What is systems thinking?
According to the Systems Leadership Institute: "Systems thinking is a management discipline that concerns an understanding of a system by examining the linkages and interactions between the components that comprise the entirety of that defined system."
A fundamental principle of systems thinking is that if you have a key component of a system that will cause the system to shut down or degrade considerably then redundancy should be employed or the component should be able to be quickly replaced.
Within evangelical Christianity there is a church pastor and church elders. So should anything happen to the pastor, an elder can quickly step in and replace him in many cases. In addition, the Bible gives a blue print on how a pastor should be chosen and how he should behave. God knows what He is doing! See also: Growth of evangelical Christianity
Atheists on the other hand, put a very large amount of their eggs in the atheist celebrity Richard Dawkins basket. And to to make matters worse, they failed to have multiple layers of defenses against feminists when it came to them subjugating Dawkins under their collective low heeled shoes (Feminists don't wear high heels). Given Dawkins' two divorces before Elevatorgate (a sure sign that Dawkins does not understand women!), why didn't the atheist movement have a lady screen Dawkins' written statements to the public lest he wreak havoc on the atheist movement? Dawkins was a clear and present danger to atheism.
And when Dawkins went down in flames, did atheists have a replacement? No they did not. Perhaps if atheists better understood Intelligent Design, they would have a better grasp of systems thinking.
Atheists don't have a system in place to replace themselves
