Paul Kurtz, the father of secular humanism, is another atheist failure without a legacy

Is Paul Kurtz another atheist failure without a legacy?

I previously did an article on the atheist failure Farrell Till who is headed for leaving no legacy. In addition, I showed that Richard Dawkins and other major atheist and/or evolutionist websites have lost significant traffic in recent years.

I would encourage to read these articles at:

Paul Kurtz - another atheist failure personified

Paul Kurtz, who is "the father of secular humanism", appears to be destined for obscurity as well.

 Dr. Paul Kurtz appears to have been forced to resign from an main organization  that he founded which was the Center for Inquiry.  Dr. Kurtz described this humiliating event as a "shattering blow" in a Buffalo News article entitled Redirecting a long life of godlessness.  The infighting among the organization appeared to be a power struggle between the New Atheist (militant atheist) and the non-New Atheist factions of his organization.

On October 10, 2010, a contentious exchange between members of the Secular Humanism faction of atheism founded by Paul Kurtz and the atheist Ron Lindsay was caught on tape.Video - Part one and Video - Part 2

During the exchange Ron Lindsay said that infighting has been occurring within the Secular Humanism faction of atheism for years. A Paul Kurtz supporter said that Kurtz was censored by Ron Lindsay and his supporters and driven out of the organization that he founded (Center for Inquiry). On the other hand, Lindsay claimed that Kurtz voluntarily resigned from the organization he founded and Kurtz was never censored. Furthermore, Lindsay said that Kurtz's idea of a "planetary federation" was impractical. Kurtz countered that he was never allowed to publish why he resigned from the organization and that he was censored by the organization that he founded.
