The necessity for the scientific analysis of the modern atheism
The faculty member of the Islamic Research Institute for Culture and Thought, stressing the concerns over the modern atheism, said, “The new or modern atheism should critically be attended as it poses a serious threat. Atheism has a broad range of meaning.”
Saying that to not believe in God is different from atheism, he mentioned, “This ideology also encompasses agnosticism”. Nowadays Atheism is developing differently from the past”.
He stressed, “The modern atheism and its developments should be known. Atheism used to have a philosophical dimension, but now it attempts to keep away from philosophy. When it is seen from outward, it seems to have some philosophical foundations, but the pioneers of this ideology attempted to drop the philosophy and rely on the experimental knowledge and introduce atheism through experimental sciences.”
