The term "normal" is currently based on belief systems contaminated with faith, because faith is easy. "Normal" is defined by mob rule instead of scientific consensus.
The will of the masses be damned if we are going to save our planet. We are going to base our decisions on pure scientific research in spite of the marketplace which tunes itself to insatiable and destructive appetites which make up the majority of people.
After years of observing atheists attempt to plea, negotiate, bribe, debate, insult and criticize believers it has become clear that there is no reasoning with the faithful. A pattern of futility is emerging in the discourse between reason and faith. The evidence seems to point toward a subtle difference in neurological development which tends to further validate theories of Jean Piaget.
Normal is skewed because the wrong people are allowed to "be fruitful and multiply" without consideration for the availability of resources such as food, shelter and employment. The minority of people capable of reason are culpable because they are lured by profit into maintaining an economic structure conducive to indiscriminate overpopulation. Thus is born the cycle of poverty.
Exploration of Semiotics with Cognitive Development may provide key information necessary for examining the critical thinking skills of an individual prior to wasting your time in futile discourse, or lending support to an organization that perpetuates flawed thinking.
Eugenics has been vilified because it was attempted under flawed thinking. I'm not trying to start a master race of rational thinkers, I'm only suggesting that rational thinkers stop enabling those who are irrational and destructive.
Since atheism is a direct consequence of highly developed rational thought, it's a pretty good starting point to convey this important message of disengagement from support of the rest of society. I don't mean to suggest isolationism. We still need to get the word out to everyone about secular society, we just need to stop wasting our time debating with religious trolls whose only purpose is to distract us from engaging with potential atheist converts.
