Whenver the atheists are challenged for their evident failure to under- take organized good works, such as feeding the poor, adopting orphans, or whatnot, they always bring out the copout that "atheism is not an organization, and there is no need for people who don't have a belief to organize."
Evidently doing good is not sufficient reason for them to organize.
Perhaps we are to assume that atheists do significant charitable deeds as individuals. But how do we know? Where's the evidence? We don't want to go believing something without evidence now, do we?
Meanwhile, there is plenty of evidence of atheists doing evil, or just being anal. We know this, because for these purposes they *do* get organized. Witness Communism, and the American Atheists.
But of course, for the activities of the religious, the atheists have an entirely different standard. Whenever oganized religion sinks to the same level as organized atheism, this is a point agianst religion in favor of atheism. But the constructive acts of religious organi- zations are ignored. I think the atheists would gladly make a big deal of their own large-scale charities, if they had any. But they clearly don't or else they wouldn't be reduced to the "not an organi- zation" dodge.
Of course, organizaed religion sometimes does things almost as barbaric as does organized atheism. But at least religion has a good side. All atheism has is a lame excuse.
Disorganization is not a virtue. A claim to not be organized is nothing more than a way to evade responsibility. Rather cowardly, wouldn't you say?
