated monsters like themselves. Yet, not even a TAC incel can expect much support from them besides being told to waste his time with therapy. Incel is a primarily a male issue and TAC members hate men. Another reason is that the problem of incel ruins their idea of therapy as a panacea and their view of therapists as living gods for incels can’t solve their problem using therapy.
One other reason is that incels often appear somewhat misogynistic or at least weary of women, due to their rejections and bad experiences with women. TAC members see women as living gods who can do no wrong so they will always defend them.
In any case, if you’re incel you should avoid even talking to a TAC member, let alone getting any help from such a person. They hate you. Trust me, if you want to talk to them in a rational and civil manner you are wasting your time. All they understand are dogmas and hate.
How does TAC agree with certain more radical groups like radical feminists?
They don’t seem to share their trans-phobia or some other radical ideas. But their views of feminism are getting closer and both groups are gross misandrists.
Also, all of these radical feminists agree with TAC on almost every other issue.
I have some of these traits ! Am I from TAC?
Probably not. Having some of these traits doesn’t make you a TAC member. I had some of them until a few years ago. It is difficult to avoid having at least a few of these traits in a modern culture where people are indoctrinated that these traits are a positive thing. On the other hand, you can be one even if you don’t share all of them. What is more important is how you express these traits and how much they affect how you behave and what you do. If you have some of these traits it would do you well to get rid of them, though. I can help you with some of them.
Do TAC members have some good traits?
Sure they do. People purporting themselves as such angels are bound to have some good traits. I’m sure that most reasonable people will agree that homophobia or trans-phobia are bad, that abortion should be allowed or that free market isn’t a solution for everything. And this is usually where our agreement ends.
These people I call TAC are vile, indoctrinated monsters. They are wrong on just about everything and they’re spilling their poison every day, destroying decent people. They rant about religious fundies when they themselves believe in utterly vague and improvable concepts like patriarchy or rape culture with such vigour that even Church fathers are nothing compared to them. They are the worst religious fundies on Earth. They hate just about everybody who doesn’t share their dogmas and are extremely unpleasant.
Ending note – I am extremely interested in more TAC traits being mentioned here by commentators. I have surely missed some. Please make your suggestions and I will add them if they’re any good.
