Atheists are closed minded

"The atheist has just as many obligations that bind the intellect as any other worldview. In fact, I would think atheism has less intellectual freedom than theism. After all, atheism exists in a naturalistic box. It literally cannot think outside the box! [...] Atheism closes your mind to some options. [1]"

Not all atheists accept naturalism. Strictly speaking, atheists may believe in prayer, an afterlife, miracles, the supernatural, etc. However, many people came to atheism from skepticism which is a distinct belief that systematically doubts claims.

It is hard to see how the lack of belief in God is limiting to thought. There are many more political, social, philosophical systems that are compatible with atheism than with most mainstream religions.
