← It's no wonder evangelical atheists need to shout so loud

They wonder, for example, where the first gene, selfish or not, came from. Or, if it came from the soup, where did the soup come from? Or the universe as a whole?

When the atheists reply, "The Big Bang," the curious have one more question: what caused the Big Bang?

This casting of believers as curious star-gazers hungry for answers is really quite funny! Is he seriously suggesting that, uh, scientists don't wonder about these things?

I mean, what?

Reading this you'd think religions were nothing more than fora for vague philosophical discussion, rather than sets of very precise answers, plucked out of thin air, based on nothing, that you aren't even allowed to question.
