Research paper "Scientific Atheism and its Deputies between the 19th -21st Centuries: Religion’s Substitutes, Irreligious Rights Movement and Anti-creationism Non-Fiction"
Abstract: This article questions the reemergence of scientific antireligious activist movements in recent decades. Considering intellectual and political aspects of scientific materialism, Monist and New Atheism movements’ programs as well as the historical context of their development, a number of structural similarities is being drawn.

Also, science is employed as a tool of ‘freethought’ communities’ formation and campaigning for irreligious rights, and against creationism’s intellectual expansion. However, if earlier atheistic science popularizers were quite explicit on their world change ambition, contemporaries show no interest in authoring some new science-inspired worldview systems or political projects.
