Humanism is not such a new religion at all. It literally has been around since humans existed. It can even be linked to Eve who questioned God's authority, and inserted her own. We have had people that believe self is the ultimate authority forever, such as today's Humanist/Atheist. These days, they're just getting more organized as other religions have.
Also, please spare us the argument that attempts to separate Atheism and Humanism. Sure there are exception, like the fringe group the Raelians, but for the most part they're one in the same.
Atheists will certainly deny they are a part of any religion yet we have made the case over and over again. (Insert past posts here)
I have even made the point that they worship the same god as Satanists. Recently though, they are really trying to branch out on their own, although the philosophy is still the same as the Satanists. Its probably because Satanism is just horrible PR. Atheists are now organizing themselves as a true religion. We read today that "atheist groups are lobbying for a chaplain in the U.S. military. The advocates hope to gain representation for what they say is a large population of nonbelievers in the military." I would think that they cannot deny it any longer. I could be wrong.
This is also on the heels of the release of the Atheist bible affectionately called "the good book". A Bible knock off of purely secular writings and philosophy.

We have discussed this subject of Santa many times here, but its catching on quite a bit as evidenced by what Ricky Gervais just said (strong language aside) on the Daily Show. So let's reference to this post in the future.
A few days ago I watched a video of shockofgod, who is discussing about this very subject many times in his videos and dubbed the term "Santa Syndrome" in 2006, he pointed out this video from MrBelrox that drives the point home well:

P1. "The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity." ~ Psalm 14:1
P2. "I pity the fool!" ~ Mr. T
P3. "God hates the guilty unrepentant sinners." (Psalm 5:5, Psalm 11:5, Lev. 20:23, Proverbs 6:16-19, Hosea 9:15) ~ Dan Marvin, Christian
P4. "Pity for the guilty is treason to the innocent." ~ Ayn Rand, Atheist
P5. Jesus is innocent. (1 Peter 1:19)
The logical conclusion is... No

I wanted to wait a few days as to not confuse people of this post being a joke in of itself. This is a serious matter that needs to be exposed and addressed. Our friend Larry Murphy points out the blindness (blinders) that the Atheists so often have.
Atheists are seeking to find justifications for their rebellion towards Christians and God. Its as simple as that. The argument has been made over and over as Atheists are anti-Christian, its not just all religions. Certainly not Buddhism and Taoism since they're atheistic in themselves.
I just want to make the point how irrational Atheists are sometimes in feeling that we are a real threat to their way of living, as the New Science article, 'Religion is irrational, but so is atheism', pointed out. (If you do not wish to sign up to read the full article, HERE it is)
Everyone should be aware of, and understand, that most of the Atheists here have a true moral opposition to Christianity as we continually point out. Hopefully, some are catching on to the fact that Atheists are suppressing the truth in unrighteousness to avoid accountability to God. It is the ultimate act of rebellion against Him and reveals the professing Atheist's contempt toward God.
The more accurate battle for the Atheist here, is an internal one. We should be grateful that the internal dialog is still active in some. There is still hope in them. When that dialog dies out, and they settle in on the cult of science (even if it doesn't address important questions like purpose) they then drink the kool-aid of their own religion of modern secularism. All is then, lost. Most just go one step further and wish harm, or place their sites on, the messenger also. We're the problem in their eyes. If eradicated, all laws would be 'secularized' and all can act as if there is no accountability, but to self. That is just not the case. If we do anything at all, we are here to remind you of that point.
