Western atheism as I see it has the tendency to go too far when it begins to condemn the religious perspective which relates to ultimate reality. This has already happened in Western Buddhism with the secular Buddhism movement. This is too radical in my view.
First of all, this kind of atheism lacks the spiritual eye. How can atheism judge religion, in general, when a religion like Buddhism or Christianity are in their context spiritual? This lack is reflected in this passage from 1 Corinthians 2:14:
The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
Buddhism sees the awakened person as one who has become spiritual, that is, fully cognizant of the luminous Mind which fully transcends the carnal man consisting of the five skandhas which is never other than conditioned and suffering.
I would also add to this, that in Buddhism there is a sharp distinction to be made between those who have entered the spiritual path and those who have not. One is aryan (spiritually noble) while the other is anaryan (worldly and ignoble).
The Western atheist seems to me, to have lost all sense of reason when it comes to understanding the religious perspective. Ironically, he is defending Islam which has a 1400 year history of trying to destroy all religions except its own, then on the other, preaching anti-religious secular humanism which presently dominates Europe.
