If you believe you don't have to do business with anyone for any reason, I don't see how you can object to firing employees for the same. Any reason.

The point is so many things are similar you can have one person handle things instead of 200. It is simple logistics.

What you are saying is why have a doctor do general practice, every doctor's office should have all specialists all the time.

Atheism is what is hollow.


Atheism is simply rejecting the popositon of God, there is no philosophy to be hollow.

Claiming to follow a certain philosophy (and then not when it's inconvenient) is what makes something hollow.

Atheism cannot be hollow because there are no claims made (just a rejection of claims)....

That is what makes it hollow. There is nothing there.

That does not make sense.

Nothing is the DEFINITION of hollow.

What is inside something hollow?

The thing that makes something "hollow" (in a social sense) is a shell with no substance. Atheists don't make any claims. There is no atheistic philosophy to be hollow. It is simply not believing the claims of others regarding God(s).

Calling atheism a hollow philosophy is like calling abstinence a kinky sex position....

Atheists say there is nothing more to life. That is hollow. Atheist societies tend to be the most repressive or/and in decline. This is a result of hollowness.

Atheists don't say anything about life. They just reject the belief in God.

As for athiest societies, I assume you mean state sponsored Atheists (like some of the Soviet Bloc)? Nobody here supports forced Atheism...

I do support secular countries (like America, which was the first in the world, and still one of the only)..... Secular countries simply mean no State religion, but freedom of religion.....

Some people want atheism to be a religion. If so, I want to be able to organize our people in large organizations making money in a non-taxable status. We'll get billions like the big churches, I guess, all for preaching and spreading atheism.

Atheism is not a religion, and those people are wrong.

There are no common beliefs or principles to "organize". Atheism is just the aspect of rejecting a beleif in God.
