Very good points.

However...

1) Why not read the books, if you are writing an article on them? "He didn't read them and neither did I, but..." - everything he says would be even stronger if he had read the books and said so. Hell, I've read them all, and most people here have. Be nice to always be able to shove that in the face of a believer who hasn't.

2) I love irony & sarcasm, and it is well used here. Unfortunately, the better it is, the subtler it is, and hence becomes much less understandable to the religulous. But then, so is reason, and I don't expect them to get any of that either, so I don't have much of a quibble.
