I don't like saying things like that, because I like you Harvey, and I don't want to offend you, but that's what I see as the truth. The exceptions to this are people who have deep-seated emotional attachment to the belief in God that basically blinds them from seeing the truth.
I like you too Stoic, but we do have a totally different worldview. Not just theist versus atheist, platonist versus nominalist, libertarian versus determinist-incompatibilist, etc., but I completely disagree with you on the state of atheism. For me, many atheists are messed up people. There are a few bright spots (e.g., people like Belorg, Fred, etc.), but I find way too many people who cannot see their own frailties and who just discount everyone who isn't them. Fortunately those people are in the minority. Let's hope no one like that gets to run the country. Oops.
Anyway, I'm sorry if I don't respect what you are saying here. I just don't. I'm not offended by it, I just think it's erroneous. And the great thing is that I can.
But, if someone wants to have a discussion where we can go over the reasons for holding a belief rather than listen to a long tirade of hearing someone spike their football in an empty stadium of no fans, then I'm your guy. : )
