The difference between religions and cults are measured in scale. :)

I don't think the atheist community has ever been that interested in Molyneux so I'm not surprised to see at least a few people skeptical about him.  There was Thunderfoot's video too.  I think he's reasonably prominent.     

The fact that Moly seems to be finding religion recently is unlikely to ingratiate him with them either.

It might be my imagination, but doesn't Moly seemingly have an opinion on all manner of subjects thus enabling him to engage more people in conversation to help fulfill his world? The subject matter is irrelevant so long as an audience  can be gleaned. Maybe cause a bit of controversy and conflict, find support etc, just as many a Manager might tackle a variety of jobs but not be specialised in any particular attribute, so long as he Manages to get the right results.

Yes.  It is like the guy chatting you up in a bar.  The conversation isn't what is important as long as he keeps you talking and listening.  The whole point is something else, to get you to go home with him.

There's no 'philosophy' there.  It is a bait and switch to get people to leave their previous friends and family, as he bragged in an early interview:
