Belief (there's that word again) that the world was flat, was held by a few relatively small population groups in historical times. The Mayans and the Egyptians knew thousands of years ago the general shape of the world. To most primitive peoples the shape of the world wasn't important.

Though I'll grant that fundamentalist oxymora are hilarious. "Atheist dogma". XD.

1) An authoritative principle, belief, or statement of ideas or opinion, especially one considered to be absolutely true.

2) A system of beliefs or doctrines held by a religion, or a particular group or organization.
How, in the smallest way, is the use of the term "Atheist Dogma" inappropriate or incorrect in this discussion?

...and gnostic/fundie
Is the use of this obviously derisive term on your part an indication that you find your own position and discussion points weak? Given that this a discussion involving religion, it has (until now) been remarkable polite and civil.

My suggestion is that you mind your manners, or crawl back into The Neutral Zone.
